    I dont think you are supposed to rackmount the 900 because the little black thing it sits in is the rack. At least thats what it looks like to me.

    I've never seen an Ashdown(in person), but I do own the Behringer head, which I understand is a copy of that. What I'm doing is taking it out of the black case and then mounting it onto a rack shelf and then putting it in the rack. The Behringer takes up 2 spaces, so I'm guessing the Ashdown would too.

    well ive got a 900. and im trying to figure a way. i also thought the black thing would be the "case" but it doesnt do much good protecting the knobs and stuff. and i think the 900 is to big for a regular rack. and i dont think they make racks that are as wide as the 900. might have to just choke and forget about it.

    Yeah, maybe. I wish I could be of more help, but I'm not familiar with those. Have you thought about building your own rack? You could make it to any dimentions you need. http://www.lookingforbuyers.com/free/rackcase.htm

    That site has plans for a case. You might want to check that out if you don't come up with anything else. Good luck. -Brad

    i dont think they make rack ears for ashdown stuff. im not sure. ive never taken the thing out of the black case. i knwo how but im afraid ill never get it back in.

    ill look into that custom rack if i cant find a suitable one.
     
  8. Instead of a rack why not get a padded cover made up about £25.00 , not the vinyl Ashdown one but a custom one that slips on from the top. This will protect it and stop the knobs from being knocked.
