shock_rack_20.jpgORANGE, CA, April 8, 2008 -- SKB Corporation, in the protection and transport of musical instruments, electronics and gear, has begun shipping its new 6U 20" rolling Shock Rack case (model number 3SKB-R06U20W). The new unit enhances previous SKB offerings by adding wheels and a sturdy pull handle, as well as updated TSA lock trigger latches and upgradeable elastomeric shocks.

As with all SKB shockmount cases, the rolling Shock Rack provides a rotationally molded tough shell with integrally molded valiance, and it comes standard with eight elastomeric shocks (load range 40 to 150 lbs). The load range can be enhanced by adding an additional shock on each mounting point (load range 300 lbs).

A new feature is the inclusion of SKB trigger latches with TSA locks, which allow for TSA screeners to exclusively unlock cases for security checks while keeping the contents otherwise locked and secure. SKB is the only case manufacturer to utilize this technology. Other standard features include a rubberized-gasket around the door to seal out dust and water, as well as stacking lugs. All trigger latches and handles are flush-mounted, so as to not disturb the cases' profile and stackability.

The 6U model will be joined by 4U and 8U models in summer 2008, making available several different solutions for the pro audio and live touring markets. Steph Maffei, Product Manager of SKB's Music Division, stated, "The new rolling Shock Rack is perfect for anyone needing to transport delicate electronic equipment. The sturdy shocks steadily cradle the contents, and the case itself is extremely durable and protective to the point of being virtually impenetrable. The handle and wheels make this product even more special; you don't have to use a separate wheel set - there's nothing you have to really do other than just extend the handle, tilt it back and roll it. This case reflects SKB's dedication to finding the most innovative, state-of-the-art ways to bring practicality and convenience to the pro audio and live touring case markets."

Like all SKB cases, SKB's 20" rolling Shock Rack cases are backed by SKB's unsurpassed Million Mile GuarantyTM(Lifetime Warranty). The new 6U Shock Rack Case (3SKB-R06U20W) is available immediately from authorized SKB dealers throughout North America with an estimated street price of $579.99
