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.

Hard to beat

By Cavtrpr

from Waco, TX

I bought a 6-space about two months ago and I like it so much I've just bought another one. I was concerned at first since this is so inexpensive that it might not hold up but it's a very tough little case and well worth the money.

Great for money

By themanman

from Chewelah, WA

I got the 6 for my bass head and other items that also had to be mounted. I have a conditioner, a tuner, a wireless, a sansamp, and my SVT-3 pro. although the thing weighs more than my 8x10 custom, it takes an equal beating being out on the road. I don't know if they built mine great or what, but mine has lasted me just about a year and no problems. as a musician you never want to haul your stuff around and eventually just start dropping it where it goes, throwing the lids off to the side. this thing has went through all that and still manages to hold together just like it did the first day I got it. excellent buy if you are in need of something fast and you are low on money.

It Did the Job

By Ebok

from New York.New york

ive own this rack for about 7 months now and i think it is great and it hasent let me down the things has got dents and scratches in gallor. i do heavy lifing with my things and i belive my rack weighs 60+pounds. i think the buy is great and its great for people who are just getting into racks. but for me i needed to get swiched up to a bigger one(6 to a 8). theres only one problem i have with this and it is the size my friend owns a roadready one and it is a 6space mine is a 6 space it is about 2x the size

Great for the price

By JohnC

from Owensboro, KY

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.

Not bad but

By River-aO1Im

from cumming, GA

This rack is cheap and a good deal if you're on a budget.... but there are a few things you may want to consider before buying one of these. As many have said, they are fine if you are doing light traveling with it, and careful handling. However, the construction of the rails are very thin and they are threaded. Several of these were already stripped when the rack arrived. Also, 3 out of the 4 feet that came on it were broken. They are made out of some plastic material, and not out of rubber and split very easily. If they would replace the rails with thicker metal, and make those feet out of rubber this would be an AWESOME rack, however.... with those shortcomings and with the construction "ok" (it doesnt fit together snuggly in all the joints) it is mearly an ok deal.... and only if you are not really beating on your equipment at all.

For The Money...

By Tha Spectre

from East Tennesse

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.

Don't rule it out because of the price.

By The Running Man

from Snohomish, WA

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.

Great case, but...

By timlikeHim

from Utica, NY

I ordered the 4-space rack and just received it today. The case is well built and sturdy. I have no doubt it will protect all my gear, as long as I don't drop it out a high window or run it over with a truck. My only "complaint" is with the rubber feet that are on one side of the case. You cannot see them in any of the pics, but they're there. Mine came with 3 of them cracked and broken. When I called customer service to get replacements, I was basically told I'd have to send the whole thing back for an exchange. Way too much hassle for such a little issue. Other than that, I'm very happy with it and would recommend this to anyone looking for a good case for the money. Inexpensive doesn't always mean cheap.
