in Buyer's Guides
We spend thousands — no, hundreds of thousands of dollars — on lighting, staging, audio and equipment for productions. Most of the equipment is road-ready and can handle bouncing around in a truck on its own. Anyone in their right mind would never do that, though! Why risk something breaking or getting smashed by truss loosely packed?

This month we look at protecting that gear. Most new equipment comes with the option of a road case, and most of those road cases are built as OEM products by the companies listed below. Then there are those instances where a truly custom-designed and built case is required. Most of the companies in this month’s Buyers Guide handle that kind of business as well.
Typically, the PLSN Buyers Guide compares products of a specific type, such as LED wash lights or lighting consoles. Comparing companies with custom road case manufacturing is different than comparing a similar set of finished products, however. We’re talking more about custom manufacturing capabilities than finished product specs and standardized MSRPs.
