I picked up this SKB 6U Rack Mount Gig Box from a musician in North Jersey a couple days ago. My intention is to build a Go-Kit like some that I have seen on the Web utilizing cases like these. I am one of those Dude’s who firmly believes in being overly prepared. I’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Will this make for a sizeable and probably weighty Go-Kit? Sure! I don’t mind it though as this baby has wheels and a handle for towing it along. So, I’m now in the R&D Phase of this build and looking for ideas. Feel Free to send me your ideas in the comments or to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you’d like to donate to this project and help me build it you can use the Paypal Donate button on the home page to help support this and future projects.
