I purchased this rack to add extra protection when shipping the Ampeg SVT6PRO that I sold.i am still using the rack it was in, just a different amp now.

I received this item and was a little put off by just how thin the wood was, but I figured it would be fine.

My customer received tha amp and called me stating that the rack rails had pulled completely out of the wood. The amp had this been sliding around back an forth in the case the entire way to AZ, I'm in SC by the way.

Luckily the amp was ok, but not without some scratches etc.

I would not recommend this rack to anyone who values whatever they are putting in it, particularly if thinking of using it for a heavy amp or power amp etc. it simply isn't song enough.
Absolutely not fitting of professional audio equipment.

VERY THIN WOOD
Price seems good,but it is a poor quality product.

Musician's Gear 8 Space Rack Flight Case

By Melinda Mobley

from SC

Comments about Musician's Gear Rack Flight Case:

The 8 space case arrived intact in a box, and without extra packing material. So far so good. The dimensions, with lids, are 20 1/2 inches wide, 23 1/4 inches deep, and 15 3/8 inches tall. It has 4 rubber feet, recessed spring handles with rubber hand grips, spring loaded twist lock latches, ball corners, aluminum edging, and black laminate. Okay, lets open her up. Latches work fine, covers come off easily. Front rack rails attached with bolts and nuts. No rear rack rail. Bag of screws & washers for attaching equipment. Wood thickness is 5/16" and tapers to 4/16" at latch for 3". Dimensions front to back open are 18 1/4", top to bottom 14 11/16" , and left to right 19 3/4". Pop rivets attach all latches with washer backing. Walls attached with L brackets. It seems sturdy enough for home use or light gigs. Time will tell. I think I'm going to paint the interior with a coat of rubber paint.
Time will tell
Good value for product.

Decent rack for a good price

By james deborde

from Virginia

See all my reviews

Comments about Musician's Gear Rack Flight Case:

This review for 2-space model. It's a value rack well-suited for light touring (a.k.a. small to mid-sized group that plays a few gigs a month, loads your own equipment and doesn't throw stuff around). Solid enough to protect your gear...you shouldn't stand on it if you super-size your Double Quarter-Pounder with Cheese combos while on the road. No rear rack rail. NOT PICTURED: handle on the 2 space model is recessed and on the front lid, which places a little more strain on the latches...but honestly, how heavy can a loaded 2 space get? I'm using mine for hauling amps individually because I have a bad back and lifting a case with multiple amps just got old. Holding up very nicely, no complaints.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Rack Flight Case:

      The photo of the product shows that the handle for these cases is on the side of the rack. However, the one I received has the handle on the lid. This puts all the weight on the latches, which is a very poor design. Good thing Musician's Friend has full money back returns.

      Cheap case is in fact, cheap.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Rack Flight Case:

      Black and chrome is a classic look, It certianly makes you look like a pro Very nice features for the money. There are hundreds of much better cases out there in the world, but this one costs much less.
      This case is one of the most affordable hard-sided cases on the market. The latches and handles are very nice for the money, There are only rails in the front, the whole thing is very lightweight.
      This thing is light, very light, the latches, while nice on a case at this price, feel flimsy and I suspect will break in time. the lids fit snugly, but the handle feels like it will probably pull right out of the side of the case, you can feel the side of the case bend as you lift it. I don't have amps or anything very heavy in there. I have a 3 space line mixer, a DBX comp limiter, a 1 space ventilated rack spacer and a Furman PL-Plus power supply, Not heavy items and they seem to overload the case. Honestly this is a great rack case for gear that needs a home but rarely goes anywhere.
      This is the cheapest hard sided case anywhere. Especially with recessed latches and handles.

      Best Bang For Your Buck!

      By Aaron Johnson

      from Seattle

      Comments about Musician's Gear Rack Flight Case:

      Awesome product overall!
      It does one thing and does it very well.
      I am very pleased with the build quality of this case. I have used many other brands or road cases and found them all to be about the same quality using the same materials. This case is just as nice as another Road Ready case I have been using for the last 10years of rigorous touring. My only issue is that it's far to deep for the gear I keep in it. It would be nice to have a shallower model available but that's it. If you're in the market for a case of this size, I would highly recommendpurchasing one of these!
      Best value on the market!

          Comments about Musician's Gear Rack Flight Case:

          I've been playing professionally (local) for over 20 years. I'm making the move to sound engineering and wanted to move my 8u studio gear into a flight case. It will be babied and I didn't want to spend $300+. Figured this would work. Now I hate moving rack equipment around, don't know why. I even use a cordless screwdriver. I just don't like it. So I started at the bottom. Unscrew 4 screws, lift out, screw in 4 screws. Now I'm making progress! Repeat twice and I notice the screws are starting to bind. The screw holes are too low. So I loosen all the screws and lever everything down to get them lined up. But they will NOT line up. I had to pull the mounts from my studio rack to mount in this! I lined up the rails when they were both out and the flight case mounts are about 1/16" less distance between holes. This won't effect a 4u or smaller, but you can NOT mount 8u in this case! I contacted MF CS and they tell me it doesn't look like I actually have 8u of gear(?!). I'm shocked and appalled. I've been shopping MF since before the Internet. Not anymore.

              The only knock I have on this product is that the photo showed 4 latches per lid for the particular unit I bought it only came with 2 per lid (I purchased the 8 space rack case). However, after using it I don't foresee an issue as this seems like a very sturdy case, and compared to others out there that I spent a lot of time researching, this was a great value.

Still in great shape, strong, and very durable! For the money, you can't beat these cases. I've had other brands, and they fall apart! So far, these cases are the best I've used.

                  I bought this case as an upgrade for my bass rack gear and am very pleased with the purchase. Some other reviews thought the quality wasn't as good as some other brands that cost twice as much. In my experience, these cases are a great value for the money. Solid, sturdy and road ready. The case was a little deeper than my previous case and one of the feet was loose, but it was a quick, easy fix.

                  I bought 2 (a 4u and an 8u) The 4u held up OK til I sold it a year after I bought it.. After 2.5 year, the 8u is nearly junk.. the fit/covers were warped and messed up on arrival, and mf didn't want to discount it much, but I decided to "live" with it, rather than ship it back.. my mistake because within the first year.. 2 of the 8 latches broke. At this time 4 of them work. its basically junk..

                  i own two of the 8u racks. the first one i purchased a year ago is still in great condition and has been on the road its entire life. i just got one last week, and the construction of the box has changed. this one will not see the road, and it has already changed shape. i'm afraid to attempt to put the lids on it. build one yourself, or look elsewhere. my 2c

                  If you a straped for cash, this unit can't be beat. I would recomend it in a heartbeat. However, if you decided to use it for fx, eqs, and other processors, I would be against it. It is much to deep for this application and becomes rather heavy on one end, making akward to load in and out from gigs. For housings amps, it is plenty deep, but for processors, spend the extra money on a shallower rack. It will make things much easier for you. Though in a pinch, there is nothiong wrong with these units for that purpose, it is more out of convience and practicallity that I would lok elsewhere.
                  Simple rack. I have the 6 space and it is plenty big. The rack does lack rear rails for mounting, but for most applications, this should not be an issue.
                  Arrived in good condition. The rack is bulky, but not too heavy. The lid latches work fine, however the lids themselves seem to be slightly off. They do fit, but on mine, there is a slight curve to the metal groove, so the front and rear cannot really be interchanged. Could just be mine, but it really doesn't impact functionality. Wood is a little thinner, but for most use, it is just protecting gear. not sure how road worthy it is, but for the few gigs I do a year, it has worked out fine.
                  You'd be hard pressed to find a comprable rack for less. It even includes rack screws. Does lack instructions on using them, but it is pretty self explanitory.
