    I've been talking to Rooster at Trailer Trash and am looking at his 30x18 Rock Star board. I would prefer to have a hard case, instead of the soft case that is supplied, that I can transport the board and take the board out of at gig time. I would like something that isn't going to cost me $400-$500 but is of more quality than the cheap Rondo Music case I have now. I don't need ATA quality but need something hard enough to stack and to move in and out of the truck box. Any suggestions or sites?

    P.S. Rooster at Trailer Trash is the man if you need a board!

    The TT website states they can supply an ATA case for your board. Did you ask Rooster if one was available?

    The TT hard cases are $400 minimum according to Rooster.

    Tanner,

    Is there a way to order custom configs from them without paying the retail prices? I like their stuff, but honestly, your paying on the high end of the scale for what they are, there is no disputing that. (Note that I have no problem with that either)

    I'm like you, would rather a hard case too, but already assumed they were pricey too.

    Are you referring to paying high end of the scale for TT pedal boards or the cases?

    TT pedalboards. $400 sounds like a normal price for a HD case, but not all of us need something that HD.

    I had a case custom made for my board at Rock Hard Roadcases in Oregon. Ran about $250, exactly to my specs. Awesome heavy duty case, thick padding, recessed latches, and hook/hinges on back side to just pop the lid off.

    I've got some nice pedals, and load them around a couple times a week. I figured for the cost of just one freakin pedal, I could stop worrying about thrashing them, as well as make setup/teardown easier. I'm way happy.
