The best find of the week award goes to these fabulously cosy soft travel bags for 2-tier and 3-tier racks of Moog’s 60HP semi-modulars. Your synths have never been so well looked after.
Moog Studio soft case
I have taken a 3-tier Moog rack out to gigs before and it’s a bit of a nightmare. I wrapped it in towels, put it inside a soft PA speaker case, and gingerly carried it around. Oh for something as hilariously cool as these bags from SynthToys.
The cases are handmade in Turkey, designed expressly to accommodate the 2-tier and 3-tier Moog racks that mount up the Mother-32, DFAM and Subharmonicon. Perfect for the Moog Studio bundles. They are waterproof, filled with a fur-like material and have both handles and a shoulder strap. On either side is a zipped pouch for patch cables and power supplies.
With the flap open it does look like you’re about to put your synths into the mouth of a monster, or perhaps the boot of a car. There’s something about them that’s comedic. Maybe it’s the wedge shape, or how it looks like a boot that an old-age giant with bad feet might wear.
Both the 2-tier and the 3-tier bags look brilliant. They are exactly what you need to protect your Moog tower if you were thinking of taking them out there into the chaotic world of live performance.
The 2-tier is available from the Etsy store for £155.11, the 3-tier goes for £189.57 plus postage. There are some great reviews on the store page.
