Hey all

So I run a 2u Ashdown head and I’m looking at getting a better flight case for it.

Now, should I...

a) Get a better 2u rack case (probably SKB)

b) Get a 4u with a 2u drawer

or

c) something else...

thanks for you thoughts

You know what, Rik...

I did- and then took out the wireless and moved it all to a 3u! 😆

It wasn't an Ashdown amp, but still...

Back in my guitar-playing days this was the Behemoth!  The top rack was a reasonable weight given that the JMP-1 weighed in around 5kgs...shame that the same can't be said for the 29.5kg Marshall valve power-amp!

Nice!

I still find it strange that Marshall no longer make the JMP-1.

It was, and still is a beast of a pre-amp - esp if you get the Voodoo mod done which makes it even more of a beast!  http://www.voodooamps.com/home/Modifications/AMPMODIFICATIONS/MarshallMods1/JMP1Preamp/tabid/150/Default.aspx

They had their dalliance with that horrible CODE modelling head thing that they brought out but I agree that there's still a place for the JMP-1 out there.  Hell - even the guys from Leps and Maiden only replaced their JMP-1s in the last couple of years.  I think Gibbons still uses his in his live rack?

If you don't want a traditional flight case Zilla do some nice things, racks that look more like traditional head cabinets.

I put my 2u SS head in a 4u rack case. IMO the extra space is good for ventilation and air flow.

The problem with putting other stuff in the rack as well is that there's no rear input on the Ashdown head, leaving you with a trailing cable if you want anything before the amp like a wireless. 

 

Tuner is a good shout though.

Best 1 amp and nothing else solution I have ever had was a rack bag. Easy to carry total protection, less bulky, a pocket on top. 

Wish I'd kept it.

I used to have a 6u with an SVT3, rack tuner, wireless, and a 1u power distributer/rack light, only had to plug in power and the speaker cable and I was good to go. 

Then I got a Genz Benz Shuttle that could fit in a gig bag pocket and sacked it all off 🤣
