A work in progress�ۡ��_.but so far so good.

By Rob

from New York, NY

I'm being asked if I'd like to write a review, so here goes: The short review: I liked this bass case enough to cautiously buy a second one. The long review: First off, I've had a number of ATA rated cases for my basses, and while they've protected my instruments very well throughout the years, the one huge complaint I have about them is that, by being virtually indestructible, they are wayyyy too heavy. So heavy that it keeps me from using them when I should. Because flying can be so unpredictable with whether you can get your bass on the plane or not, I've often run the very heavy risk of bringing it to the gig and/or tour in a gig bag. The surefire way to feel safe about flying with your bass and its safety is to carry it on?.actually, sneak it on is more accurate. I've employed a whole series of techniques to bring it board even though I've been stopped many a time with the ubiquitous "you'll have to check that, no exceptions?". I've managed to sneak it on almost every time in that situation, but there have been the occasional heart stopping "sir, you can't bring that on board. You'll have to gate check it?" At that point, handing over my 68 P-bass to be stored somewhere with the baby strollers can be nerve wracking, to say the least. The solution to this dilemma is to case it in something solid. Even then, there are no guarantees to its safety, but you're moving in the right direction. (BTW, you all are insured, right? you'd better be insured?.its way too cheap to not insure your instrument?) Based on a friend's suggestion, I got this case as the replacement to my heavy flight case. It is so much lighter, and cannot express how happy it makes me. And it has wheels, for the airport. Its no smaller or bigger than the other styles, so thats a wash. Also, the interior has plenty of room for cables and strings and a pedal or two. It has other elements that seem cool, like the comfortable handle, which may or may not last, so who knows there. All handles break eventually. And it claims to be water proof, but I won't know how that goes until it really rains. The big question is whether or not its sturdy enough to call itself equal to other flight cases, and/or the real Pelican case. The wall of the SKB case gives a little when you lean on it, but not much. The comparable Pelican bass case I looked at has a couple more bands of plastic reinforcements to keep that phenomena from happening, but it may not matter. Or maybe it will. Who knows. I've had one SKB case for 3 months, and so far I've liked it enough to get a second for another bass. It's been awesome on the weight issue, and as far as protecting the instrument, it seems really cool, but I'm still in the wait-and-see mode. Today, I give it and optimistic 4 stars. In a year or two, if it takes a few hits and survives, I will enthusiastically update my rating to 5 stars. If however it takes a hit and something doesn't survive, I will come back here and drop the rating significantly. Hope this review helps?...Good luck touring!

Indestructible, but SO HEAVY!

By Lisa Lightning

from Chicago IL

This case could be dropped from an airplane and not be damaged. It is indestructible and wheels work nice, so I gave it 5 stars. However, I did not realize until it shipped to me how HEAVY it is. Weighs nearly 20 pounds! I think 18 to be precise. Though I loved the wheels, I returned it and bought SKB's much lighter, non-wheeled case. I live on 2nd floor and just carrying the case with my Fender inside down the stairs was a nightmare. Don't know why it has to weigh so much... But if weight doesn't bother you, go for it.
