For all you denon DJ’s looking for a flight case solution


I may have possibly found a reasonable one. a while back I posted a travel case which consisted of a Pelican 1660 case. Although this case is rock solid it may cost you a small fortune in baggage fees because of its size.

I recently came across a Pelican Air 1637 case. I had no issues checking it in with my luggage on an international flight. When they threw it on the scale it weighed 50lbs and most importantly my gear in the case survived the 14 hour flight. I’ve attached some pictures.


I dig it. I have two 1637’s sitting in the basement too.


The fact that 2 decks and a 4 channel mixer, plus a single, checkable flight case maxes out at 50lbs is what living in the future really is about. Thanks for sharing. That is sincerely impressive. I feel kind of dumb having multiple,really large and heavy, Odyssey flight cases in my gf’s basement. I’ll dream of the Pelican Air (orange) tonight.


Now I’m second guessing my magma case… THANKS A LOT LMAO


Yup! If you don’t mind hooking and rehooking everything up, this is the way to go vs a coffin! I personally wanna save that time setting up and breaking down for gigs so I’ll be eventually going to a coffin (that magma case you’re second guessing! lol … wanna sell it? :stuck_out_tongue: ) that lets me keep everything hooked up (currently mine just fits the units themselves) but otherwise this would be the way to go for sure to help keep size and weight down!

I wonder if everything would fit with Decksavers on the the players too?


Nah I’m keeping the coffin for grab’n’go quickness and adding external powercon and xlr hookups lol But in case I need more space in my car I would totally go for a pelican case.

The magma case is really neat with the wooden panel that covers the cables and everything fits perfectly flush! It’s super duper daggum heavy though, I need to start working out.
