Whether you are a local musician carting gear to pubs and clubs on weekends or a seasoned touring professional, it is essential to ensure your critical gear is protected from damage during transport. Road cases provide this protection while also enabling gear to be loaded and stacked more efficiently. Along with wheels and handles, road cases are designed not only to protect but to make bump in and out a lot easier. Typical styles of road case include the industry standard 19" rack case; often refereed to as a flightcase and used for transport of processors, effects and amplifiers. Instrument hard cases are also common and essential for the traveling musician.
