    a rack is a case that holds amps, tuners, power conditioners, effects processors, etc. (rack mountable ones that is)

    There are different size racks, styles, blah blah..
    Racks protect your gear from getting beat up.. and keep them in one place..

    here is what i put in my 6-space rack

    Furman power conditioner
    SWR IOD preamp
    Korg tuner
    carvin dcm1500 power amp

    in that order
  3. Racks are basically just empty boxes with mouning rails installed inside so you can mount seperate rackmount components like power amps, preamps, effects (etc) inside. Some are wood, some are made of a plastic/fiberglass/resin sort of stuff. They're all a standard 19" wide, but they come in variety of hights and depths to accomodate different types and numbers of components.
