    My band is looking to tour next summer, and so I'm looking to find a 10 space roadready rack case. Maybe even a shockmounted one. Any know where I can find one online for a good price?

    There is a guy named Harleyyy over at the Dudepit that got one a few months back. Look through the Amp section over there and you might find his post about it.

    Check out engineeredcase.com I ordered my 12-space elastomer shock rack from them for a good price. Ask for the "lidmaker" extrusion.

    I have toured pretty extensively in just about every state and I really don't think a shockmount case is really necessary, just be real careful with your gear and you will be fine...this is obviously just my opinion, but is based on experience. The only problem I had with my gear was that I bought SWR!! :eek:

    The "RoadReady" case that I bought at GC for a very small amount of money has been great. Very sturdy and actually road worthy!

    Definitely recommend the 'Jan-Al' rackmount cases... I believe they're as good as any "Anvil", but at about half the cost.

    You can get 'special sales' items, stock inventory or have them build a case per your order.

    I didn't check to see where you're residing; Jan-Al is in Los Angeles, CA. Might be best to browse through their website, of which the URL escapes me at present, and see if there's gear that sparks your interest.

    I like shock mount racks for tube gear, but I don't think it's necessary for anything else, really. I use Mesa/Boogie racks, which are probably the best in the business, but they are expensive. They suspend the gear away from the walls of the rack on pneumatic shocks, and allow for airflow around the gear. I have 20 tubes in this one rig alone, and it would probably get pretty hot in there (and possibly damage some of the more fragile gear, too).

    There's a few of these on ebay right now. You should be able to get a good deal there.
