I have owned this rack for over 2 years. It is very sturdy, yet light weight. It keeps my gear safe and sound and saves my back due to the great wheels it has for rolling it around. Unlike other racks I have owned, it has a sturdy, reinforced collapsable handle that has a reinforcing panel that makes it very heavy duty. I definitely recommend this product to any serious gigging musicians.

This is basically a good case. It offers nice protection and the wheels are great. Moving the case around from car to stage is quite easy with the wheels and handle. The wheels are of a durable material (similar to roller blade wheels) so shouldn't tear up on you like some wheels do. My only real issue with this case is the design of the bottom. The wheels make it sit on your rig higher on one side and sometimes cause the unit to shift around with the potential for sliding off your rig and crashing on the floor. NOT a good situation so I am looking for an alternative case for my rack.

      Nice Rack for a fair price. I'm no longer a spring chicken and it so handy to ahve this case rolls like a carry-on bag. Units fit well, enough room for cord storage without unplugging everything.

      Comments about SKB Roto Rolling Rack Case:

      I ordered this case without putting my hands on one, my mistake. I have a Mackie mixer in a Roto mixer case with the intentions of stacking on another case for effects, and eqs. They do not line up at all. The mixer case slides around the top of the other case like a drunken prom date. If you put the top on the mixer case they stack for storage- but for stage use they do not- I repeat - do not line up. I will need a rubber pad/ bungee cords or something to avoid a catastrophic mixer fall. Boo SKB boo.
      The good. Built well and looks great. Wheels functional and lays flat.

          Comments about SKB Roto Rolling Rack Case:

          It's a good product overall. The latches haven't unlatched do to weight or force applied to them (this was a problem for me with the normal style of latch on most molded cases). So far no real cons but one quirk is the covers from one case don't necessarily match with another. And my only real area of concern is their ability to shift a little while stacked. I may try a rubber mat between to prevent movement. Otherwise they are very slick (style and touch) and are an improvement from my previous setup plus won't be as heavy as a wood built rackmount case.

          Comments about SKB Roto Rolling Rack Case:

          I am a bass player and a sound engineer. So I can use these in many situations for amps, effects, even video equipment. I also work as technician for a reputable dj service so sound and light equipment gets used well in these. Cases stack and lock in place very well. Wheels and handles make for easy transport. Handles have been upgraded. The front and back covers are held in place with flight approved TSA latches. Both covers are molded with large o ring in place to make it waterproof, no metal grooves to line up. SKB has outdone themselves on this. You can't get a better rack case!

          Comments about SKB Roto Rolling Rack Case:

          If I was moving around with my gear a lot, this would probably be great. It is very very bulky, a little too much so for my purposes. However, it seems well-built, the latches are secure, and the wheels roll well. The covers do not seal as well as I would like but they are not flimsy or loose.

            I was looking to 'down-size' my sound equiptment with my previous Gig Rig as a start. My old Gig Rig is excellent with protecting my amps however, the thing weighed too much and I looked through Musicians Friend.com looking for an alternative. Something that would offer the same protection but more compact and the Roto Rolling Rack fit the bill. Now with the Roto Rolling Rack it takes up about half the room that my older Gig Rig and that is substantial since I transport my equipment on a smaller SUV. Great protection, smaller package, easier to transport, everything I was looking for.

              Comments about SKB Roto Rolling Rack Case:

              I have 2 of these units - a 4U and a 6U. I was looking for a way to make my system smaller and easier to transport since I aint getting any younger. I was afraid the 6U unit was going to be too bulky, but not so. I use each of them to store one power amp and other outboard gear and this seems to be a good combination. They are fairly sturdy, but if you loaded up the 6U full of heavy power amps that might be too much weight for the long term. They work well but they are not as sturdy as flight cases, but of course they are lighter. They serve my purpose well for several gigs a month at smaller venues. I would buy these again.

                I am using this rack as a bass amp case, storing amps, a rackmount tuner, and rackmount power conditioner in it. It is very sturdy, and, while the case will flex a little, it seems like it is a bend-but-don't-break function. The wheels and telescoping handle really make this case stand out to me. While the handle isn't the most rugged, it does do a great job of transporting the case, although not much else. All in all, it is a great rackmount case!
