Not only is this case highly sturdy and of the highest quality but it is most certainly trustworthy when it comes to protecting what is the heart of your PA system. The 7mm ply and protective foam forms a highly protective atmosphere to keep your desk in. We've had this case and associated desk for a number of months now and even though its been through a number of scrapes it has protected the desk 100%. I think this case is going to keep the desk clean , safe and functional for many a year to come!
The rear hinge system means that you cannot simply lift the lid off entirely unless you hinge the lid all the way back, in which case the lid comes off. If there were catches on both sides that would be an improvement.
The catches ore of the toggle case latch type. Whilst sturdy, butterfly catches would provide more security to this case as it would prevent accidental catching and opening of the latch, as has happened with me on one occasion.
In summary the case is of very good build quality and shows good value for money. It will protect your case to the highest degree. Be aware of the rear hinge and catches but don't let that put you off a fantastic case!
