      Comments about Gator G-901 Rolling Amplifier Head Case:

      This case exudes quality all over. It's very rugged and sturdy.

      The wheels are great feature for carrying it around.

      Find it too unnecessary bulky and over dimensioned. That makes it a bit unpractical to handle, transport and heavy.

      Lacks a third handle that would make it easier to stand it up when you need to carry it.

      A more compact design with the same quality and a third handle would be great.

          I use the case to potect my Line 6 Spider IV 150 head. Tight fit but I prefer that. Extra room for my speaker and instr cables. Plus my FBV express contoller. Well worth the money and piece of mind.

          Great case, but you may need to improvise a little.

          Comments about Gator G-901 Rolling Amplifier Head Case:

          I would definitely recommend this case to any guitarist who needs to transport their heads (aside from the one on their shoulders).
          I own a Mesa Boogie Stiletto Deuce (Series 2) head, and decided to purchase this carrying case for transporting to gigs. The two smaller compartments on the inside are great for all of your extra necessities (pedals, pedal boards, cables, etc.) This case looks like it can fit virtually any head out there.
          This case looks and feels like it's built pretty well. The handle seems very strong. I've dragged it up flights of stairs, and it is holding up well. Plus there's also two soft handles on two sides of the case. This is ideal for carrying up or down flights of stairs, if you choose not to pull or push the case on it's wheels.

          I do have a criticism of the way this case is designed.

          I would like to see future models include a third soft handle. Holding the case just from opposite sides forces you to put your arms and wrists at a somewhat awkward angle, especially with the handles being horizontal. A third handle would allow you to carry the case with your arms closer together, which makes it easier to carry. The handles should be vertical as well, because this will put less strain on your wrists.

          But the most important thing I should address...

          In all likelihood, there will be a few inches of space on either side of the head once you put it in the case, depending on the type of amp you have. I don't like the idea of my amp sliding around in the case, and bumping into the inner walls. But before I ordered it, I knew that this was a likely scenario. Here's what I did. And if you can figure out your own system for extra cushion (packing foam is likely the best), by all means, give it a shot.

          I bought a 12 foot roll of bubble wrap, and cut it in half. I rolled up each half, and wrapped masking tape around them, to create a cushion. I stuffed each roll of bubblewrap into the spaces. Then I took a bathroom towel, rolled it up, and placed it on top of the head, on the side closest to the handle. By having the towel in that spot, it provides more cushion when you tip the case forward. If you are wheeling the case, and then you want to stop by tipping it forward, the amp is going to fall forward inside the case, even with the bubblewrap on the top and bottom. Placing the towel on top of the amp, and on the section that's closest to the handle, keeps the amp from smacking into the inner wall of the case.
          Even with the extra work that I had to put into it, it is still a worthy investment, and it's practical for guitarists who value their gear, and who may also carry a lot with them!

          Too heavy for the handle

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Gator G-901 Rolling Amplifier Head Case:

          Very heavy case - add an amp and the handle is quite undersized. Handle broke off in my hands as I was getting ready to go down a flight of stairs - stood at the top of the stairway holding the handle while the case/amp tumbled end over end finally slamming into the concrete floor at the bottom. Amp chassis/tubes survived, but the amp cab was destroyed. Case survived too - sans the handle. Gator did send a replacement handle free of charge. - good customer service!! Kudos to them for that.Good product for storage, occasional use. Retractable handle is undersized for a loaded case.Inside covering wears/tears quick/easy.Outside pocket mesh wears/tears quick/easy.
