This rack is really poorly made and poorly designed. First, the finishing is not very good. Some racks I saw in the store had small holes in them where the plastic didn't fill in during molding. They all have rough edges and generally do not look that great up close. Admittedly, a rack's job is to take abuse, and it'll get scuffed up and rough looking even if it's perfect new. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't be perfect new. But that's just cosmetic. Functionally and design wise, it's a disaster. There is a lip around the rack opening on each side, and a groove in the lid. All well and good, should provide some minor protection against water and dirt getting in (there's no O-ring though). The problem is that the inner wall of the groove in the lid comes in too far. It overlaps the rack gear. If the rack gear has a thicker faceplate, such as the Line 6 Relay G90 wireless receiver, the lid does not fit on. Or, if you like to put washers between the rack rail and the gear to protect both sides, any gear is now too thick. Now, if the gear has a thin enough faceplate and you don't want to use inner washers, you might not notice it, and maybe you're OK with it. HOWEVER, even then, the lid is rubbing up against the face of your rack ears. You can tell because the latches are harder to close with gear in than when it's empty. There should be no difference if it isn't pressing up against the gear. You could carve out the lid, but you shouldn't need to. The rack is at a fabulous price, and I'd overlook the cosmetic flaws for that. And if you have the right gear and don't mind the lid rubbing up against the edges of your gear, maybe it's fine. But for a lot of gear, it's simply a flawed design that does not qualify as a functioning rack case.
Bought this to rack a Digi 003+. Tolerance on the width of the rack rails is poor, meaning that if I had installed the fasteners, I would have chewed up the faceplate of the Digi unit. 2nd, with the Digi unit in place, the cover would not fit, because of the lip. I have another SKB rack with the aluminum surround and clip ons that works fine for the raised faceplate digi units...so I can only conclude that SKB ignored various rack specs. In addition, the retainer clips were riveted off kilter...this passed inspection?? Like my SKB Xrack; but cannot recommend the Roto Rack.
I have been an avid fan of SKB rack and gig cases for years. This last purchase of a 6 space rack case has totally turned me off to their products. I purchased it to house 8 wireless mics and a Furman power unit. To start, the molded portion of the case was terrible cosmetically; gouges and voids in the molding itself looked horrible and there was excess plastic material everywhere. Secondly, both the front and back lid hardware was lightweight and has been cheapened. Finally, again on the lids; the plastic was so warped that the flimsy latches could not even keep the lids on. Every time I picked up the case, they fell off. I ended up using the case in a permanent installation (without the lids). Although it looks horrible, it is the only thing it is good for. I went right out and replaced it with a TKL (which I have never owned) and it is great. I also have a few Gator cases I have purchased in the past and they are well made. Hope these two brands don't go the way of SKB.
I like to have my equipment safely stored. I herd alot of good things about SKB and thier products so I had planned on getting one. While at Guitar Center one day shopping for another cab i came accross one. And both products where on sail so i said "hook me up." It came brand new and let me tell youo. It might as well be made of steel! It feels like plastic but you can tell that it had at least 10X the strength. I would feel safe dropping it of the side of a building with my amp inside. Of course im not going to test my luck with that but this thing is the real deal.
SKB is the standard in cases for guitars and rack equipment, and that is why I purchased it. The very first day I used it for a show, while unloading the van, my SKB Rack case fell out and hit the corner of the curb. I almost lost my mind, but when I got everything set up on stage and played, no problems at all.. Thank you Guitar Center and SKB for the best equipment in the world!!
