    Need a source for a 3 space rack bag, at least 12" deep.

    Very nice ones made by Pro-Tec International.I just got a 2-space.
    ...look for their website, or call your local dealer-
    Now that I think of it, Sam Ash had a 3-space soft rack on sale for $49.00......

    Hey Brad, I've got two of the ProTec bags. I think that they've got the market cornered on this market. Much more stout than the Kaces version. I prefer the ProTec zipper to the velcro on the Kaces also. American Musical Supply also carries them.

    Thanks, Jerry. Do the front and rear covers fully remove?

    I'm debating whether to go with a rack bag or something like an SKB rack case for my amp. I need at least 12" depth.

    No they zip on three sides and flop under the bottom, both bac and front. I'm thinking that they are around 13.5" to 14" deep.

    I find that the rack bags are more "organic" than the ice chest look of plastic and aluminum. :confused:

    I agree. I may just keep the rack I have. It's pretty non-descript but it works.

    I have a ProTec three space rack bag, I have my QSC PLX1602 in it. The rack is just the right depth for the PLX, enough room in the back to leave cords.

    It's well made and all that, and fairly light at 9 lbs, but it's kind of bulky. Quite a bit bigger than I was expecting (I bought it from AMS without seeing one in the flesh).

    Found a Rok Sak bag that's a perfect fit, used at Atomic Music. I was trying to keep the size down because it's going to sit on top of some very small EA VL-110 cabs.

    Thanks for the help.

    Just another option to make life more confusing. My Aguilar 3 space bag, custom for the 359 was made by the Modern Case Company. www.moderncase.com They make all kinds of soft and hard bags and racks. Nice quality.

    Sure. I found this one (Rok Sak 4 space) used for $35. Then I found them on the web for $52.95. I may just get a new one but this one is in good condition. It would be nice if they didn't make the carry handles quite as long as they do. Otherwise it's cool.
