However, I've used it for a few weeks, about 5 gigs, and already the rubber bumpers on the bottom of the case have broken off. Not a huge deal, but for this kind of cash I'd expect them to last longer. Also, I've had to make a repair/replacement of one of the inside straps. The clasp is quite cheap (plastic), and broke the first time I used it. Replaced it with a metal one from my previous case, which has worked fine.
This case has served me very well for almost a decade, and has even protected my gear in a high-speed, roll-over accident.
My only complaint with this SKB case is that it has two heavy-duty handles on the lid, and unless you've only got a few light-weight stands in there -- which wouldn't make sense for a case this size -- the lid handles cannot support the weight of the case for long. I load my case with my drum throne, 5 double-braced, heavy-duty stands, kick pedal, stick bag, and sometimes guitar/mic stands while on-tour. After about 2 years of constant use both lid handles busted right off during separate load-ins, but it wasn't the plastic or the handle itself that failed: it was the thin strip of (what seemed like) tin holding each handle to the lid. If these handles are intended to support the weight of the case then the lid should really be reinforced with some rigid metal (perhaps aluminum) bars, and the handles should be attached to those. Reinforcing the lid would keep if from flexing when lifted by those handles, which would transfer the load to the straps holding the lid in-place.
To be honest: I'm glad those lid handles busted off, because I'd always have to tell people helping me load my gear: "Don't lift the case by those handles!" Now that the handles are gone I don't have to warn anybody.Read more ›
- Pretty sturdy
- Compact enough to fit in the back seat of a car
- Easy to carry (albeit w/ 2 people) and maneuver (even by yourself thanks to the wheels)
- Holds drum hardware/pedals AND has spare room for things such as microphone stands, microphones, cables, etc
- Outside straps ensure the lid is closed tight
- Doesn't have handle on bottom where wheels are
- Inside straps are nice, but the clasp side of it doesn't extend fully to the top of the case (this can be annoying when trying to secure a lot of equipment)
I've used this case for about 15 shows now and it's held up very nicely! No issues to speak of and everything is still attached.
I haven't tried to fit rack hardware in here yet so I assume it'll be ok, since rack hardware is 36" and the interior of this case is about 38". That will be the next thing I load up in this beast. Overall though, I recommend this case as long as you don't need something ridiculously large to haul of lot of equipment. At that point it just becomes un-carriable anyways.
