Best gig bag for an HD500X?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have suggestions for a good bag to carry around my new HD500X?  Nylon with pockets for cables?

 

Thanks,

 

Dennis (New DT-25 & HD500X owner)

What's best really depends on what you're looking for, but if you're looking for a nylon case with a pocket, the Gator Case is great:

I've been using one for my HD500X for several months and I really like it. It's just a bit snug on the corners, but that gives it a nice comfy fit without letting it bounce around inside the case.

Awesome.  Gator is right here in Tampa, US made.  We use them for our live sound gear (mixing, racks, lighting, etc.)

 

Thanks!

No problem. I think you'll like it if you end up going with that one.

It will fit, I've seen the question asked/answered before.... no further details here.

So it shouldn't be a problem

You can get an official Line 6 bag for $60 on amazon. I've used their XT Live bag and it was very study. Gator is very good as well and cheaper.

I've been usuing the SKB HD500 case for my Digitech RP1000 for the past 3 years (finally just started using my HD500). It has major problems with the zipper pulls. Both came off after a few months and eventually got lost. I replaced them with zip ties. The rest of the case is fine and has held up to a lot of use and abuse with no ill effects to the content inside. Other than the zipper pulls (which may be a deal  breaker for you), it has no noticable wear and tear.

Yeah I use the Gator too mate, brilliant and just the job. Stick the power supply in pocket so it's never lost.

The HD500 and HD500X dimensions are identical.

Thank your for this recommendation I purchased this gig bag today based on your advice!
