I like my Hartke 3500 amp just fine the way it is. It sits perfectly on top of of my cabs and looks kinda cool. I really dont want to fiddle with it. The only problem is, carrying it around un-racked will lead, I'm pretty certain, to the demise of the amp. Even if it doesn't actually quit, it will definately get bashed to heck as time goes by. So now I have to buy a bulky, ugly, 2U rack to stick my amp in. I had originally thought of putting it in a rack bag, but I think I will opt for the hard case rack for a little more security. Wouldn't it be nice if SKB, or Hartke, or some company, made a case for an amp like this. I could just stow it in the case for transport like my bass, and pull it out when I need to plug in. Seems easy enough. Jeesh, the box the thing came in seemed pretty secure, I would think a hard case of the same dimensions would be perfect. Is there a company that makes cases like this? I'll rack her out of nescessity, but I wish there was another way.
