            I've been touring with this rack case for going on ten years and have had zero problems!. I keep an Ashdown ABM500 bass head and a Korg rack-mount DTR-2000 tuner in it. The amp head is pretty heavy, and the rack holds it just fine.

            A little pricey, sure, but you'll definitely get your money's worth!

            These racks were a great deal once upon a time, but they've gotten expensive enough that I don't feel they're a good value. I own several of them and have found them to be deficient in a couple of key areas. I was surprised to find that they're not even remotely water-resistant - despite the rubber O-ring seals around the lids. I didn't expect it to be waterPROOF, but you'd think the rack could keep out some brief indirect light rain.The latches fatigue easily and the lids start falling off when you pick up the rack. A little re-bending of the portion of the latch on the rack itself will solve the problem, but it's a nuisance (and risky) without the right tools.Despite the ATA claims, they're really not suited for road warrior use or air freight as they're too fragile for that. They bend and they break far too easily.They're just fine for limited duty use by careful owners and that's about it.

                      Comments about SKB 4-Space ATA Rack Case:

                      I used to be a mobile DJ and used my 4 space ATA rack to keep my Tascam cassette deck permenantly mounted (and protected). It did the job very well the whole time I used it. I've had my rack since about 1997 and just recently sold it, as I don't have need for it anymore. After years of road use, it still looked good and I got top dollar for it! And yes... I would buy an SKC Rack again.

                      I've owned several SKB rack cases, and I love the models that don't have threaded rails that you can strip. The "clip" design is fantastic! Tough and durable! You can't go wrong.

                      Awesome is pretty much the only word that describes this case. I am still planning on filling it up, but it is a very sturdy case. Very easy to use too. Alls you have to do is take the rail clips and slip them over the rail holes. The only problem that I've come across is that they didn't give me enough hardware. I ran out of rail clips but you can always buy more. SKB cases are deffiantly more than just quality

                      Not as Tough as It Looks

                      Comments about SKB 4-Space ATA Rack Case:

                      The things look tough enough, and are good for hauling around rack-mounted stuff. However, placing a heavy amp head on one will slightly crush it. One of mine has a dip in it still from an HD 147 head sitting on it for a day. Another one of these cases sunk in a bit with a small 4-channel Behringer mixer sitting on it. Heat from any gear seems to melt them.

                      Everything you would want in a rack case. I have a DAT recorder and a preamp mounted in mine and I haul it around for live recordings. Great quality, worth every penny. Lifetime warranty is awesome, also.
