SKB Expands the Rack/Mixer Case Line

ORANGE, CA – Based on the popularity of the 1SKB-R104 and 1SKB-R106 mixer/rack cases launched last year, SKB Corporation announces the availability of a new size in the series.

The 1SKB-R102 is a 10U slanted top and 2U front facing rack case that is a perfect solution for small, compact audio or DJ systems. The one piece case is roto-molded of Linear Medium Density Polyethylene and the lid and front and rear doors are injection for durability and strength. Featuring steel threaded rails, hard lid and doors, side access ports (for cable routing), the 1SKB-R102 has enough space to mount the AV-8 computer shelf with the lid closed! The front door is hinged to the top lid while the back door provides maximum access to the rack gear. Two TSA locking SKB patented trigger latches secure the lid while the flat hard top allows for stacking in transport and storage.

“This is an ideal product for DJs as well as small, portable PA systems,” states SKB Product Manager, Steph Maffei. “The hardshell lid and doors provides maximum protection in transport and the steel threaded rails allow for hassle free and secure mounting of products. With many of the DJs now using computers in their setups, the addition of the 1SKB-AV8 shelf places the computer in the optimal performance position and the scissor hinge design stores the shelf under the hardshell lid for transport.”

The SKB-R102 is covered by SKB’s unsurpassed no-fault Million Mile Guaranty™ (Lifetime Warranty). And will be available January 2012 through authorized dealers at a MAP price of $179.99
