    I know it sound kind of stupid, but I like a nice clean look to my rig, and my 2 space skb case holding my SWR WorkingPro 700 just looks kind of silly to me sitting on my Avatar B410 Neo. I was hoping Avatar made racks to fit their cabinets, but they don't. Does anybody know of a rack that fits cleanly on top of a 410 cab? It can be black carpeted, or whatever, it doesn't matter. I'd prefer something in a 4 space rack.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Check my sig for a pic of my rig to see what I mean.

    anybody?
     
  3. I would suppose that a "shockproof" anvil type case would fill out the top, since they are a little wider than normal. try eek-bay
     
  4. I had an 8U SKB shockmount case that was almost the same size as my peavey 410, same width, a little deeper but not as tall (just)

    Yeah, I meant I am just trying to fill out the top. Thanks.

    You could build it yourself...

    Everything you need parts wise (except the wood) is available from Parts Express.

    Tell us how wide/deep, you want. Shock racks are huge: A Mesa road ready shock rack is 24 inchs wide x 18.5 deep.

    I have a black carpeted Grundorf that matches my Eden 210XLTs perfectly. It is the same width and even has slightly scaled down versions of the same black plastic corners.
     
  12. IMO it looks fine as it is!! I think its not worth doing, you've got a good case to protect you're head already. A larger rack case would make it harder to carry, fit in car etc. Plus ur just going to have extra spare on the sides of your rackcase, which would look unbalanced with you're head. Just be happy with what you have!

    Funny guy. I know it sounds funny, but I just like a nice clean look. Oh well, I guess I will just be happy with what I have.

    Yeah, I am just being picky. I realize it is kind of dumb.
     
  16. Gator shallow racks fit nicely on cabs. I prefer them over SKB.
