VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Feature: Includes 6-space rack rails on the front of the unit, but it does not come with rear rails. This was not a problem for me, as I was hooking up a snake that would be stored inside the case and unrolled out the rear of the unit, so those rear rails would not have been used anyways. On two of the four latches that connect the lid to the main body of the unit, there are small holes in the latch that allow a suitcase-style lock to be used to keep people from taking off the lid and messing with your gear. It's got locking caster wheels, too. It doesn't say so in the description, but my unit DID come with rack screws, a whole bunch of 'em. I didn't know that and bought 50 screws at the same time, and now I've got more than I could ever need. One last thing: the main body of the rack doesn't have a floor. I'm sure that they did this so you could attach an additional 6U of rack space below the main body and run cables between the sections, but this means that whenever you want to change the unit into the stacked lid-on-the-bottom mode, you have to take everything out of the main body compartment. Otherwise, it'll just fall through. I solved this by building a floor out of some leftover wood flooring. Ease of Use: You definitely need two people to lift this thing, even if you don't have any gear in it. It's got two folding handles on each side, which makes lifting easy. It's also got indents molded into the front and rear of the lid, which provide additional lifting points if you need to get the unit through a doorway that's narrow. However, these molded indents don't provide you with much grip strength, so you won't be able to carry it around like that for very long. When used in the stacked lid-on-the-bottom mode, the mixer is elevated to the perfect height for mixing, and you have easy access to your rack gear. When not stacked, it's a little less comfortable to use, because if you're sitting in a chair with your legs facing the unit, your knees hit the front of the case. You don't have to worry about hitting your rack gear, but it makes it so that you have to lean and reach to access knobs at the middle and top of your mixer, which can get uncomfortable after a while. Quality: Though the unit is made almost entirely of plastic, it seems extremely durable and road-worthy. I'm sure it'll outlast some of my other gear. Value: It's a bit pricey, but if you've got a deep mixer and rack gear that you want to protect from gig to gig, you'll never need to buy a replacement. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with it. The Wow Factor: Looks awesome, it's all black, and it doesn't show scuffs. Overall: This thing's a beast, but it holds a lot. Make sure you've got room in your vehicle for it, and you'll love it.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
