I have owned the 4U case for over a year now, but only used it with equipment in it for a few months. I can understand people's skepticism on these things, they skimp on a lot of details that would make a REALLY good case...if you're going to use it to carry your crazy expensive and awesome tube amp, and your main concern is getting protection for drops or falls, then no, this isn't going to work. It won't handle a fall if there's anything heavy in it. But! Since I have not been using it, and it has only been sitting in my basement for a long while, I recently decided to test it's durability (to see if it will protect my Mesa 400+ from falling objects/projectiles/bumps and scratches, etc.., and also aid in carrying). And when I tried to break it (within reason) it wouldn't budge. So if you just need something to protect it from battlewounds, then it will work fantastically, and it's uber cheap...but if you want something with the ability to withstand a drop, then don't even consider this, not for a second. Gator sells a nice shock proof case, which I will probably buy sooner or later.Good luck regardless.

IMO, I believe that any rack out there should be something that the owner can trust, no matter the price range or level of professionalism.I used the 2U product to house my bass head. Though my bass head is unscathed, I could not trust the rack. The handle, only being held together by 6 small rivots, would shift a little bit as I walked with it, and I'm thankful it never broke. Rack handles should be firm.The side panels were not fixed into place well. As I pushed low frequencies through my cabs, the vibrations would make the panels rattle VERY LOUDLY. Not acceptable.Finally, and worst of all, the rails/screws are mega cheap. The depth of the threading is extremely shallow, and there is not a lot of thread to hold the amp in place. About half of my screws stripped before I finally got the amp securely into place.This buy was too good to be true. Now, its a really big paperweight.

For The Money...

By Tha Spectre

from East Tennesse

See all my reviews

I own 6 of these (2, 4, 6 space) boxes. I do at a minimum of three shows a month. I don't have my amps mounted in one (I have a caster mounted suspended Pro box for the four of them). I do have my tube composers, wireless, signal stuff, and drawers. The guys that help are rough with; they haven't yet dropped one, with the move and pack. They have held up since I bought them 6 months ago. I'm impressed with the "toughness" of such an inexpensive rack. For the money, the projection provided, and durability (So Far); I love them and plan to get one more to house the half space wireless systems I just bought. If your a touring artist or pro sound guy. I would spend more on the Pro Stuff. If you?re like me, local area DJ and medium venue guy, these cases are definitely for you.

Have used these for 3 years now /Good Case I.M.O.

By Thunder Wiegert

Ask me a question

I purchased a 4-space and two 6-space racks 3 years ago and they have held up real well in one 6-space I have 2 crown 1000 power amps and in the other one I have effects crossovers etc. and the 4-space one I have a E.V. monitor power amp. and E.Q. I have put these thru alot and they have held up well for me, there getting a little scuffed up but at least my equipment is not. In My Opinion it was a well worth the investment for me. and I will be purchasing a 2-space in the near future.

By GypsyBassist

I suppose this is what was advertised, but barely. As many other reviews have noted, it doesn't fit my 2U-standard Ampeg B2R bass head. The fit and finish are sub-par on the inside; the outside looks good, but one look at the inside makes you wonder what is actually holding it together. Not to mention the fact that it is HUGE, far bigger than ANY rackmount equipment I have ever seen. If you want to take the time to customize it to your uses, I suppose it's a good deal.

depends on the use

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

If this thing is just getting plunked in your studio to hold stuff and prevent it from getting dusty / things falling on the gear, go for it. However, if you are luggin around power amps or any heavy gear, the screws will strip and get lodged in the screw holes on the rack rails. And unlike the better companies, these rack rails have the threaded bolt holes built in, so if one strips, you are SOL. As far as durability goes, I've taken my 6-space to a couple gigs, and it has held up with a lot of care, but I've also read a number of horror stories on here about handles ripping off and the like. IMO, save another 40 or 50 bucks and buy the lower-end SKB molded cases. They will last ya much longer (I own several), and they don't run the sik of falling to pieces from regular use.

Much better than SKB

For the cash this deal rules. Very heavy duty... good enough for regular gigs and basic hauling around.. might not be good for super heavy road use. very good product overall!

Not Bad For The Money

By Smitty-28j_7

from South Georgia

See all my reviews

Got the 8 space rack home and had read all comments, so I went and cut a piece of plywood, painted it and mounted some wheels on the wood and then mounted wood on the case. Works great--for the money you can do a little work and save yourself a lot. The case has held up for me and keeps my QSCs' safe. If you're on a budget and can tinker a little these case are fine or spend a bundle and get the pro cases. Buy it I feel they're worth the money.

MF rack case

By brian-5xkmI

from ohio

See all my reviews

this case protects well, but is poorly constructed and poorly thought out. the latches are on the case itself and not on the lid so they rattle when on top of my bass stack. the frame inside started bending for no reason which concerned me a little. the other night i was wheeling my bass stack back to the back of the venue after the show and i hit a vent in the floor and everything went flying. my 2 space rack case was on top of the stack and it, with the 50 pound peavey head in it, went flying. it hit the ground hard but the head sustained no damage and only one latch on the case was bent, but it is still usable. the only thing that could make these cases better is if the latches were on the lid and if it was a bit lighter weight.

Great for the price

By JohnC

I use higher end case for my power amps and many of my rack effects, however, I was in need of more rack space and low on cash. I purchased the 8-space rack about 3 years ago and have not had any trouble with it. It has been traveled over a four state area since it's purchase, however, it is, as all my equipment is, handled with as much care as possible. I say for the money, you can't beat these racks. I plan on getting a couple more.

junk

By billyp90

from Kingston, ON

Bought this case to house guitar stuff (Egnater pre. Mesa 50/50 the like, when I got this thing the hardware on the covers did not line up with the rack. Needless to say it's quite an act to get the rack closed up to travel. Absolute bottom line construction. I could have done better with a hammer after drinking a bottle of Jack, seriously disappointed.

Fantastic Value

By Jeff-rp3iZ

from Undisclosed

I have used several of these cases for Audio Visual production work (wireless microphone systems, video playback and switchers etc....) and they are a fantastic! The idea of a heavy-duty recessed handled case in this price point is amazing. Remember, the idea of rack cases is to protect equipment - they may be a bit heavy compared to other cases but I certainly don't worry about my stuff being damaged when packed in the back of the van.

Had it for a couple of weeks and it fell over and the corner cracked and now the rack is out of square. Poorly cnstructed and a waste of money. It is out of square so bad the lid no longer fits right. Would not recomed this unit to any body. JUNK!

By Matt Cody

I love this case for the money, I use it every week at the venue I run and every gig my production company does. It holds up just as well as my Pro cases, I have owned and gigged the 8 space for 2 years. I modified it with casters and use it to tote a power conditioner and 3 qsc's. It's been treated rough but has always held up i recommend it to anyone who needs a good rack case!

Don't rule it out because of the price.

By The Running Man

I bough the 8U Rack Flight Case about 3 months ago. It has held up to hauling around all my gear (including a 45lb amp) without any problems. The hardware is solid and it comes with enough rack screws to fill your studio ten fold. My only complaint is that the rails are metric, so your basic 10-32 doesn't fit, but they do give you a ton of rack screws. Overall, very impressed. who knew you could get a decent rack for this price.

Not bad

By Da Moose

I work for a live sound co. and we use one of these for an effects rack. It's seen a lot of use and while it's not the most heavy duty case it's not bad at all. Unless you've got a lot of gorillas slammin' your stuff around it'll be fine.Belive me, I usta build these for a living.
