Sold - Touring amp rack flight case #2 - £120

Another day, another flight case and one of the three similar "tall" rack flight cases coming up for sale. Much like the others, it would be ideally suited to housing lighting dimmer racks, power distribution panels or audio amplifiers.

Rack flight case - dimmer racks or audio amplifiers?
The dimensions are; 95 cm x 52 cm x 66 cm, which is a substantial size, do bear in mind that this is quite a large item to fit in a car and will weigh a lot once fully loaded.

Rack flight case - heavy duty ply construction

The case is constructed from heavy duty ply, with a dark chocolate brown colour, textured finish, on the outside and a glossy Formica finish on the inside.
It has 8 large recessed industrial grade butterfly catches, 2 spring loaded recessed flip handles, heavy duty ball corners, wheel boards with 8 x 100mm castors and industry standard non-marking castors.

Rack flight case for sale - with heavy duty castors

Both the front and rear covers can be removed, the rear cover is fitted with castors in addition to the base. This has the advantage that the unit can be moved around on stage in its normal orientation, but also be moved safely "on its back" whilst in transit. It is so robust that you can place additional items on the case and use it as handy trolley for your load ins and outs.
Rack strips are fitted to both the front and rear sections.

There may be some light surface patination and bits of wear and tear, but everything works as it should.

In addition an IEC connector power distribution and conditioning system is installed along with a rack drawer and, wait for it, a cassette recorder, yay!

They are a couple of stencilled corporate branding logos, there is a tour label on the top.

This type of heavy duty road rack style flight case would cost from £250 upwards new. I have priced it at £120 for a speedy sale, the castors alone would cost around this much.
