Solid, sturdy. Exactly what it needs to be

This unit is exactly what it should be. Solid materials. Sturdy as hell.

Fits nicely in the corner...

Yep, just what you're looking at. An economy sized 8-unit rack. Sturdy wood and easy construction makes this a great buy for budget musicians. Just need a desk or end table to set it on. (for easy access and visibility.)

I needed a rack for my old Digi 001, compressor, and preamp with some room to grow. The ER-8 looks good, fits on my small side table and was easy to assemble. Nice product

Raxxess ER-8

Nice little box ... but, I do wish that it came with rails and screws

Too Hard to Assemble

I like the appearance of this rack, and it meets my needs ... but I'm over 65 and don't own a power screwdriver. Younger people may find it easier to drive the dozen 2" long wood screws into the particle board, especially if you're a non-musician so you don't care about hurting your wrists. Me, I just plain can't put the unit together. The Sweetwater page ought to say "POWER SCREWDRIVER REQUIRED." I'd send it back for a refund, but I'd have to break it apart into little pieces to fit it back into the box. (I may do that anyway.) This is not a bad product in any way -- but you've been warned.
