I would love it if Kemper would make a case for the rack, like they have for the toaster. More of a bag, really.
I recently purchased a Gator case for my Rack. It's good for now, but it's not ideal.
For one thing it is normal depth, not shallow. This is ok, but I have to reach in the back to plug everything in. I also worry that the extra space will not allow for enough circulation and the Kemper might get too hot.
Also, I am trying to make only one trip in from the car with my entire rig. I have succeded, but in order to do this I have to put all my cords, plugs, MIDI cables etc into the extra space behind the Kemper in the rack.
The top pocket would be big enough to hold all of that, but at the moment I am putting my MIDI controller in there and it barely fits (it's a Musicomlab EFX MKIII and the zipper on the pocket is stressed).
What I propose for a case/bag is:
1. Plastic covered with a soft padded bag of some sort. 3U size....maybe 4U for extra airflow?
2. Shallow depth
2a. Possibly a little extra room in the back for a pocket on the inside of the back flap for some cables or misc items.
3. Large pocket on top - big enough to hold the Kemper Remote, but also big enough for alternate controllers (my Musicomlab is about 3 inches tall) with room to spare for a few cables.
3a. Possibly some pockets on the sides?
4. Heavy Duty shoulder strap
The Gator case I am using now almost fits that description - it was the closest I could find. But the pocket is smaller than I was expecting (shallower really....I don't need more room corner to corner, I just wish there was more headroom).
Here is what I bought:
Like I said it's ok, but that top pocket is going to wear out pretty fast because I'm stressing the zipper too much.
I know you guys can do better than that.....what do you say?!
