The Muto DJ Bag from Tucker & Bloom – packed full of rare grooves, soundtracks and lounge tunes.

As someone who has used vinyl, it’s still nice to see some DJs spread the black liquorice in clubs, lounges, and even house parties. There’s just something elegant and simple about playing a record, focusing on the music, the audience, and the mixing. Yes, it’s antiquated in many ways, but vinyl will always have a place for many of us – and the Tucker & Bloom Muto Record bag is just the kind of bespoke bag you’ll want to carry it around in.

Features we love

There’s so much going on in this bag that you need an instruction manual, but it’s well worth the effort. The first thing we love is the ability to split the case from the center and use the right side as extra space to place your records. If you’re playing albums or records that you might be able to fall back on in a set, that extra visibility is a clutch.

The other great option is the ability to carry the bag with the handle, a traditional messenger strap (our favorite), or turn it into a backpack (which you will need the instructions for). Vinyl, as we all know, is heavy, so it’s nice to lug it around in a number of different ways.

Last but not least, the number of pockets and the build quality. This bag is made in the USA which you don’t see much of anymore and the materials are high quality and look like they could use abuse. They have pockets for your laptop, headphones, cables, needles, etc. and the lining of the bag is a soft, velvety material that provides an extra layer of protection.

Now for some of the things that we would change. No bag is perfect, and while we love this bag, we’d make some tweaks.

Having a small padlock to hold the pocket flap together isn’t the best, and the included lock is useless. So we’d recommend getting one of those little TSA padlocks with a three-digit code. The key that came with the lock will be lost immediately, so fix it when you receive the bag.

While the Velcro feels sturdy to the touch, we should have zippers on all bags, especially a laptop pocket on top of the bag. It just feels a little too risky and the Velcro closure creates small gaps on the side pockets that could cause problems; they didn’t seem to close super tight either.

Summary: If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind bag made by artisans specifically for vinyl DJs, you’ve come to the right place. The Muto is a beautiful record bag with nifty little quirks that you will appreciate and find helpful when porting your vinyl.
