Padded gigbags for M13?
by thindave on 2009-03-20 06:18:52

Hi, I was wondering what folks are using to carry/protect their M13s?

I think a lot of people here have mounted them on pedalboards.  I have mine on a pedalboard from NYC Pedalboards.

RIght, that's the second option - so, it looks like it would just fit by itself on a PedalTrainJR, but the pedaltrain 2 would allow for the exp pedal and maybe another pedal or two?

This board by Gator is also decent.  I use it for my X3L rig.  I think you could easily fit the M13 and two expression pedals on it.

YOu can use the POD XT Live bag to transport the M13, together with cables, ac adapter, and two swell pedals. That's what I do and it fits perfectly.

I am using a Targus laptop case that fits like a glove and has extra pockets and storage that comes in handy.  The case was for my old HP 17" book.

CKT500_cases_b.jpgThis is off the web, but it looks just like mine.  I used it last night for going to practice.  it held the M13, power supply, (3) 15' cables, ipod and cable, folder of sheet music, extra strings and picks, all organized.

I also bought the Pod XT live bag.  It's got pockets and spaces for the cables, cords, and my expression pedal.  Well made, too.

Another vote for the Pod XT Live bag.

I hate zippers so I went with this:

Holdsthe M13, power supply, 2 EX 1s, and related cables.

fiveonethree -

Do you have any pics of your M13 and exp pedals in this case?  I like it but just wondering what the fit is like.



Re: Padded gigbags for M13?
by fiveonethree on 2009-04-14 15:45:07

no pics but the fit is very tight....only an 1/8 inch behind the unit which I stuff a padded divider (included) into and enough room on the side to squeeze the power supply in...then a layer of foam (included) over that and room for 2 expression pedals on top and 2 three foot cables and one six foot cable....case is full



Re: Padded gigbags for M13?

Thanks for the info.  Are you putting two Line 6 EX1 expression pedals in there?



Re: Padded gigbags for M13?
by RichRenken on 2009-04-14 17:55:19

No pics either. But when the M13 is in there, it is a great fit and to the right there is room for 2 expression pedals. You can then put the power supply in the pouch. Or you can put a Volume pedal to the right of the unit and 2 expression pedals and the power supply in the pouch and lay your cables on top of the M13. Very cool if that is all you bring.

n/p....yeah, I put 2 ex-1s in there....

Damn, that's a great idea!

LOL - I ended up getting the Peadaltrain Pro with the ATA case.

I have my M13, Morley Little Aligator Vol & Morley Tremonti Wah, Korg Pitchblack tuner using a Voodoo Labs Pedal power 2 plus.

I like it, but it is pretty damn heavy. I may pick one of those up as the price is so cheap and I have a harbor freight near my house.

Pedaltrain makes a nice board but I would need one 6 foot long because I use 2 digiwreck processors and the M13. So it's easier just to use the aluminum case and 2 paintball gun cases I snagged over at walworld. Fits in my tiny trunk better too.

Nice work with Hallows Eve dude. I was digging that before myspace locked up on me...



Re: Padded gigbags for M13?

Thanks!

Yeah, MySpace locks up and crashes my IE browser all the time. It does better with Firefox.

I think you're right about using multiple cases. My board fully loaded and in that ATA case is a real drag to haul around.

Ever since that last media player update crap has hit the fan. Bummer, I use to like to listen to music and check out pics over there...

Peace...

For anyone that was interested, I just found the same case at The Home Depot for less than 25 bucks.

Line 6 bag works great.

I HIGHLY recommend this one.... especially if you travel with a guitar in a backpack case in airports and want to bring your M13 with as carry on. Because it rolls it is ideal for guitar as backpack guys and gals. If you've ever tried to wander around an airport with a guitar backpack AND something to carry with heavy stuff in it, you'll know what I'm talking about.

It really amazing actually... and it's a good price for the quality. The zippers are solid.

I can fit the M13, all my cables, 2 expression pedals, a small guitar stand, a huge extension cord, the M13 power supply, and a whole bunch of small stuff in the pockets in the front area.

I have the big pedal train in the road case, Pro i think? and i can fit a cry baby, sib mr echo, dl4, sib mr vibromatic, ernie ball vol ( the old big one) and two othe od pedals of similar dimension to the sib pedals.

Its a squeeze but it fits nicely

Gator cases have awesome gig bags.  Great build quality for a good price.  I got one of the smaller ones to fit the M9 and was able to just fit the unit, the AC adapter, and the midi cables in the case.  Snug fit.

Several have mentioned the Pod XT live bag.   What are the exact internal dimensions of this bag?  It doesn't state anywhere on the line 6 page for this product or anywhere else.

I have used the 2U gator rack case in the past.  I used some upholstry foam placed between the side of the M13 to pad the power cable (not connected just to the side for carrying) which kept the whole thing rather stable.  I used a utility knife to carve out a "pocket" in the foam for the power xformer to sit then made sure the power cable ran tothe outside.  I used the felcro ties to keep the wires neat.  This left me room in the top zipper pouch for the cables.  It was a lot of work but I felt it saved me from having grief due to breakage and harsh handling.

Now I use the Pedaltrain 2.  Everything is self contained.  However, since I use the 4CM I have a little backpack for that.  Here is a pic of the PT2 with case.

Note I just uploaded the files. The embedded images went away

Oh yea, I use some automobile cabling tubing to put my cables in so the setup time is a minute start to finish to lay out my board, run the 4 1/4" jackes through the other front hole and connect M13 and amp.  I am using Mesa amps with a single rhythmn/lead switch.  Since I have found that I don't need distortion or OD I use the volume pedal and EQ out of the that family.  The songs I play range from Lincoln Brewster to Maranda Lambert to AC/DC to Journey to blues to Baptist revival (yep that is my style). 

I have yet to find another FX I would need that is not in the M13.  I have found that using my Fender 75 or Acoustic 165 [Mesa Mark I clone] or practice Kustom 12A does need other effects.  So the amp and style have as much to say about how your board AND what case based upon board size you might need.
