The back lid provides maximum access to your rackmounted audio equipment and DJ gear. Two TSA locking, SKB-patented trigger latches secure the lid while the flat hardtop allows for stacking in transport and in storage.

The new hard shell top is a definite improvement over the soft cover top. The front "door" is hinged to the top. The back door has slots in the case for added solidity. Latches are solid and firm and can be locked for transport, but airport security can unlock them with their own TSA encoded keys, cool. Comes with screws to anchor in your equipment. One curious note: the top rail ends about 4 inches from the back side of the box. Would have been nice to extend that further, then again it would be a 14 top, 6 bottom, duh. Great case. Just wish it was available in a wheeled version. Load this up and it's heavy.

Most racks you will find are HEAVY. I looked everywhere for something different. I finally decided on this rack because of its weight. It is only 24 pounds! That is half the weight of some racks the same size. I have loaded up this rack with a mixer and many extras including a very heavy amplifier so light weight is key. I did end up putting a couple of little shims underneath the amp to take some of the pressure off of the front because I could tell the plastic was actually bending at the weight.

When I received it I found that it was larger than I thought it was going to be. The rack is very deep so it is not the greatest when you're plugging in cords every gig.

Finally, I am quite gentle with my gear. If you were throwing this thing in and out of vans and stages each week I could see something colliding with the rack and breaking it. It's not as sturdy as the wood cases with twice the weight. So decide if you want to eventually break the shell or break your back! Due to the plastic it can also get scratched up quite easily.

Overall I am happy with it. I wish it was sturdier but for my purposes it's what I needed.

      Awesome Investment

      By Justin Pitlik

      Comments about SKB Roto Rack Console - Audio and DJ Rack Case:

      This Audio and DJ Rack Case was absolutely worth every penny. Not only does it protect my gear, but it looks professional, and hides the over-abundance of cables, ext. cords, etc. I recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade and go more professional.

      Comments about SKB Roto Rack Console - Audio and DJ Rack Case:

      It?s a very light case (lighter than a flight case), but sturdy enough to hold tight all your equipment, I carry on it two Denon dual CD players and a Pioner DJM-5000 and it fits perfectly with all cables hidden on it, because I have some free space inside the box I can carry an outlet box attached with Velcro and a pair of headphones, I totally recommend this unit.

      Great case for any mobile DJ.

      Comments about SKB Roto Rack Console - Audio and DJ Rack Case:

      Overall, I like this case adn would highly recommend to others.
      This case has it all... its light, totally sealed when closed to keep out dust and weather, full 19" rack support into metal rack rails. Great space on top and below for additional equipment. There is a 1U space unused at the top of the rack - perfect for wires in/out and venting heat from inside the case. When the option shelf is installed, it completely folds up and into case for transport. Excellent.
      You can tell by looking at this case that it was constructed with the utmost case and the strictest ot quality standards.
      I've see other cases but I believe the value this case gives you greatly out weighs all others. You won't be disappointed.

      Comments about SKB Roto Rack Console - Audio and DJ Rack Case:

      I did call SKB about my problems and they would have helped. Which meant sending stuff directly back to them and they would fix or replace. I simply dont have time for all that. I would have liked them to send me out a new hinge and I would have put in on correctly, but they could not do that. I am pretty crafty and was able to fix the problems my self. For the lid, I just drilled little holes along the outside of the crack and used zip ties. The case now has character and looks like it has stiches. Old trick I learned for the quad runners fenders and stuff when you wreck and need to put things back together real fast. For most I think SKB would be great in helping if you have time for all that. When I order stuff it is usually because I need it now, not later. I think I will continue to use the likes of Gator cases and maybe some others. Done with SKB.
      With the addition of the shelf, which has to be ordered seperately it is a great idea. Lightweight and I can cram my whole rig in here.
      Not to happy here. SKB used to be practically bullet proof. Not so much any more. The bottom half which is most important is constucted pretty good, but the lid is crap and broke easily. Cheap plastic. The lid is a pretty important part since usually damage occurs to your gear while transporting. They should have used better quality material. If they wanted to make things right they should make a better lid available for replacement. Also, I think there quality control must suck. I have purchased 4 different SKB products in the last year and am only happy with 1. Which is the SKB Studio Flyer 2U. The rest have hardware such as hinges and latches mounted incorrectly.
      Idea is great but the quality of there product now is just hindered.

        Addition to my previous review:
        I still feel There are a couple of weak points to the design, however, I received a new back lid to replace my damaged one from SKB. I actually received it two days befor getting a response from Musicians Friend. Thanks for the service, I hope the case lasts as I will treat the weak areas very gently!

          Comments about SKB Roto Rack Console - Audio and DJ Rack Case:

          The latches on the back panel door are plastic and very thin and poorly designed. One of them arrived broken and I found the broken plastic piece but it was so small that I did not realize what the piece went to and thought it might be a piece from a runner in the molding process. Once I racked up my gear and did all my cable management I found the broken latch on the back lid. I will most likely end up making my own latch out of metal to replace this.
