Racks With Wheels

    Do the wheels vibrate at all? If not, which brands/models? If so, which ones? And if so, is there a fix?

    I ask because I want a 6 space rack with wheels (and handle) that doesn't emit any extra noise (critical studio micing at times). Otherwise, I can build one, so I'll take any advice there as well.

    As always, much appreciation and thanks ahead. You guys rock. :)

    I have no experience with racks that have wheels but SKB has some racks with built-in wheels and luggage type handle. If nothing will do then I guess it's back to a cart of some type to take out of the room for recording. As long as the rack is sitting on the wheels and there is firm pressure on the wheels then they should be fairly quiet. The ball bearings and other parts may vibrate but it may be as simple as throwing a towel on it to muffle the noise. I wish I could help more but if I tried I would just be ignorant.

    Most wheels of the type you would put on the bottom of a rack *should* be removable so that if they cause a problem you can just unscrew them.
