Rackmount drawers

    I did a search for these guys, and they don't seem to be very popular around here. One guy said it was heavier than his power amp!? Trust me - I won't have that problem. I have a 12-space rack that currently contains (plus rack spaces):

    Furman Power Conditioner (1)
    dbx 266XL compressor (1)
    Korg DTR-2000 (1)
    Ampeg SVT-II (4)

    I own a handful of other little knick-knacks and pedals, but not enough to warrant a pedal board (at least, I don't think so). I have an older (i.e., not G2) Sennheiser wireless unit without its rackmounting bay, an EHX Russian Muff Pi, a SansAmp PBDI, and a Li'l Jovi on the way. I also plan on investing in a Yamaha SPX 990 FX processor (1), so that would leave enough room for one of those giant 4-space drawers for the pedals, extra cords, extra strings, and the wireless unit - all to be padded, mind you. I know that a four-space seems a bit like overkill, but that Muff pedal needs a lot of clearance, and I think the 3-space would be a little tight.

    So basically, can anyone help me with options? I saw that Middle Atlantic has a variety of options, and that SKB drawers, for some reason, are not highly regarded (as per Musician's Friend). Weight's not really an issue (well, it kinda is), since the SVT-II is going to be way heavier than anything else I could throw in there that doesn't have giant transformers. I mean, how heavy are we talking?
