ROAD CASE ADVICE PLEASE!

Discussion in 'Amps [BG]' started by powermans, Jun 27, 2013.


  1. Hi Guys,
    Just picked up one of the last NEW SWR Working Pro 400 heads left here "Down Under". Would appreciate any advice on the right size / brand name / road case to suit the Mother!:help:

    ATA hard cases. Their case for pedaltrain mini or pedaltrain jr should work for your amp head.

    It's a 2U head, so any 2U rack mount case will be fine. Road Ready, SKB, Gator, Calzone, Anvil, etc.

    You definitely don't want that...

    Its a rack mountable amp. Mount it in a rack case?

    I thought those cases for mountable rack units are for multiple racks. Never seen a case for just one rack unit. That's why I offered a simple case just to carry it(which sounded a bit stupid to you, I guess:D)

    They make them in all sizes. His amp is a 2u size, so he could grab a 2u rack. Or if he wanted to add anything to the rack he could get a bigger one should he wish. The racks cases also come in different depths, so make sure you get one that is the right size.

    Every city has someone building cases for competitive prices. Contact the larger pro audio rental houses in your area and since they buy a lot of cases they'll point you to who's building them. They may even have something used to sell you as might the case manufacturer.

    I'm not a huge fan of the quality of light weight plastic racks like SKB but they are cheaper and easier to move.
     
  11. Thanks for your input gentlemen, i will start looking for a 2U size case and check the depth! That's the info I needed to know ... Thanks again.:hyper:

    Drop into Tym Guitars & Tim will sort you out with someone local. Or there is a place called Cliff Electronics near Fortitude Valley that sells the parts if you can make your own.
