Sound Check Custom Was the Case That He Made Me

Moving gear and instruments from place to place is one of the necessary evils of playing music. The hassle of transporting that gear can be dicey, especially on a plane. Equipment must be packed, and packed right. You love your gear and you want it to be safe. Your gear is good to you, and deserves a decent case.
Can you say shock mount?
Mark DeHart at Rock Hard Cases in Albany, OR can make you that case. He can make any type of case for any type of gear. He will keep your gear-child safe. He is the Shock Mount Man. He’s also nice as hell.
His stuff is rugged, functional, and made for years of use. High-grade plywood case walls are riveted to aluminum framework. We’re talking double channel aluminum angle, heavy duty zinc plated steel corner protectors, and recessed latches and handles.
WARNING: The picture you are about to see is graphic in nature. For those who are gear sensitive, you might want to look away. Two Fish Studios were driving to record a concert and they had an accident. $65,000 worth of gear was dumped out onto the highway at 65 mph:
The trailer landed on a Rock Hard case and nothing was harmed. The wreckage was removed, the gear was powered up, and everything worked perfectly. Unbelievable. They made it to the show the next day, like nothing happened, and are still using the same case to this day. Let us give thanks.
Thank you, Mark, I am rock hard.
