    Hey, I just bought a GK 800RB head, and now I want to get some sort of a protective carrying case (not interested in racks though). It doesnt have to be ahard case, just something to absorb shock if i drop it so it doesnt go directly to the head.
    I have a gig bag for my bass that has cords and such, but I wanted to be able to put my distortion and tuner pedal, my 21ft monster cable, and patch cables and power cable.

    would you guys have any ideas in mind?

    Might try a "Gator" brand mini keyboard bag (a lot of guys swear by them and they are cheap) ...

    I use a Samsonite luggage tote for my GK 1001RB, it acts as a complete gig bag all of my cords, mics, pedals everything it has a hard plastic lining too and hey it rolls.

    :smug: ... SKB makes some nice stuff too ... pretty light weight.

    Don't know if you consider a soft rack bag to be a rack, but I've got my head in a Gator 2-space rack bag and like it a lot. I don't even have to unplug the power and speaker cords, and a fairly big pocket holds everything else nicely.

    I keep mine on my neck.;)

    SKB for local gigs

    Anvil shock for tour gigs (too heavy for local stuff, but more durable)

    Gator rack bag.

    I really like it, but my stuff lands in my car. If it was going into a trailer or truck, then I'd be all over ATA accepted shock reducing rack.

    Rack requirements are twofold; maintaining cosmetics and reducing the need for maintenance. If equipment isn't subject to rough handling, save the weight and go for a bag. Bags also provide some handy advantages; pockets and shoulder straps.

    One other little suggestion - use washers when you rack mount, they'll save the cosmetics of the equipment. It can matter at resale.
