It's a rack drawer
29.10.2014
I can't imagine a particularly passionate review could written about such a mundane item, but it works and succeeds at being a rack drawer.

I think where this drawer shines brightly is in its dependability. I've noticed upon putting items (cables, strings, plectrums etc) INTO the drawer and closing it, that after a cup of tea and perhaps a biscuit or piece of toast, those things are STILL THERE when I get back. They remain within the drawer where I put them. I cannot tell you how many rack drawers I've used where items placed into them are transported to to forgotten unknown realms of nothingness, where only lament and sadness thrive and cursed items realm the shadows unopposed by the lesser, weaker items.

Drawer Of Holding
AlexSaint, 23.12.2020
I bought a 10U rack to hold my AxeFX III and Helix Rack (yes, I'm spoiled and spend far too much on gear). When I was building this, I decided I wanted a drawer to hold all my spare cables, strings, picks, tools, etc.

It's hard to get excited about a drawer, but the quality of this unit really is excellent. It glides smoothly on its rails, the latch holds the drawer shut when you want it shut, but opens easily.

2U is enough to easily hold several cables, half a dozen packs of spare strings, some tools, bags of picks, batteries, zip ties and there's still room for a couple of mics or spare socks.

If you have 2U available in your rack, put one of these in it.

Solid and smooth
01.10.2014
Very solid rack drawer. Feels sturdy and tough.

The drawer closes with a clicking mechanism and opens by pushing down the handle. It opens and closes very smoothly and the "lock" feels strong. It's not going to open by itself. You could probably hold it up with a full drawer facing down and it still wont open (note that I haven't actually tried this, but it feels like it would be able to do this).

The only drawback is that it is quite heavy at 8kg. I'm using it in an 8u case and it feels as if the drawer is actually heavier than all the other gear in the case combined.
This seems like nitpicking though, and isn't even a real issue in the end. It's more a testament to its sturdiness really.

Overall I really like this item. Its solid, has a smooth drawer and fits enough tools and cables to cover a relatively simple setup.

Reassuringly solid
The Professor, 12.09.2018
I bought this to store microphones ? and got the "Thon Universal Inlay 2U drawer", too, which is an expanded foam liner for the drawer and well worth it if the kit you're intending to store is delicate. The drawer itself is heavy-gauge sheet steel and the pull-handle includes a latch mechanism so once it's shut, it stays shut. Build quality is reassuringly solid and the whole thing looks professional and neat. It's hard to get truly excited about bits of kit that don't make a noise or have flashing lights on (or, ideally, both), but a couple of drawers full of mics and cables are what make the studio world go round; so while this isn't exactly sexy, it's nevertheless very useful.

One of the best drawers I've ever used
Mockie, 18.12.2019
Good thing about this drawer is that it's sturdy! You could blow up the thing and it would probably survive.
I have two issues with the design though and they are very nitpicky indeed...

One is that the door's latch is a little stiff, sure it keeps the thing from opening but you have to pull down and out simultaneously and it can be a little tough to grip. The well on the handle could be ever so slightly deeper or the catch spring could be a tiny bit less stiff, like I said, I'm nitpicking here

And secondly the drawer extends only 2/3rds of the way out making it harder to utilise the space in the back, particularly if you have the foam insert. Not a big problem but if you're putting something large in the drawer you might have to angle it weird, I don't know...

That being said I'm quite happy with this drawer and I would recommend it to my friends and contemporaries alike

Needs a good shove to close
anoym, 09.12.2019
I feel like the spring-loaded catch which holds the drawer closed is a bit too stiff and requires a good amount of force to overcome when closing the drawer again - enough to shake/rattle the table on top of the rack it was mounted in. Other than that, very sturdy and useful for keeping small but often-needed bits of studio gear in.

I mean...It's Okay
30.06.2015
What can you say?
Reasonably priced however build quality isn't amazing.

The draw is fairly stiff and not great to use on a daily basis but it holds your bits and pieces.

You get what you pay for..!

Could be better...
Alex Cailliau, 01.04.2019
19? Drawers don?t come up cheap... This was the cheapest but there is a reason for: from the beginning the door doesn?t close easily. It looks like the front panel is slightly bend causing the right side of the drawer not to close properly. This affect the closing mechanism as well. The solution is to close the thing with force. But this is not really a quality sign.
This said, the drawer fits its purpose. But should I buy one again, i might go look somewhere else first...

Can't fault it
RipChord, 28.11.2018
Built to take the road. Its robust and heavy which is what you want in a rack drawer. The only problem is that it doesn't open all the way.

Best thing ever
I'mTheSoundGuy, 23.10.2019
This is the best rack drawer that's out there. Combine it with the Thon Inlay foam 2U and you get the most safe and stable environment to carry around wireless mics/iem beltpacks/etc when you're touring. Bought 2 pieces for my band's wireless mics/iem rack and it works like a charm. 50 shows this year and not a single squeak from the drawer's rail. It adds a little weight to your rack, but if you can get your equipment around safe and there are some tech guys to push your cases and racks then there's no problem !

My favourite drawer in the world
Wheels, 18.07.2019
Not exaggerating, I could not love a draw more than this one. I can't even walk into Ikea anymore, it has spoiled me for life.

To make it even sexier we mounted it in our rack and bought some foam inlays to put mics and packs in. The foam is red which adds a layer of additional sensuality to the opening experience.

Very convenient
RandomReaper, 25.04.2017
This kind of item should be mandatory in a rack.

I use it to store patch cables, wire managers and screwdrivers for the rack.

Sturdy and reliable
10.07.2015
Having used a few of these before I didn't hesitate to pick up another. Heavy duty, sturdy and built like a rock, the only problem is the weight, if you don't like carrying heavy things steer clear of this as it does add significant weight to your rig. Spacious and strong, well worth the money.

Nice solid drawer.
Andypoo, 06.01.2020
Keep in mind that if you are buying something like this for a portable rack (like the Thomann 10U), then you may wish to reconsider given the weight of the drawer. I actually pulled this from my rig due to its weight.

But for a more permanent rack installation, it would be great.

The opening handle is a little sticky and doesn't seem to be as natural to open/lock as I would expect.

Huge, heavy unit
05.02.2016
We cut it with the grinder so it would fit into a plastic rack.
The material has very good quality so we could customise it and make what we wanted.
It is big and heavy, you will need a big strong rack for it.

Thomann 2U rack draw
Flash.LBL, 04.10.2019
Recently switched to using rack mounted gear so I don't have to carry around separate cases and bags for my amp, pedals etc. I've been using this draw to put my cables, spare strings, picks etc in. It's fantastic in terms of build quality and very easy to install. It's pretty weighty but that, to me, is a sign of quality. The draw is slightly hard to open but that's only a minor downside but it does also mean it can't open on it's own which is obviously a good thing.

Christopher5496, 20.05.2014
A very convenient addition to have for your travel rack. Fits in nicely with my SKB rolling rack to hold small tools, candy, cables, documents and good luck charms. Definitely worth the value.

High Quality

This Rack Drawer by Thon is very massive. It fits perfectly into the Studio Rack. Furthermore it offers enough room for me (as a drummer) to store essential items such as gloves or grip tape etc. very easily.

wow
Alistair D., 20.11.2014
these things can really take a hammering!

first thing i thought when unwrapping, the weight. these drawers are pleasingly heavy! You instantly know that they're ready for the road before you put them anywhere near a flight case.

Don't worry though because they're not so heavy it takes a forklift to move gear around!

The locking latch is nice, to stop the drawer sliding open in transit.

the outer case is well designed so the drawer opens easily and everything inside, stays inside, of which you can put plenty of items due to the size.

when racked up and closed these drawers look smart and professional. highly recommend buying a few to keep all your loose bits safe on the road
