Now I need more stuff to fill it!!!!!

Ran out of room with my little 8 space rack. This thing looked like it would do the trick to allow expansion of my studio and clear up some space on my desktop. You have to put this thing together yourself, but assembly was pretty easy. Power screwdriver helps to prevent fatigue. Everything fit well, and looks nice. Only problem is... now I have all these blank spots and I'm going to have to buy more stuff to fill them...

It supports all my gear in one rack. Strong and built like a tank. I'm glad I bought this product.

Most impressive!

There's a number of features I like about this rack. 1) I'm very impressed with the strength of the pressed wood they used. I was able to torch the screws down using a mid-high setting on my cordless drill and it took it with no sighs of stripping. 2) The rails are thick and strong and every threaded hole has perfect spacing. I installed gear in the top 9 unit spaces and every piece of gear fit snug, but with no tightness from the gear above or below. 3) The numbering on the rails takes out the guess work in figuring out which holes to use. 4) The rollers are made of a very strong plastic. I'd say they are comparable to the strength and height of my office chair. 5) They also roll over carpet without stiction. 6) The Laminate wood grain is very attractive. 7) The tilted top portion of the rack allows for better visibility when adjusting settings on my gear, a great future beyond just looking cool as hell. Lastly 8) The rack looks professional and sets the tone for the room, letting all who enter know you mean business. Final thoughts: This rack seems like it will last for years. For $200 you just can't find anything better. I can't imagine having to replace this rack unit in the near future, but if I had to expand and needed another rack, I wouldn't blink twice about getting anything else for Raxxess. Extra credit goes out to my sales rep Mark Bruhn. After I received the rack and mentioned to him that the rack doesn't come with screws to rack the gear, and that it would be most helpful to other customers, if the ad could reflect this. Before our conversion was over, he was able to notify the website department and they had updated the page. Thumps up Sweetwater, you guys really do get it!

Fantastic Rack

The rack is solid. Built like a tank. For a wood based rack, it feels like it belongs in a studio, but also feels like it could travel a bit too. May want different casters if that were the case. The wood doesn't feel cheap either. Very easy to put together pilot holes are well placed and the numbered rails make organizing your gear easy.

Worth the money

A good deal. Sturdy, good looking, functional. Took some time to put together, (screwing on the casters was a little tough) but not too bad. A perfect desk side rack. Lots of rack spaces for the money, love the top slant section.
