Arriba Cases introduced the first line of soft cases designed specifically for mobile lighting fixtures this year. Now the company has received another roar of approval, as American DJ has announced its endorsement of Arriba Cases, calling them an affordable way for lighting users to protect their investment in gear.
“We are endorsing Arriba Cases and recommending them to users of our lighting products, because they are so affordable and convenient, yet at the same time offer a high degree of protection,” said Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “Arriba makes the only case of this type on the market today. These lightweight soft cases are ideal for DJs, VJs, and working bands who want to keep their fixtures and budgets intact.”
Made of a durable synthetic material, soft, padded Arriba Cases protect mirrors, glass, lenses, and fixture casing from scratches and damage during transport from gig to gig. Designed by a team with decades of experience in the mobile lighting industry, Arriba Cases are patent pending.
The very affordable Arriba line features cases for a wide range of fixtures, from small lasers to centerpiece effects. They are designed to work with lighting products from all major suppliers.
For example, the Arriba model AC-135 can fit American DJ’s DJ Scan 250, Emerald Scan and Electra 250; Martin’s Mania SCX 500 and T-Rex; Chauvet’s Intimidator, as well as similar-sized fixtures from other manufacturers. The model AC-155 can hold products the size of the American DJ Avenger II, Chauvet Cyborg, Martin Ego Series, Omni Systems Rebus, TEI Maxima, and others with similar measurements. There’s even a case (model AC-150) designed for PAR can systems, which holds not only par cans, but also tripod stands, chase controllers and dimmer packs.
The cases have an extra wide mouth design that allows fixtures to be removed quickly and easily. They also feature view windows that allow specific fixtures to be readily identified when packed inside. A zipped pocket allows for storing extra lamps, clamps and other accessories.
In addition to the US, Arriba Cases are available in Europe and Canada.
