Beatmaker’s Life!!! That’s what comes to mind when thinking of MonoCreators bags. MonoCreators makes bags for the musician by the musician. As such, The EFX Series Kontroller large capacity messenger bag is no exception.

The Kontroller is the largest messenger bag that MonoCreators makes. It is indeed designed with the Beatmaker and DJ in mind. It stands 13″ high, 20″ wide, 3″ deep and it weighs in at 4lbs. Now, I can say that I have had a gang of bags for my mobile beatmaker lifestyle. There are not a lot of options for proper storage of my gear. I’ve easily and successfully carried my 15″ Macbook Pro along with my MPC Renaissance in this bag. It all fit rather comfortably with room in the document pocket for a notepad, ipad and passport. Of course I usually keep a gang of little loose items in outer front pockets such as cords, business cards, portable mic/recorder, some random iRig stuff, headphones and small camera accessories. No joke. This bag is a beast.   :

Then there are the cool extras that Mono Creators took into consideration like the “Waterproof external phone pocket with headphone port”, the “Landing pad – Hi-density foam bumpers divert vertical impact out and around the case, away from your gear” and the “Earplug pocket located on shoulder strap.” Also, worth noting is the padded shoulder strap, comfy cushioned carrying handle,  and the plush padded inner compartments where your most precious cargo (electronic gear) lives.

In terms of build quality and durability? Well, MonoCreators says it best, “We build our cases to military specs, using only materials with extreme resistance to abrasion and the elements. Steel-riveted handles, high-density padding and a water-resistant shell insures a safe journey through harsh conditions. 100% animal free.” I can certainly attest to the durability and build standards as I have used this bag pretty regularly for months now. Yes, The Kontroller has hopped many a plane with BBoyTech. Not to mention the fact that I’ve packed with the likes of the MPC Ren, APC 40 mkii, loads of cables, iPad Mini, the Beatstep, 15″ Macbook Pro and more.



bboy_review_scale_5I think the Kontroller has got to be one of the most impressive bags that I have (and I have a lot of various bags). Not every one of them hold up or live up to thier own hype. Fortunately, MonoCreators understands the struggle of a Beatmakers lifestyle. I know this because their products meet the needs that we have and they look good doing so. Functionality, quality and style is a rare combination but they hit the mark every time. I cant find anything bad to say about the Kontroller Bag from MonoCreators’ EFX Series of bags by musicians, for musicians.

It’s well worth the asking price. This one is BBoyTechReport Certified Dope!
