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!!

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.

Comments about SKB U.S. Roto Rack:

I have used a SKB U.S. Roto Rack 4U for over 5 years and I have to say they are just about bulletproof as as could be far as gear protection goes. I've had mine knocked off of a pickup truck tailgate so hard it bounced and nothing was damaged. Another time a gaffer tripped on a line out from my amp and pulled it off of my stack. Only the internal jacks were damaged when they bent while bearing the weight of the amp & case.

My only real problem with this thing (aside from it being kind of ugly as rack cases go) is that the bottom edges and corners are rounded (like the rest of the outside) and it doesn't sit well on any cabinet with raised interlocking plastic corners like the ones on all of my SWR, BagEnd or Eden cabinets. The feet on the bottom of this case are also too small to be of any use. I usually fold a towel and put it between the rack case and the cab; it's the only way to center the amp. This is the only reason I didn't give it 5 Stars.

    Comments about SKB U.S. Roto Rack:

    This thing is super heavy duty. It also sits great on top of other rack cases of the same type, which works great when stacking them in trailers. The latest version also has screw holes on both sides of the doors, so if you have some shorter items, you could technically put things on both sides.

    The clips holding the doors in place are sturdy and spring loaded, and don't appear to be breaking anytime soon.

        Useless for some equipment

        By Brian Rodgers

        from St. Louis, MO

        Comments about SKB U.S. Roto Rack:

        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.

        forget the top or bottom

        By mggotman

        Comments about SKB U.S. Roto Rack:

        This rack case is heavy duty and protects your units very well. Only problem which is a huge problem is I have the 6 space rack and i can only use 4 of the spaces. The inside has a terrible design that pushes down on the units make the top and bottom spaces completely useless. Your best bet is to go with something else.

        Comments about SKB U.S. Roto Rack:

        I originally just bought the Musicians Gear Rack Case to house my equipment just because it was cheap, but I quickly realized how un-sturdy it was. It is definitely not for a traveling/touring guitarist. I eventually just sold it and paid the difference for this case & couldn't be happier with it. I got the 6U first, to improve the tone of my amp, but eventually got another 4U & went ahead and got a pre & power amp to use it as a full system as well!! The stackability of these things are near perfect, and while stacked, you really can't even tell that it's 2 different units if you're not paying close attn. And the molded handles on the side are FAR more superior to the bolted on handles of the Musicians Gear case. By far, a great purchase, & the sturdiest case I've seen. I would highly recommend one for any touring guitarists.
