SKB Studio Flyer Portable Studio Rack 4U
Images Studio Flyer Portable Studio Rack 4U
Well designed, while plastic cons, so no other flycase stiffness of wood.
My MacBook Pro 15 'is protected as the gear rack, cable management practice to avoid having to unplug cables firewire 100 times Digi003 or to others.
Quality casters for transport. Telescoping handle very convenient if somewhat squeaky for my taste. Plus: Lifetime or near what I understand.
Attention to the bulk and weight anyway!
Average value is a good product but expensive.
The ideal travel solution...
This one is definitely too large for carry on. Then again it has TSA locks, meaning you can check it lock, and the TSA can rifle through it and lock it again.
Unlike conventional racks where the doors are held in place my the latches this one locks the doors into place my way of the lid that covers the lap top compartment (hinged on one side, latched on the other).
Take off the lock, or for that matter when you use it sans lap top, lift the top and take off the doors.
It's made out of molded plastic and seems sturdy enough. Weighs less than a regular wood rack, especially less than a regular shock mount wood rack. However it still is fairly heavy and you can get over the 50 lbs. baggage allowance for air travel real quick.
Downsides...if you stick anything in it that has handles on the face plate the door will not close. The rack rails aren't as far recessed as on a shock mount and this is a common problem. Means you will have to make a trip to the hardware store to buy nuts and bolts thew replace the efx unit's handles and secure the face plate again.
Also there is no way to secure the power supply on the back.
And before I forget there is reach through holes that let you leave the lap top connected.
I strongly advise this for any mobile studio or DJ, if you need a lap top and some rack mount gear, such as audio interface, etc... this is a must have.
Protect your gear
The unit is very well built and will protect all of your modules from any damage while it is set up or during transporting it from one place to another. It is so easy to rack your modules and then transport them with the SKB Studio Flyer 4U. Once you put the cover over it you just slide out the handle like you would on a carry on suitcase and then you can wheel it out just like you would a suitcase. This unit without anything in it only weighs 20 pounds or so and when you put your gear in it, it won’t weigh much more than that. The case is made out of polyethylene; it is a great material to have for this case because it will keep your gear safe from moisture or spills.
The 4U is a great rack and it is one of the best investments that I have made for my rig and set up. I travel to DJ so much and the SKB Studio Flyer 4U has helped me out in a lot of ways. It has made protecting my gear and transporting my gear safe and easy.
