This thing is awesome compared to my old flimsy Walmart style Golf case I was using to haul my drum hardware around. Im In a band that plays alot of shows and Its nice to find an affordable Hardcase that can accommodate my bulky hardware. I really enjoy how easy it is now to tear up and tear down at shows. the locks are a pretty touch, the wheel's on the bottom and handle grip are a nice touch too. all in all the price for this durable case is well worth it. I couldn't be any happier with it.

Compared to a traditional coffin case on a dolly, this odd duck offers few advantages besides it's extended length (which allows stands to be loaded without breakdown), reasonable price point and compact upright storage. As discussed, poor design requires upside down loading of heavy drum stands and bungee cords to bundle them so the lid fits. Better suited for lighter microphone tripods and it also makes a great multiple long gun carrier for the range! But, for heavy drum stands, it's awkward when fully loaded and the wheels are very small making it unstable for long runs and carpet. If like me, you just want to lighten the load in your trap case, and leave stands extended rather than breaking them down it's okay, but your road crew is going to grumble. It works, but has disadvantages. You get what you pay for.

SKB Freedom Stand Transport Case VS SKB Trap Case

By Richard Harris

from Grove, OK

Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

I looked at both of these cases and chose the Freedom stand case for these 3 reasons: 1. I love the idea of not having to break down all my cymbal stands (except for the arms/booms)and High Hat Stand. 2. Looked easy to load. 3. Money??? The freedom case is half the price of the Trap case! When I got the Freedom case and used it, it was everything I thought it would be and yes, (like I read in another review) once you have all your stands in the case, wrap them tight with a bungee cord. This will prevent the lid from getting hung up on one of your stands. I placed a monitor stand, High Hat Stand (without removing the rod) and 6 boom stands in this case and IT IS HEAVY! The case is very sturdy and is easy to maneuver with the wheels. I diffidently recommend this case. -Richard

      A small bungee, a little shake= Golden. I may try a little judicious trimming to the inside lip of the lid also.

        Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

        You will love this case. Yes, you will have the occasional wing nut that will snag the lid when you try to put it on. All you have to do is wiggle the case a little and it goes right on (The bungee idea that another reviewer used was pretty sweet.). All I have to do is fold in the tripods and booms and put them in the case. You don't have to tear your stands down all of the way because the case is so tall. A lot of cases on the market can't even accommodate a hi-hat stand without removing ,or bending :-(, the pull rod. And as for those other "touring" drummers that tell you to buy a custom case that probably costs more than your hardware, I have a couple of simple solutions to prevent damage on those long rides. 1.) If space allows, load the case in an upright position. Or 2.) Load your hardware more towards the middle or front of the vehicle as possible. That area of a vehicle doesn't bounce as much as the back.
        And yes, it is a great case for storing golf clubs too.

            here's the trick to using the skb freedom case. instead of trying to put your stands fitting into the bottom of the case with the wheels, just load all your stands into the top part of the case (upside down). then all you do is slide the bottom part and it fits without having to jiggle the case around. i can fit 2- snare stands, 1-hi-hat stand, 2- cymbal stands, cymbal and cowbell holders and floor tom legs in mine. i've been using this case for 7 years.

            from Etters, Pa.

            Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

            This case works great for holding and transporting my mic, music, guitar and monitor stands. And the fact that you can load and unload it vertically is a back saver, as are the wheels. My only complaint is, when moving it around in the latched position, the latches would come loose because it didn't lock tight enough. I pinched the locking lip, on eaqch side, closed a little tighter and now it stays latched. My decision to purchase this was partly on price but mostly on ease of loading and unloading. (at 61 my back get sore a lot easier. lol)

            Good Sturdy Case

            By Doug Clark

            from York, PA

            Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

            The case is nice and sturdy. I use it for my cymbal stands and there is plenty of room to put collapsed stands in there. The lid fits perfectly. The only two minor gripes I have would be concerning the clasps and the handle. The clasps are very tight and hard to open and close. You also have to be careful when opening and closing as you can easily pinch your finger. The handle on the top of the case isn't really a handle as much as just a place to hold onto the case. A little more thought could have been put into that. That being said, I wouldn't let that deter you from buying the case. It holds a lot of gear, and the wheels seem very sturdy and it's easy to roll when moving the case. There is a nice handle on the side of the case for when you need to pick it up and put it in your vehicle. Over all, I'd give it a 9 out of 10 stars.
            Got it on sale. Good discount. Still think they are way overpriced.

            The reviews on this case are correct!

            By Carl Cickavage

            from Cleveland OH

            Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

            This is my first review on anything ever. Trust the other reviews. They are correct. The case shipped on time and arrived in perfect condition. This case holds all my stands, long and short. I do want to note that the top part of the case goes inside the bottom part. The review that suggested a short bungee cord around the stands to keep them centered in the case worked great and I had no trouble getting the top on. I also use a bungee around my high hat pedal to secure it from flopping around. The bottom portion stands up on its own so no more bending over to load the stands. This is really great. The stands also do not need to be shortened to their lowest position because the case is so tall. This is a valuable timesaver. The case works like a two-wheeled dolly and the centered handle on the side makes it easy to get it into our trailer. I have used soft cases in the past and they are OK for the price but both of mine tore and the zippers broke after years of on the road use. This case will last me for years because of its simple and effective design. I am satisfied with my purchase and recommend this case if you are a gigging drummer.
            Good large hardshell case with secure latches, carry handle for lifting, top handle for dolly use and good wheels.
            SKB is quality.
            Most inexpensive case I could find that still gets the job done from a brand name that I can trust.

            This is a golf bag case

            By Tyler Baker

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

            SKB is great, but this isn't what you're looking for.
            I've owned this product for 7 years or so and have disliked from the moment I got it. It's not designed for drum hardware. It's for golf bags. My guess is they realized they could squeeze this into a wider market and went for it. The lip on the top section made closing the case almost impossible when full of stands. After a little self-modification, it still sometimes gives me trouble. I've had to completely empty it and reload it keeping bolts, feet, and corners pointed toward the middle.

            SKB makes great products. This is a great GOLF BAG case. The latches and wheels are still in great condition after years of heavy use. However, if you're looking for a drum hardware case, look elsewhere.

            Heavy duty, but a pain.

            By David C.

            from California

            Comments about SKB-R4913S Freedom Stand Transport Case:

            Using this product on the road is a waste of time. When you're done with a show, you don't want to spend a bunch of time trying to intricately arrange stands just so the lid will slide down properly. While it's rugged, it's too rough on the inside for me. No paddng = damage to gear. Great for a rugged storage unit when you're off the road or finishing up in the studio - not a great solution for touring.
            It's big enough to hold most of your drum stands or mic stands. It's quite sturdy, so you don't have to worry too much about it falling apart. The main issue is (like many have said before) the top half slides almost a foot INTO the bottom half. This was a stupid decision by the manufacturer; this will cause the lid to get caught by parts of your stand, and you'll have to constantly rearrange your stands so the top half will fit and lock into place. Bad design flaw. Even with a small amount of stands, you'll still get hung up if a stand leans the wrong way.
            Heavy duty, yes. Only downside is it's quite tough on the inside as well - no padding. So, while this is quite sturdy, I wouldn't use it on bumpy rides unless your stands are heavy duty.
            It's quite rugged, but difficult and incovenient. I wouldn't reccomend this for anything but basic storage, and this is too expensive for a basic storage unit (in my opinion.) Look elsewhere or get a custom built case if you're taking your gear on tour.
