Mic stand bag - why didn't I know about this sooner?
« on: May 13, 2019, 04:51:07 pm »

I've got cases and bags for all my gear....except mic and speaker stands. Piles of stands rattle in the vehicle, make packing awkward, and are a pain to schelp in and out of the gig. And despite attempts to keep them separated they tend to get banged up quickly.

On a whim the other day I googled "mic stand bag" and discovered Gator makes a nice padded 6 mic stand bag that keeps all the mics separated, and a speaker stand bag as well. They were reasonably priced so I ordered one of each and was quite pleased. I'm sure most of you figured this out long ago, but for anyone still out there in the dark like I was, solutions do exist :-)

Welcome to "finding solutions".  Kudos!

More than likely, any issues you come across, others on the forum have experienced it and found a solution for it!

Keep up the good work.

Another fun solution for tripod mic stands is a golf bag.  I keep 4 or so in a golf bag in my basement....I pull when needed, like I'm grabbing a 9 iron.

I got one of these about six months ago.  My nice, new mic stands come out looking nice and new.
I have one of the compartmented Gator speaker stand bags that came with my used Ultimate TS99BL stands - not padded, but separate compartments.  Also keeps these stands like new.  However, they fit the stands like the glove fit OJ - can get them in, but a lot of face scrunching necessary for the audience.  A strict method to squeeze them in is necessary.  Another 1/2" would have been perfect.

K&M has a great selection of bags for their stands. Other stands fit, as well. Good measurements on teh web site.

I discovered this a year or so ago after having my stands get all scratched in an all-in-one bag. Great bag and I bought one for my sub poles as well.

They get way too heavy and the straps rip (on all of them, not just the K&M's) rolling golf club hard cases or trade show booth cases are the goto for small quantities of mic stands.

For larger gigs a clamshell type case with cut outs for the different mic stands is a much better solution.

A few weeks ago, I picked up one of the Gator 6-pocket mic stand bags like the OP mentioned. I use it for carry-in gigs where a hard case isn't feasible or when I need 6 or fewer stands. It's quite sturdy. I'm sure it will give up eventually but with 4 K&M 210/9s and 2 heavier On-Stage stands, it didn't feel stressed.

Hmm..not bad.


I'm still looking for a solution to carry a few K&Ms along with my two Manfrotto 1004BACs and 099B extension pole for my recording rig. I think that Gator bag would be too small for the Manfrottos.

Yeah the same kind of bags are marketed in the uk by Gravity, they work quite well for a handful of stands. As said, the K&M ones tend to fall apart fairly quickly.



For bigger sets of stands, a full stage set, we tend to get flightcases made with drainpipe inside to separate them and stop them rattling about and chipping each other's paintwork.
