    Looking for a storage/transpo solution for a TF 550B..
    What do you guys do?
    I do not expect to move this unit much, If I do ONLY I will be carrying it, but would still like to keep the weight down..not sure if it will fit a shallow rack...
    Understand the chassis runs hot, so not sure about a rack bag...

    Love the TF cabbage case but not ready to spend 225 and it is more than I need..

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    Mark

    PS..big thanks to Steve for the opportunity....

    I use the handle on the side. Not worried about a few scratches...all works well on the inside!

    I use this generic aluminium tool-box. The TF fits there perfectly. You just have to pull out the internal compartment dividiers.
    It is also very cheap.

    I don't know if it is available in your country, but in Czech (EU?) you have it in all big chains of hobby stores like OBI, Baumax, Bauhaus, etc.
    It is China made anyway.

    FYI, the 550b does not run particularly hot, so no problem there. I believe the 750a run at 2ohms runs very hot, but the 550b even pushed at 4ohms with the fan on only gets a little warm.

    I LOVE the cabbage case, and would recommend saving your pennies for one. GREAT case. However, I also used a standard SKB 2 space rack with mine (it will 'barely' fit in a shallow rack, but it's nice to have room for cables, etc. in the back of the standard SKB 2 space). I believe they are around $125 at Musician's Friend.

    I used a Protec 2U for a while but soon I realized that this way it wasn't more the great lightweight amp that I bought. So I just rely on the side handle and enjoy lifting it with two fingers!
    And don't worry about scratches and bumps ... everything will be fine inside.

    pretty sure the aguilar carry bag for the ag500 fits the tfb550.

    but you might want to check. fyi, the ag500 is about 10" deep.
