    Looking at getting a wt-300 soon but before I get it I know that I'm going to be carrying it around a lot!

    So I looked at eden's site and it said 80. I think I can do better.

    For example I was thinking about getting a fender effects bag or something like that.

    Any other solutions?

    Yeah I was the same - I couldn't believe how expensive the official product was when I bought my WT300.

    I just bought a small padded rucksack - about the same size that people use for laptops etc.

    So this means I can put the amp on my back and carry a small cab like the VL208 in one hand and a bass in the other - all very portable!! :D

    I bought a 3 rack space Groove Pak from eBay for $40, shipping included. Although I've never owned one, I'm sure it's at least as efficient as the one with Eden's sparkling golden logo for $80. ;)

    Look around. You'll come up with something.
  4. Of course, if you're really into cheap, try your local thrift store. They have all kinds of canvas sacks for like, $1.00. They might even have a laptop bag that would work for not much jing.

    I'm using the 12H x 13W x 3D (inches) Rok Sak padded bag. A very snug fit and fairly cheap at $22.95 (USD) from American Musical.

    For one I don't live in America which makes it harder for me to get anything south of the border.

    For the idea about a laptop bag wouldn't the
    wt-300 shake around inside?

    This was what I was thinking about...

    No - you just have to get the right size - that is, one that fits the amp well - just measure it!!

    I found it very easy, as most "outdoor" shops have hundreds of rucksacks of all shapes and sizes and they aren't that expensive - just pick the one nearest to the dimensions of the WT300 - mine was less than £20 and has lasted about 4 years !!
