Hey all! I'm a bass player with a GK Backline 600 head, and I've been wanting to pair it up with a nice distortion pedal/rack and tuning pedal/rack for a little while now. I was wondering if anyone know what size rack case to get for these three items, and which would be the best bang for my buck? Thanks!

It's very simple. Find out how many vertical rack spaces your units take up, then buy a rack case with that many units. They're all 19" wide, not counting the half rack units of course.

How do I go about finding that out?

When you buy a rack unit, it tells you how many rack spaces it takes up. every 1.75" of height is 1 rack space, also known as 1U/2U/3U, etc.

I don't know what rack units you are looking at, so I don't know the spaces it takes up. The GK looks like 2U, so you'll need at least that many.

Thank you man! Can you give me a ballpark estimate how much a 4U rack case would come out to be?
