      The SKB Studio Flyer is a portable studio rack with 2U of rack space for recording gear and a top surface for laptops. The Studio Flyer offers one of the best solutions for protecting valuable gear on the road. The SKB Studio Flyer case's lift-off lid includes thick convoluted foam padding to help secure the laptop during transport.

      Cable pass through allows the laptop and rack gear to remain cabled up at all times. The fold down rack door protects the rackmount gear during transport and doubles as a work space during use. Roto molded for durability, the case features 8 adjustable cleats, in-line wheels, a pull out handle and a cushioned rubber over-molded carry handle. The reinforced nylon trigger release latching system includes a TSA locking latch that enables the traveler to safely lock the case and still have it inspected by airline security. Due to the compact size, the Studio Flyer is the perfect carry-on luggage.

      Laptop bed measures 19-3/4" x 14".

      The perfect solution for housing your portable recording studio.

      Steer Clear of This One

          Comments about SKB Studio Flyer Portable Studio Rack:

          Another "ILL CONCEIVED " product by SKB. This one is even worse that the 4U that I reviewed a while ago.
          This one has the same issue with the rack rails not set in deep enough that the 4U case has. Equipment that has protective handles or knobs that might extend a bit further out than normal simply will not allow the case to close. I was able to remove the handles on my Fractal unit to make the 4U work and I bought this case withe the same expectation so I was aware. The problem with this one is the FLIP DOWN panels....they make it very hard to use with other rack gear that you may stack this one on top of. The only way to remove them is to remove the screws and thats a bit of trouble when you are trying to get your gear off the stage fast. Maybe it wasn't intended for this sort of use and only meant for one piece which really limits it's use for most musicians.Also the same cheap plastic feet that SKB uses on ALL of their Rolling Roto cases that break off after a few uses. Steer clear of this case.

          Not a good fit for Focusrite 18i20

          Comments about SKB Studio Flyer Portable Studio Rack:

          I'm bummed out about this purchase, because it is so close to being perfect, but has what I consider a fatal flaw. The good news is that this flaw won't necessarily apply to you...

          After racking my brand new Focusrite 18i20 interface, I discovered that the front of the studio flyer doesn't close without making contact with and slightly pushing in on the knobs on the front of the interface. Ultimately I can get it shut without too much pressure on the knobs, but worry that over time this pressure will cause a short. Not to mention, any bump to the front of the unit is going to translate that energy directly to the most vulnerable parts of the equipment the studio flyer is supposed to protect, thus rendering the whole thing pointless. Back to the drawing board.

          The Focusrite may in fact stick out further than other similar interfaces; I don't know. I imagine it works fine with some other units, or else everyone would be talking about it.

          If not for the fit issue with my interface, I would surely keep it. It looks sleek, and has a cool design. You can leave everything set up and ready to go. I had a Middle Atlantic power conditioner and the Focusrite mounted, with the laptop on top with the power cable and USB routed through the holes on top of the studio flyer. So I could just pop the top off, open the front and back, plug in a single power cable, and am ready to start connecting mics and recording.

          On the whole I love the design, but just wish the rack rails were mounted about 1/4" further back in the case. I also wish the laptop compartment came with some Velcro straps to secure the laptop better during transport.
