Hello all: Can anyone tell me if there is a SKB, Gator or Pelican rpoduct for T1 tone match ??
I don't know of any purpose-made hard cases for a T1, but I just picked up one of these to carry mine around:ATA-style briefcase
I ordered it with the pick'n'place foam so I can customize the interior to accomodate the T1 and a few other items I use with my live sound rig, etc. Cost was about $65.00 and quality appears to be very good.
I found a case by a company called Seahorse Cases that is the perfect size for the T1. You can find a link to the case and more info at the end of this thread.
Hope that helps,

I recently had a road case made for my T1. In the end of it I have enough room for the base of my Model 2.
For small, local gigs I use the soft bags from Bose. I had the road cases made because when we did longer trips in the band van, things started getting crammed and thrown around more and it was making us nervous.
Also, because it's cheap and I like my Bose, I always put/store/carry my T1 in one of those bubble-wrap postal envelopes.
Please post a picture of your new "road case made for your T1".
The SKB case mentioned earlier for the L1 Model II base has a place in it for the T1. I purchased it along with the SKB case for the speakers. They are well worth the money to protect your Bose system.
Thanks Mister "D",
I'm aware of the SKB case. I was curious about Tomg's case.
Sorry I didn't reply quicklier. Christmas happened all of a sudden. Hey, nobody told me.
Here are the pictures of my cases. They were made by Space Case in Sacramento. I have been happy with their previous products.
With all my looking around, I didn't see the SKB cases. Hey, nobody told me. The prices aren't that much different, I think. (Edit: $600 for the two) I am familiar with SKB cases. They are strong and tough. My impression is that the Space Cases are slightly tougher, and heavier. They are better for van packing. However, I'm being picky - there is probably not much difference.
I chose to have multiple cases made instead of one big, much heavier one because some day I could reconfigure the boxes to hold something else.
I don't see how to attach more than one thing at a time. Nobody told me.
Note that at the end of the pedestal case there is room for T1, cords, cables, with room for more.
I haven't put the B1s in cases yet. I have an idea that I may put them AND the pedestal in a case for a 4 X 12 half stack. It is just about the same size. They are easy to find or I'll have them built.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Tomg,
And this is my paranoid way of carrying my T1 around. I put it in the provided Bose soft case and then I put that in the bubble wrap.
Those are fine looking cases. I like the bubble wrap too.
Yes, you are correct - you can only attach one thing (photo) to a post. If you have the photos hosted on a photo sharing site then you can embed a link to several of them within a single post, but it's fine to share pictures as you have done here.
I looked at your cases and couldn't help but get a sense of incredible contrast with respect to weight: The custom cases look heavy to me, and the bubble wrap ... well ... that's more my style.
I ordered 2 of those Seahorse cases mentioned above. It is like they were designed for the T1. Perfect fit.
The cases are only for rock band road trips. Even though they are heavier, they can be stacked on top or on the bottom of any pile, and if the other band happens to drop their case on top of my stuff in the backstage dark storage room, nothing gets hurt.
Around town we go with the Bose provided bags. The bags are fine for that or when I pile it all in my car to go play with a jazz combo or other light group.
A photographer friend turned me on to bubble wrap. It comes in all sizes, when it is old you can easily replace it, and it does not look like anything valuable like a camera case, etc.
I referred to a half stack case that would fit two B1s and the pedestal. It could be used for transport and laid on it's back for simple loading and unloading. Here is a link that shows the design:
