More Info on SKB Cases
From instrument cases to industrial transit / protection
SKB cases started from humble beginnings. In fact, the first case – used to transport a guitar – was manufactured in a garage in California in 1977.
Over the next 30 years, SKB cases have earned themselves a reputation for being amongst the toughest, most durable and feature packed equipment and transit cases currently available.
Producing a selection of vacuum, rotational and injection moulded cases, SKB cases cater for a huge range of industries and applications. Whilst this still includes cases for musical instruments, the range of specialist SKB cases also incorporates options for sports, photo and video, drones, electronics, and military applications.
This is also in addition to the range of standard industrial cases. With the SKB i Series range being seen as true Peli case alternative, the range of rotomolded cases and rack units also provides competition to the Hardigg options.
Put simply, whatever your application or industry, there is an SKB case to suit.
Custom SKB Cases
For the majority of SKB cases (and particularly the SKB iSeries) there is a wide range of customisation options that you can choose from. This is addition to the standard range of colours (including, uniquely, a very bright pink) and perhaps the widest range of different sizes too.
Whist accessories including shoulder straps, lid stays, divider sets (similar to the Peli Trekpak offering), organisers, and even bezel kits for mounting electronics are all to be considered, there are further options beyond even this.
Whilst standard cubed foam inserts are available for nearly all SKB cases, the inclusion of custom foam inserts can really take the performance and protection to the next level.
Tailored to be an exact fit to not just the case but also your specific products, tools, or equipment, Plastazote inserts can also be manufactured in your brand colours, utilise a shadowboard effect (aiding productivity) and include laser etched branding and instructions. They can even be designed to include calculated levels of cushioning protection.
Therefore, if your business requires high performance protective cases – and are looking for an alternative to the Peli case options – SKB cases with foam inserts could be the perfect solution.

However, if you cannot find the specific information you need then simply get in touch – one of our protective case experts will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Are SKB Cases any good?
SKB cases are one of the largest and most well-respected case manufacturers. Their cases have been developed across more than 3 decades, with various refinements over the years making them cost effective, exceptionally tough and hardwearing, and boasting a wide range of great features.
Who makes SKB cases?
Established in 1977 by company founders Dave Sanderson and Steve Kottman, SKB Corporation manufactured its first case (a guitar case) in a small Anaheim (California) garage. Today, SKB is recognized globally as an industry leader in the design and manufacture of moulded plastic transport cases.
What are SKB cases made from?
Since approximately 2006, the majority of SKB cases have been manufactured using a proprietary blend of hi impact co-polymer polypropylene. This plastic material is as much as 3 times stronger than plastic that the majority of SKBs’ competitors use for comparable injection moulded cases.
Are there different type of SKB case?
SKB use vacuum forming, rotational moulding and injection moulding in the manufacture of their cases. This means there is a wide variety of case options, including the i Series, R Series, S Series and Roto X cases (amongst others). And this is before considering the specialist cases for specific applications (such as sports, musical instruments, drones etc.).
What colour SKB cases are available?
Different SKB case ranges are offered in different colours (with nearly all being available in black). However the iSeries also offers green, tan, yellow, orange and – uniquely – a bright pink (making it more noticeable if a case is missing or being stolen).
Can I purchase SKB cases with foam inserts?
Virtually all of the SKB cases available can be enhanced with custom foam inserts. These will provide the highest levels of protection for any application / requirement.
Which are best – SKB cases vs Pelican?
There is very little to choose between SKB cases and Pelican cases. Both offer outstanding protection, a huge range of sizes and customisation options, and have undergone extensive testing. Which option you choose really depends on which has the most appropriate size for your equipment, or which appearance you prefer.
