Question for those that gig with a Stick headphone

How do you guys travel with/pack your stick headphone?
Iím just curious because obviously it wont fit in the
headphone compartment most record bags have. I usually
pack a UDG Trolley bag with a large book of about 300 CDís
and place the stick in the same compartment mainly because
thatís the only place it fits.

At my last gig I was just about to get on the decks and I opened
up my bag to find the hanger had snapped and the stick was
unusable for the gig. Luckily another friend had played earlier in
the night and was still there and he lent me his cans. The funny
thing is I usually keep a spare set of regular headphones in the
bag but I had taken them out before this gig so I could use
the room to fit a stack of promo CDís.

So yeahÖ just wondering what everyone else does to travel
with/pack your stick to prevent it from being damaged.

Stick

My boy uses a small flight case for his collection of sticks when he gigs.

I have the UDG Creator Laptop Backpack and the stick heady fit's perfectly in the main pocket next to my X1. The backpack is perfect, ok I dont like the Serato sign because I use Traktor.

That UDG Creator bag looks like an interesting option. I'm wondering if it would fit a large 300 disc CD book though.

The Flight case is probably the safest idea but it just bulkier than I want to deal with.

Idealy what I was thinking of is to get some kind of thin/lightweight plastic case thats just big enough to fit it but small enough to fit in my UDG bag with my CD book, and then line that case with foam and make a cut out for the stick so it fits nice and flush. I can't seem to find a plastic case that looks like it would work though.

Now I'm thinking of hitting up TAPS plastic to see if they have either a square or round tube with end caps that would work.

All I know is I gotta find some kind of solution for this because I don't want to worry about my Stick breaking every time I bring it to a gig LOL.

Maybe some kind of microphone case would work? This still might be bigger than you would want though.

Maybe you could get one of these to carry it for you.

HMM... thats actually not bad. I don't like the inside, I'd have to gut it and put foam to make the stick fit perfectly but it could work. Or, there may be other mic cases that would fit the bill better. I like the idea for carying it too... my girlfriend probably wouldn't be so down for that though LOL

back in the day I used to just use real milk crates and put the headphones in space on side along with some CD's, record cleaner, my needles, and some extra lighters. Pretty sure thats not the look your going for. Have you considered pelican cases? They're light, really durable, and come with pick-foam. They're a little expensive but I think worth it. They're also some knock-offs that are a little cheaper. But if you go with the milk crates, stay away from the store bought ones. They fit the records perfect, but no space on the side for extras. you're just gonna have to steal the real ones on the side of the bagel store.

I use the "space in milk crate" approach. My hanger snapped as well at some point, and my wife was kind enough to duct tape it back together for me.

I'm about to build one out of an old military handset. I'm pretty sure the thing is a lethal weapon and even the driver is encased in metal, so I think that will be the last of my reliability issues.

Here's a phone that's very similar to the one I have: http://www.bunkerofdoom.com/mil/tele..._handset_1.jpg

I use the headliner Stashpack, so I store it in the upper section of the bag. If I'm playing all records, it doesn't fit in my UDG roller bag, so I have small bag that I put it in and just attach it to the handle or carry it.
