    Hi,

    I am trying to source a shallow 4u flight case that will fit my QU-SB.

    It’s tricky because the QU-SB rack mount angles the front and the bottom edge of the QU-SB projects out 38mm from the flight case screw plate. Most flight case front covers won’t fit on with the QU-SB installed.

    I thought this SKB might work but the dimensions show that the front cover is 10mm too shallow inside so it wouldn’t be possible to put the flight case lid on. http://www.skbcases.com/music/products/proddetail.php?f=&id=791&o=&c=114&s=

    Has anyone found a shallow flight case that definitely fits?
    it’s a class unit BTW…

    I considered getting one with a deeper lid made by Swan Flight who’ve provided several of my cases before, as it really does not add much to the cost. However in the end, I found another solution:

    My QU-Pac, which has the same angle on the front I believe, is in a “proper” ply/aluminium case, but I unbolted the rack strip & fitted it the other way around. It did make fitting the unit a little more fiddly, but once done it works very well.

    You could try spacing the rack back from the rails?

    Interesting solutions. Do you have any photos?

    I’ve just ordered the SKB 4u shallow roto rack, I didn’t check clearance…

    @GaryW – Hopefully you can work something out with that SKB as it’s a nice looking case.

    @[XAP]Bob – Do you mean install spacers so the QU-SB rack mount ear are screwed in from the back of the flightcase rails to gain the extra 10mm or so?

    I own the QU-PAC and I use this case which works perfectly. If the QU SB does not protrude any further forward than the QU PAC, then it will work. The rack is very shallow and allows for easy connection to the back. The quality is surprisingly good and I have been using mine regularly since I got the QU PAC over a year ago.

    That case looks exactly like this ‘Spider’ branded one here in the UK. I think that will do nicely.

    Yes, I do.

    I don’t have one, but it’s something I’ve done with other gear occasionally

    Rob,

    Can you get a Sweetwater rep. to special order them for you? I have always found them to be most helpful.

    It seems to be the case that there just aren’t any in the US yet for some reason.

    A bit of an extreme solution but Thomann in Germany would ship them to you!
