    SKB makes rack cases in 4 space heights as well as just about any other size a body could need.In addition to their standard line,they have a more cost effective line called "Roto Racks".I happen to have a 4 space one of these,it cost me about 50 bucks and for going from home to gig in a car,they are more than enough protection.
     
  3. what other brands are out there other than skb? i dont really like the look, or basicly trust that "plastic" look.

  5. I have an 8 space Anvil-style ATA rack that I got for 150 bucks. IMO the SKB's are great protection...but only once...they are like a motorcycle helmet...once they crash you shouldn't reuse them.

    If you're looking for a combination of lightweight, economy and protection, SKB is a good bet. Check the Zzounds Web site -- I got mine (four-space -- regular, not the rotoracks) there about a year ago for $100 shipped!
     
  7. Hey, I've got a 12 space SKB (the regular version with front and rear rails)laying around gathering dust that I'll sell for $100 + shipping if anyone cares. Very good condition, btw.
