I waited some time before I ordered this, it seemed a bit pricey for such a moderately priced mixer. However my small gigs started to stack up and I do not have a car.
I use this in combination with the Decksaver DSP-PC-QU16,
because while the soft-case offer decent protection, I wanted it to be able to take a direct hit on the front from any protruding obstacles.
After a few gigs I started to love it, easy handling, feels very safe and it looks damn good. The freedom of being able to carry both mixer and a full sized stage-box on the train to a gig instead of lugging around a heavy hard case is very refreshing.
In a perfect world this would come with straps like a back pack and I am considering making that addition myself.
I recommend it strongly, both as a convenient tool and a handsome accessory.
