    Hey all,

    I have a Peavey 700 Firebass head... it comes in a case.... but i recently acquired 2 rack mount cases (8 space i think... but that's not important).. and (along with a LOT of other stuff) a few nice rack effects processors, a furmann power module w/ lights, and a Sonic Maximizer... I wanted to put this stuff, along with my head, in a rack and use it as my rig... the only problem is, i don't know if my head can come out of the box it comes in. My question is.. Can i take the head out of the box, or is it permanently in there, and is there any way to get it out?

    Thanks so much for all your input!
    It is GREATLY appreciated.
    -Evan

    well.. you can keep the head...

    or you could sell it.. pick up a peavey max preamp.. and then a carvin or QSC power amp..

    yeah, man.. i love peavey stuff... besides my Ampeg cabs, it's the only amp equipment i have... but, dude!.. it's only 2 INCHES!!!!!!! why can't they just modify it a bit to fit in a rack case like every other good head in the world?!!!! well, whatever... its all gravy train, or so i say!

    It came in it's own case/rack, right?
