"Worthy investment for touring, especially overseas touring."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound
As for a hard plastic bass case, it has a dead thump when I hit it.
Features
The luggage- style wheels make it essential for schlepping through airports.
Ease of Use
P-bass fits snugly. Enough compartment space for boss tuner, cables, set of tools. Flew over to the UK and currently on a Euro tour. Very lightweight. So far, working great.
Quality
It's the same hard plastic used in pelican cases. It is made for tour and overseas travel. One seam does not appear to mate very well, but you can hear the air being pushed out when you shut it. The seam is my only complaint.
Value
Expensive, but I think this will be a worthy investment.
The Wow Factor
You might only get a better case if it is custom made, but encased in the pelican material.
Musical Background:
15 years playing, serious touring 8 years.
Musical Style:
rock.
