The SKB Gig Rig series has set the standard for mixer/rack cases for more than 15 years. Based on the 1SKB19-R1406 Mighty Gig Rig design, the 1SKB19-R1208 Gig Rig provides more versatility than previous generation Gig Rigs. The 7 angled top steel rails are 12U rack spaces with extra room in the back for cable connections. The lid provides enough space for cables to stay connected as well as, space for the optional 1SKB-AV8 retractable shelf. The front facing 8U steel rails provide enough space for amps or outboard gear.

Rear rack rails are included for additional mounting storage and support. In the same fashion as the Mighty Gig Rig, the lid can also be used as a pedestal. By placing the lid on the bottom wheeled skid and locking down the Gig Rig on top, the mixer height has perfect performance position. The 1SKB-R1208 Gig Rig includes two injection molded extra-long handles, (one per side) for easy lifting in transport. Four heavy-duty locking casters complete the new Gig Rig.

FEATURES
  • Roto-molded of Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE)
  • 12U Rack spaces (top)
  • 8U Rack spaces (front/back)
  • Threaded Steel Rails Lid can be used as a pedestal
  • Rear Rack Rails are included

    Comments about SKB 12X8 Gig Rig Rack Case:

    This is a really well designed travel case for PA equipment. My band uses it as a rolling rack mount case for a top mount mixer, amplifier, multi-band EQ, compressor, and a Furman multi outlet power conditioner with front lights. It saves as a working desk-height access to the mixer board, with the rest of the equipment stored in the racks below. It all packs up into a well-protected rolling box with side lift handles. It's heavy even without anything in it, and all loaded up it's a two person job to carry it. The locking wheels are great for rolling the box on smooth surfaces, but it's a bear to carry up stairs, in outdoor settings, getting it in an out of a vehicle, etc. It's very well designed, looks professional, and sturdy. But a chain is only as good as its weakest links, and this is no exception. The first case we got contained broken parts- specifically the locking clasps that hold the various sections of the case together, and the plastic pegs that secure the side panels when it's closed up for transport. The metal clasps are weak links here- they are poorly designed, and prone to failure. The plastic pegs on the side panels are fragile, and once broken can't be replaced. It's too bad that these flaws exist, and if they were corrected, I'd give this rig five stars.

        This really is an excellent case for the money. I use an A&H QU16, no issues there. I ordered a 4U drawer for mic's and such. I initially thought it was too high to fit in the back of my Subaru Outback, but if you remove the bottom caster tray it fits great. Very happy with this purchase. Nice and compact.

        Bigger than expected, which is not a con, just big. Very, very sturdy, not even UPS could have damaged it in there handling. Ha! My guess it will last a life time.

        Comments about SKB 12X8 Gig Rig Rack Case:

        This unit has configuration to make taller, but not always necessary. The support underneath mounting sound board could be much narrower as to put other componenets like power conditioner and all its power cables. A slight modification remedied that. All-in-all this is the smaller than the mighty gig rig. I was able to mount 3 class-D amps in the front and the back rail allows other effects if needed. Lots of room for the soundboard allowing additional effects and power conditioner to be loaded.

              Comments about SKB 12X8 Gig Rig Rack Case:

              If you are gigging and transporting your gear a lot, this is an excellent choice. High quality, rugged, sturdy, heavy-duty quality wheels. Moving in and out of a gig space, I stack other stuff on top of this with no problems.

              I used to use a Gator rolling rack case and separate case for the mixer. The Gators (I've owned two) lasted 2-3 years with heavy use. This case lets me keep my mixer connected to the rack gear (which speeds up setup and tear-down) and it feels like it will last a lifetime -- although I've only owned it for a month now.

              Being this heavy-duty, the rig itself (even without gear) is pretty heavy. You can see from the photos that it converts from a relatively small rolling case to a stomach-high rack/mixer stand. Basically, it is three major pieces - the rack, the rack cover and the wheeled base. When you get to the show, you unclasp the cover and remove it, unclasp the wheeled base from the rack and pop off two small covers. You then reassemble it with the wheeled base on the bottom, then clasp the cover to that (this becomes a stand to raise the height of the rack/mixer), then lift the rack and mixer and place it on top and clasp it. There is room to store the covers on the bottom. You could also assemble it without the wheeled base but I like being able to push the rig around a little while setting up and you get some extra height by leaving the wheels on. Making this conversion might require two people if your rack gear is heavy (to lift the rack portion up onto the top of the stand). I only have two amps, a DriveRackPA and a power conditioner and can lift it myself -- although it's little difficult and bulky to do it on your own.

              We mix our own sound and, during the show, I like having the mixer up where I can work with it without bending over.

              I'm extremely happy with this product.
