  • Are cases extremely important for a 4x12?

    I'm just wondering because at the moment I am not planning on any flight travels with my cabs. Just drives on the backseat of my car.

    If you are touring, I wouldn't go without one.

      No touring for me, atleast not for a while. Right now the only thing I can think of is a one time travel from Florida to NY with the cab in the back of my truck.

      I definitely will get a case when I can but I'm just hoping car rides won't be too detrimental to their function.

        You should be totaly fine then. I only have cases for my stuff becuase I know it gets treated pretty rough on the road and I'm not always the one handling my gear.

          yeah... there's really not much need for a cab unless you're doing HEAVY touring.

                The other guys did.

                Basically, I will be handling the equipment myself and the only travel will be in my car for the cabinet.

                  I ended up accidentally saying it to my girlfriend at the time. I said "Someone told me that Ben got with a really fat girl and he titty-****************ed her"

                    Get a nice cover. It can make a big difference in the amount of little dings and things you will get.

                        It's important to me! Considering how beat to **************** my Peavey cab got just doing locals shows.
                        I was throwing it in the back of our drummers truck for shows around town, and into a Van when we did out of state shows, in nearby NM, NV, and CA.
                        The tolex got ripped to ****************!
                        Now that I have a HiWatt, Im getting a case for that ****************er, since I'm starting a new band.

                          Oh it's definitely going to be a purchase I'm going to make at one point. Just not sure I can dish out for it just yet, I still need my power amp.

                              well.. my stuff has never gotten dinged....yo...

                              maybe it's because I don't toss it into my car or truck..and take care of it when it's in transit.............


                              and i've done quite a few shows. + i think cases add quite a bit of weight to the cab.
