    Alright so my guitarist has this 24x16x6 flight case he uses for his pedals. It works great. However whenever I try to find one there very hard to find and then rediculouskky expensive. 200$!

    Any help?

    I think the $200 is about right, I paid about £100 for mine.

    It is, of course, something that would be fine to buy second hand, if you wish to save money.

    I've been looking for a flight case for my pedal board for the past few months as well, couldn't find anything under 100 for something around that size. That's why I started building my own case(still not finished), would you consider doing that, might be a good alternative to buying one?

    I would but no time. How much cheaper is it, using proper handles and locks. I think I'm going with this one



    Does link work? They have cheaper ones but hardware shows why on those.

    Yeah those were the same ones I'de been looking at except I was going to buy the 32" wide one. So far I've only spent around 45 dollars on the wood for the frame, but I haven't finished purchasing everything for the build, I've been busy with final exams. I will be getting the rest of the materials this weekend, and based on what I've looked around at online, it should be about 60-80 dollars in total? I'll be happy to let you know once it's done.

    Those seem like solid cases though, good choice. :)
