I purchased a set of the SKB cases 10-plus years ago and found that these cases are some of the best cases on the market. My drums are held securely and I've never had any damages, and even the time my bass drum case accidentally rolled down a flight of stairs (with my kick inside), the case (and the kick) were perfectly fine. These cases have endured thousands of miles in the band's trailer and in our van and have taken my drums to hundreds of gigs over the years. Highly recommended.
Fast forward to 2014 and the need for another snare case....I know exactly what I'm going to purchase. From the outside, the new case is identical to my old case. Same tough straps, same handle, same Roto-X molded pattern however inside the case is a different story. Every manufacturer is tasked with the challenge of decreasing costs while increasing profits, and apparently SKB decided to cut back on the amount of padding as their way to lower manufacturing costs.
The padding around the perimeter of the new case appears to be less than 1/4" thick as compared to the 1/2" thick padding of the old case. The old case securely held the snare and wouldn't allow any movement, but the new case with the thinner padding doesn't. The snare is able to roll around a bit and can bounce from side to side. I've tried all of my snares in this case and they all fit the same way.
It's somewhat disappointing that I'll have to add some extra padding with this new case, but if I want to fully protect my vintage snare, it's what I'll do. You'd think that with the prices of these cases, I wouldn't be required to do this.

I called the SKB 'warranty' line after the buckle broke... i should say called and then called and then called. I have been trying to get this resolved for weeks and can not get them to fix it. Overpriced and broke!

          i have a set of the SKB cases for my entire kit and this was the last addition. old snare case served me well, but these are rock solid- padded, really great protection, easy to carry and they stack on my other cases which is great when you load up in a van or car. going to gigs, inevitably banging into walls, stair rails, etc - , these babies protect. cases have rolled out of car, or have been dropped - they keep your babies safe & sound - i highly recommend SKB.

          Bought this to replace a soft case after I dropped a drum in the case and damaged it despite the thick outer layer. This case keeps my drum safe, and the padding inside keeps the drum in place as well as providing some extra cushion.

            I bought one for my snare, 14x6.5 I think it works great. the inside has a soft scratch protective layer that keeps your drum extra safe in the case.

                Comments about SKB Roto-X Molded Drum Case:

                I agree with DV8 Music comment that the 5.5" deep snare case fits his 6" deep snare better than it would fit a 5.5" deep snare. I got a 6.5" x 14" SKB Roto-X Molded Drum Case and it fits my 7" x 14" Tama Star Classic perfectly. When I put my 6" by 14" Tama Starphonic inside there is a little too much height, so the SKB 5.5" by 14" would be perfect for a 6" deep snare. Get this SKB case 1/2" shorter than your snare depth. It's sturdy, heavy duty and these SKB Roto-X Molded Drum Cases stack on top of each other so they are a lot less apt to slide off one another.

                  I've had many drum cases over my fifty years of playing the drums but the SKB roto X cases are by far the best quality cases I have had the pleasure to own.
