    Well, it seems I can no longer acquire a rackmount for my GB Shuttle 9.0. I'm looking for any ideas/pics that other users have come up with to mount this amp in a rack case (Gator, SKB).

    Any genius ideas out there?

    Yes, same kit! Looking to sell it? I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Any pics?

    I bought a slotted rack shelf, a camping strap with quick release, and cinched my 9.0 to the shelf in a 4 space rack. I didn't want to use the whole 2 spaces for the amp, needed the extra space for a pre for my upright, sliding shelf with pedals took up the lower 2 spaces. Amp barely moved but I was pretty careful when transporting.

    I have a couple of these rack panels too, if anyone is looking for them.

    I refused to pay ~$30 for two pieces of bent metal to mount my Shuttlemax, so built a smaller-than-rack-sized case for it.

    I bent four of these to use as ears:

    1) Ebay
    2) Craigslist (national search)
    3) Build one

    Not everything has to be bought new in a store.

    Anyone on here happen to have a rack mount kit for the Shuttle 9.2?

    I think I have the rack ears for a 9.2. Also had mine in a small SKB with a Furman. Pretty convenient, but now I just carry the amp in a bag and set in on my cab.
