from Solves more problems than it creates.I bought this for two reasons. 1) it was lighter than the plywood/fibreglass road case I was using. 2) It's SKB.It IS, in fact, lighter than my previous case. Makes a big difference when I'm schlepping hardware to and from a gig every weekend. It's robust enough that it can take a beating from some of the club grips where I have to set up, and there's enough space in the cabinet ventilation isn't an issue for some of my warmer toys. Stacks; opens and closes with a twist. So, setup on a time compressed gig is quicker. Molded case has rounded corners, without corner covers. And it takes up about the same space in the truck as the 4 space case it replaced. That translates into fewer cases. More equipment, same space, same weight in the truck.Hardware is mounted to the case with rivets. Hardware isn't as robust as the previous case, but SKB service is excellent. I don't expect any problems. To be clear, I've had no issues with the hardware that's mounted on the case. Just saying.Rails fore and aft. Strong rails, mounted substantially.Good, inexpensive solution when you need a case. I definitely recommend it for real world work.
