    Default Home made Kontrol X1/2 Gig Bag?

    I have a hard time coughing up $80 for the Native Instruments Kontrol X1 gig bag just to raise my controllers up to standard height. It smacks of exploitation...

    Does anyone have any tips or advise for raising the controllers up to standard height?

    Other brands worth looking at?

    either two minidv tape boxes on either end of the X1, or just buy the bag for a few quid second hand on ebay.

    Ditto. If space is at a premium, I leave them at home, but they are really useful. Also, you can sometimes get a discount if you buy with the X1.

    I use turntables & Dicers so I use my Ortofon needle case and my Dicer case. Both are the same height.

    I have 4 of the metal ones, and one of the original bag type (they've had 3 different designs from memory). I use the metal ones for my pair of X1mk2 and F1 that I take to gigs, another is on my Z1 and the bag type that I used to use with my original X1 is used with my TA10 because it also fits some RCA's and the PSU (it zips at the top and so has more space than the current version).

    I like the metal ones the best, great protection when transporting, perfect height for beside mixer, also good for a laptop stand (upside down) on turntables when space is a premium and I've found that the space that's created when I have an X1 and an F1 beside each other is perfect to put my soundcard to keep it out of the way.

    I know they're expensive but they come on sale every now and then.

    Seems like there's a lot of love for these little cloth boxes I'll go and check them out on the weekend and see what the fuss is about .
