      OVERVIEW

      A 1U softshell case primarily designed for wireless mic systems or small gear like preamps and effects.

      Primarily designed for wireless microphone systems, the 1U Audio Soft Rack Case from SKB is constructed of a wood core covered by 600 Denier nylon. The 1U rack case could also be used for preamps, effects, and other small equipment. This softshell case has been developed with a focus on portability and includes an adjustable shoulder strap and loop handle for easy transport. The 14.8" depth (front rail to back flap) provides plenty of room for the most popular wireless systems. The padded front and back lid has heavy-duty zippers that allow for the flaps to open fully, then fold underneath. A zippered pouch on the inside, front flap provides excellent storage of wireless mic antennae. The SKB rack case's ample-sized exterior zippered pouch is ideal for cables and/or body packs. Threaded, steel rack rails are recessed to provide protection for equipment controls without inhibiting proper antennae placement.

      Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

      This bag is doing what I need it to do, but the very first day I carried it, the shoulder strap broke. I usually carry lots of things, so a shoulder strap is important in order for me to free up my hands. I like how I can set it up and plug in.

      Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

      This appears to be the only affordable single rack case on the market. It is more than enough protection. They market this case for wireless mic applications. I'm using it for a wireless IEM transmitter. For either of these purposes the case is about four times larger than necessary. Single space 1/2 rack would be more appropriate and I couldn't find one anywhere. While this is a nice enough case and is protective it has also increased the bulk and weight of my "carry on" substantially.

      Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

      I bought this for my newest wireless IEM system. It was the only single rack space case I could find. It is advertised for smalles, wireless units and I am wondering why it is 14" deep which is about twice what anyone would need. I would also like to see a case for 1/2 rack units. Not a big deal to me, but the picture is backwards from the one I received and has the handles on the right side of the bag when it is laying down in operating mode.

        Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

        This arrived with a loose rack rail, so I'll have to have Musicians Friend take it back. I've read about this same problem in other reviews of this model. Also, its not a practical case to put any equipment in it that generates even a small amount of heat, as the top of the equipment would be right against the fabric of the unit. It seems to be for wireless units and little else.
        Their 2-space version of this same rack looks better and gets better reviews, and it appears to give a little breathing room for the equipment. so I'll probably get that one instead.

            Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

            I bought this for my Behringer MIC2200 preamp that I use to mike congas/other percussion. It is quite a bit deeper than necessary for that, but has a nice side benafit of the zipper pocket being large enough to store the rings for the conga stands, with room left over for mic, chords, a tambourine, shakers, claves, etc. One less bag I need to carry now.

            Very good bag...

            Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

            I wish two depths were offerred; this one is a little to deep for my rack device. The only other thing I would change is that when the bag is lying flat on on a table, the front and back flaps unzip and fold down. I would prefer that they fold up and back on top toward the pocket. Folding down leaves them a little in the way, unless the bag is on the edge of the table. One of the best features, IMHO, is that the rack rails are recessed such that knobs, dials, etc., are nicely protected.
            Made of quality materials....

            Really Great Case!

            By Michael Rymell

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case:

            I work for a Conference center/ production/ rental "company" at a University. We employ students who often know very little about sound and don't always respect equipment thats not theirs, especially if we let a student group borrow equipment, so we purchased the SKB 1U Audio Soft Rack Case to take care of our Shure SLX kits. The SKB cases are super portable, very tough, and have enough room to hold all of the mics, accesories, and cables that we may need. The biggest downside that we found was the depth of the rack combined with the 1U height makes it extremely difficult to plug in the power or mic cables once the wireless kits were installed. Easiest workaround is to just leave your power and mic cables hooked up all of the time and store the slack in the ample room behind the recievers. Also keep in mind that if this is used for wireless kits you will have to use front mount antennas and remove them everytime you pack up. As far as durability goes our case has been dropped, squished into a mic stand trunk, cramed between seats in the work van, etc., and still looks/functions great. All of the equipment inside the case is protected the way it should be and still works as good as the day we bought it!
