Yikes! Now THAT’S scary!
The Pelican rifle case sounds like a fine piece of equipment, probably a sturdier piece than a typical hardshell , and more likely to survive TSA
Yes, the Pelican cases are really tough. Like falling and tumbling 10 feet down onto concrete, without breaking or popping open; probably no damage to a bass inside. They are usually water tight, not just water proof. With a 9 lb bass inside, it might even float.
Classic style hard shell cases, like the G & G cases, really don't provide much protection. There is almost no shock absorbing protection inside. And the wooden shell won't take much of a pounding. Drop it 3 feet onto concrete and it will break and pop open. The best thing about hard shell cases is that they store and stack neatly.

We just lost power as part of the wildfire prevention thing. May be shut down for two days. Aaargh. As if I didn't have enough already, keeping me from working...this is from my phone, so I won't be posting much.
Argh bummer! Just what you needed. Hang in there Bruce
Yikes! Stay safe, Bruce!
To our surprise, the power is back on. It was only off for 2 1/2 hours. We'll see if it stays on. It's still very windy and dry outside.
Well, the power has gone off again. I did get some work done in the shop this afternoon, polishing up #966's pickguard.
We will all think good thoughts for you. YCMTSU!
There is a thread here on TB with a link to a huge auction of gear from Walter Becker's estate. The catalog is 600 pages. If I did this right, here is a link to just his Ampeg gear. Three Scroll Basses among them.
