CNB Rack Cases

    Their nice little 16 lb, 6-space, unit appears to be a good deal to me at $80 especially compared to an SKB.


    Is there something I'm missing here???

    Thanks for any expertise!
  2. I recently bought a CNB case.
    A little different then the SKB.
    Good construction quality.
    Less the half the SKB price.

    Thanks, Donne!

    I've seen the SKB's getting dissed here so often.

    The CNB's just seem almost too good for the price, so I had to ask.

    I've got a CNB too. A plastic one, not metal like in your pic. I also own an SKB. CNBs are made of a slightly harder plastic than SKB. If I attacked them with a hammer, I would be able to break through the CNB a little sooner than the SKB. I'd buy another CNB before I'd buy another SKB. The SKB Roto line sucks, their other lines are high quality but are too expensive.

    I'd appreciate it if you all could tell me where you got your CNB's.

    The only place I can find one is Rondo music.

    The price, $80 for a 6 space, seems great. But when I looked at the cost with shipping the price jumps to $140!!!!

    Who are they using to ship this stuff.....Brinks Armored Security??? Or is Rondo Music's real name "sucker.com"?????

    That's got to be a mistake on their site. Email Kurt and ask him. I have never been suckered by them.

    Thank you much, jon. It just sounded too screwy.

    In the past two weeks, I've UPS'd a 100 lb amp and two boards of wood......and I knew something either wasn't right or they were hiding some of the price in the shipping.

    I'll definitely take your advice. Hope I can return the favor sometime.

    Rick, that has got to be a typo.

    I just priced the 8 space model, and shipping to the western USA(UPS) is $19.00
