I just got a PCB Beauty Dish and need a carrying case for it. What do those of you who have BD's use to carry yours around in? Looking to get something somewhat inexpensive but reliable!

Depends on what size it is.

B&H sells Hensel bags for 22",

Or you can use a snare drum bag from a music store for smaller ones.

Mine's 22". Never thought about using a drum case. I do work in a music store part time.

The Kacey Location Bag is excellent for a 22" beauty dish and some extras.

Robert is correct.

I just received this bag for christmas and it's a very nice bag. It was a little more than I wanted to spend however it's very good quality.

I heard of some people having luck using Christmas wreath bags. Pretty inexpensive. You might be able to get them even cheaper now that Christmas is over.

This might be a good option if the PCB dish is 8" or less in depth:

Since my Speedotron dish is too deep for the Flashpoint case, I'm still using an original version Kacey bag. It's a great product; highly recommended.

That "thing" is also $10 cheaper than the Kacey bag and $120 cheaper than the Tenba 22" BD case (http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …34_502_Car_Case​_CC22.html (external link)).

I use a piece of foam around the rim and a blanket that I tie a knot in around it.

This is for a Mola Demi 22"

It's pretty ghetto, but thats how the previously owner gave it to me and it worked well for them and now for me.
