Despite being in what seems to be a golden era of digital, cloud based communications and control panels, an increasing amount of professionals are being called to travel for their work. For many, the likelihood of packing up equipment and travelling with it all over the country, or even abroad is becoming a matter of when, and not if. But don’t feel daunted! We’ve put together a few quick lines of advice for the uninitiated professional traveller and the essentials to consider when taking equipment away on business.
On the outside of it, the bare essentials seem pretty cut and dry for musicians. Protection for your instrument coupled with a decent solution for whatever form of amplification that you need (if you do in fact need it) would tick most of the boxes. But what many musicians fail to consider is the sheer amount of technology that goes along with playing an instrument. Often, many cables are required, digital amps and preamps can be essential and instrument effects can take a lot of room up as well – possibly even more than the instrument itself!
Before you embark on the road with your musical equipment, make sure that you know exactly what kind of protection you’ll need to keep your livelihood in one piece when travelling. And don’t just count on compartments inside your instrument case!
2) Event Professionals
More often than not, hardworking event professionals are in charge of storing the equipment of everyone on the job (including client belongings) on top of their own expert technologies. A full audit of exactly what equipment an event will need is a step any good event prof will recommend is taken to avoid disaster. Knowing the lighting, audio and technical requirements of a venue or show will let you plan far in advance just what kind of storage capacity and space you are going to need to avoid any slip up in production. And with this, get your orders in for any extra cases you’ll require.
Mechanics that travel for the work mostly know exactly what they’ll need to be armed with. For the most part this will be tools and parts. The question of transporting these materials safely though is another matter entirely, with standard road protection often not doing enough to prevent delicate tools from being thrown out of calibration, or parts from being contaminated or damaged. Be sure to investigate how you are transporting your equipment before any journey, to avoid wasting valuable time and money re-calibrating, re-stocking or even replacing them when you arrive. Think personalised inserts, heavy duty cases and material presentation systems.
4) AV Engineers
One of the distinguishing features of the AV industry is that it never stops reinventing itself. What could be considered one weeks’ cutting edge is outdated by Sunday. That’s why when travelling for work within the AV field, versatility in your protective luggage can save you literally thousands of pounds – not just through the protection of your kit, but by saving you the trouble of purchasing new flight case / protective equipment every few months. Consider large road trunks with replaceable foam inserts as a viable long term solution to the ever changing face of AV technology, and cases that are tailor designed to branded kit.

Live events are, above all else, exciting. Atmosphere counts for a lot, and it’s no more noticeable than when you are at a concert. Fan-fuelled excitement matched with frantic energy from the performer can make for an unforgettable experience. But, what really makes for a standout performance is visual spectacle. There are performers out there who have really nailed utilising their entire live crew to create a performance that although in some cases can be just half an hour long, is near enough impossible to top. Here are a few examples of when performers and engineers have got together to create live events history.
1) Take That’s Circus Tour
Take That followed up their huge 2007 Beautiful World Tour with 2009’s The Circus Live. It had to be just as memorable as 2007, which is a challenge not to be underestimated considering Beautiful World featured a giant light-embezzled moving robot! The answer? To create a live show that teamed stellar performance with creative lighting and sound, elevated with breath-taking mechanics. Featuring two separate stages for a panoramic experience and a huge mechanical elephant (because why not?), Take That’s Circus was ambitious, bombastic and delivered with precision.
2) Rammstein’s Many Pyrotechnics.
Lots of people when watching a live show will take the pyrotechnics for granted. They will see a quick bang, or maybe a singular jet, but never pay much attention to the level of detail that has to go into planning these effects which can often be as dangerous as they are mesmerising. Rammstein, a German metal outfit, are masters of this art. Each member of the band is a licenced pyrotechnician and their act involves flamethrowers as standard – yes, flamethrowers! Anybody acquainted with the rock and metal scene will confirm that Rammstein are kings of the visual spectacle.
3) Lady Gaga’s Superbowl Halftime Show
Whilst it was a relatively short performance, Lady Gaga did incorporate one element into that may have been a glimpse into the future of live events; coordinated drones. Bringing pilots and programmers into the live events fold, these drones utilised lights to make for a backdrop in the sky, an indication of how the technology could be used in the future. Laga Gaga set the standard for making the stage whatever it needs to be, and wherever it needs to be, allowing audiences a completely different viewing experience.
4) Tommy Lee’s ‘Cruecifly’ Drum Rollercoaster
Motley Crue were a staple of the rock and metal community for years and it’s no surprise that a band who were known for debauchery developed a completely pointless (but fun) roller-coaster for the drummer, Tommy Lee. The 360’ degree loop structure took 4 hours to build before every show and would see Lee circle the track and perform his instrument at the same time – often upside down. For a time, fans were even able to win themselves a trip on the coaster with Lee during the show, making it one of the more elaborate and unconventional stage props in the live event world.

Often, clients come to Pro Flightcase (our specialist bespoke arm) to request a custom case for their kit, but find themselves leaving with much more. This is because our storage and transportation solutions go beyond simply designing a flight case that perfectly fits your equipment.
We understand that your kit and projects can be both expensive and highly sensitive. Contamination, physical damage, spiralling project durations and production impeding design are all challenges that professionals face on a daily basis, so why not demand your equipment work harder and get yourself a solution that eliminates these dangers?
Everything from anti-contamination flight cases to precision engineered accumulation systems, our solutions are among the most innovative and most versatile on the market today, designed to face any obstacle by offering unparalleled levels of customisation, protection and durability. This means that as our customer, you rest assured that your valuable equipment and components will remain safe and secure when in storage, transit and during projects.
For example, many of our clients’ time is eaten up by re-calibrating their tools following stints travelling. Whilst this may seem to be an understandable downside to working whilst on the road, mechanical projects that are time sensitive may suffer thanks to improperly handled or contained gear. And, as many know, all that preparation time quickly adds up, and can often add hours or even days to a project if equipment is improperly contained.
Then there is the question of if the inaccurate equipment can be recalibrated. High costs of tool replacement can be an unfortunate side effect of subpar containment or protection, and like the piling up of working hours lost to tool recalibration, the cost of replacing equipment can mount surprisingly quickly.
This is where great tool control solutions come into play. Pro Flightcase understands the importance of keeping your tools and equipment safe, secure, and easily accessible. Our Pro Flightcase team can design and build bespoke tool control systems (single cases from workshop racks) that fit the exact dimensions and specifications required for your equipment. Perfect for
eliminating handling mishaps and reducing re-calibration time.
Then, there is the problem posed by a cluttered workspace. No matter the workspace, it is always the case that the less organised a space becomes, the higher the risk is of damaged or contaminated materials – and more time is spent searching for materials. Lack of storage space can be a real concern when materials need to be kept pristine, as contamination of materials leads, again, to expensive replacements.
Pro Flightcase can help your business to improve workplace safety, cut down on warehouse and workshop clutter, and save valuable project time with our innovative space saving cases and accumulation systems. Our space saving solutions allow you to store your essential equipment in one convenient location. Our space saving cases range from more traditional racking and storage systems to functional portable workstations, so you're sure to find a solution that works for you.
Clients who have used Pro Flightcase anti-contamination solutions in the past report increased productivity, great capacity, lower costs and overall speedier project turnaround thanks to reducing the effects of contamination.
