I got this idea from someone else, but thought I'd pass it along. This Ridgid case from Home Depot - $29 - works very well for storing and carrying an AX8. I added the foam to keep it from moving around inside the case, but in its stock form the AX8 fits remarkably well - only a smidge of clearance all the way around. There is enough room on the side for the power cable and an XLR or two. And this thing is super sturdy. Given what can be $pent on soft sided cases that are ostensibly designed specifically for musical gear, this seems like a steal and is way more durable. That is all.
