"Great Case for the Zoom R16 Multi-Track SD Recorder"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I cannot own a piece of equipment without some kind of case, just the way I am. Since my Zoom R16 will usually reside on my desk I do not need a flight case - just something to protect from dings, scratches and busted knobs and sliders.
The Zippers make an awesome sound when used. I have thought about sampling the sounds they are so nice.
The case has a nice, dense padding and there is plenty of room inside to store another piece of equipment or you could cut a piece of foam to create a tight fit for the equipment you place in there. The extra pocket on the outside has enough room for power cords, mic cords, manuals. I would like to see a padded hook and loop compartment separator for the main compartment in case you wanted to carry a second piece of equipment in the same bag, or a power supply, box of CDs, Microphones, headphones, etc.
Ease of Use
The zippers are very tough and slide very easy. They will likely hold up for years of use.
The overall quality is much more than I expected for the price. The nylon used for the main case is very durable and heavy. The zippers are very heavy and durable - they appear to be nylon. The only drawback I can see is the shoulder strap - it is flimsy and thin, but the hardware for using the shoulder strap is high quality. I do not ever envision the strap breaking or the hardware failing. Overall I love this bag and Gator now has a new customer.
I think the price on this item is highly competitive. I have seen padded cases close to this size for $20-$30 more and they do not have near the quality of construction or features.
I have not needed support.
The Wow Factor
There is some "wow" to it; it's an awesome looking bag and looks very professional. It actually looks rather - Showy!
