Amplifi 30 Gig Bag

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an Amplifi 30, and am quite surprised at the quality of sound; it sounds very good indeed.  However, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to carry it (unless I'm missing something.)  What do you guys use for handles or a gig bag?

I use an Arctic Zone cooler that I got from Wal*mart as a gig bag/carrying case. I put the power supply and my Relay G10 in the bottom, then invert the 30 and put it with the control panel facing down. There's a bit of a taper on the sides of the cooler, so the 30 fits snugly and doesn't go down far enough to touch the stuff stored below. And there's an upper tray that I invert, which keeps the 30 firmly centered. It's not a 'perfect' fit, but I'm very happy with how it works out. There's also a front pocket that can accommodate a guitar cable or tuner, if you need a little more space.

 

For a carrying handle, I happened to have one from a Micro Spider. I attached 2" heavy duty Velcro pads to the sides of the amp and the strap. Works great!

 

Maybe I'll attach a pic or two, if anyone's interested.

cbrillow,

Sounds like a great idea. Please do provide a pic or two. I've been thinking of the ZT lunchbox bag but would like to save some money!

Here are some quick pictures. The names are pretty much self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, fire away. I wasn't able to locate the carrying strap I made from the Micro Spider handle, but one of the pictures shows the hook & loop connection on the side of the Amplifi 30. If I find the strap, I'll show what it looks like attached to the amp.

 

Edit: I see that the filenames don't show up. So here's a brief description.

 

Picture 1 -- Amplifi 30 inverted and snugly fitting in the case, with power supply and cables at the bottom of the cooler. If you're not comfortable with the snug fit, the blue hard plastic liner comes out, which will make for a looser fit, but also result in less protection from impacts. The liner is slightly tapered, so the amp will not go all the way to the bottom, which leaves some storage space for accessories below.

This tray is designed to fit at the top, to separate what you put up there from the contents on the bottom. (Nominally, beer or soda cans...) I've inverted it so that it fits nicely around the amp's perimeter and keeps it centered in the blue plastic shell.

very cool! just to verify it's the 30 can zipperless cooler here?

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Arctic-Zone-30-Can-Zipperless-Cooler/35733211

 

I have the 16-can version, which measures  12.25" x 7.375" x 11.25" (31.12cm x 18.73cm x 28.58cm) 

Edited by cbrillow
Deleted a reference to the 9-can version, which is what I incorrectly thought I had.

I'm thinking I just may use a plastic trash bag... :)

 

Sometimes --  like after a failed Amplifi firmware update, which is far from a rare occurrence, as documented on this forum -- a trash bag would seem to be an appropriate choice...

I found this on Amazon, and am thinking about it.  It looks like it might fit...

The description and dimensions shown are unclear and ambiguous:

 

This is an 11" x 9" x 6" shoulder bag with a large zipper compartment and 6 double snap pouches. The pouches work great for magazines, but this multi-purpose bag is perfect for any other equipment.

Made from heavyweight canvas and

  • Product Dimensions: 16.6 x 11.6 x 2.3 inches

'Made from heavyweight canvas and...'    And what? 

 

Which set of dimensions is correct? 2.3 inches? What dimension is only 2.3 inches?

 

Think I'd ask for clarification before ordering this.

I ordered it, but can always return it.  It will get here tomorrow and I'll report back

 

Update: It would have been perfect, but it was too small; sending it back.

Maybe next size up... will keep looking...

Well, if if its just for carrying, there is Kind of "built in" handle: the slit along the top is built for easy carrying too. Just grip the handle :-)

Nope, not the 30. The 75 and the 150 have this, but not the 30.

Looks good! Seems the 16-can size coolers are just right for this purpose. I saw another brand at Costco the other day that looks like it's also a good fit.
