For any of you who have invested in a Traktor S2 or S4 and you are planning to use this on the road or travel with it then i would highly recommend protecting it with some kind of flight case/bag. So what is the best case for Traktor S4 or S2? Well lets take a look.

 

There are a few options that work really well and I would suggest that you check them all out before making a decision and purchasing.

 

Traktor Flight CaseFirstly lets look at what seems to be the most highly recommended of all the cases on the market at the moment which is Native Instruments very own Traktor Kontrol S4 flight case. This case is designed especially for the Traktor S4 controller and is reliable and robust.

 

Like a quality guitar case it has soft padding inside and is extremely durable on the outside so it can take a knock or two. It is perfect for any mobile DJ and has a laptop stand included that slides out providing a fantastic DJing station with all the controls at your fingertips.

 

You need to bare in mind that it is twice as heavy as the s4 so I would certainly recommend that you have transport to travel with this.
