Taking the plane with my amp

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have to take the plan with my K2 amp.

I'd like to know if some of you already did that. I am quite worried about security check, last time I was carrying speakers and they opened my case (they left a note). The problem here is that they won't be able to open the amp.

So do you have any advice ?

Do you think it is possible to take it as a cabin baggage ?

Thanks, Greg.

I know of people that travel with electronic equipment all the time.

I would put it in a good ATA style case and check it as luggage. TSA may open the case to check it but that's what they already do with most luggage.

Usually an amp is already to large, for a carry on, so I wouldn't want to try it. (who wants to lug an amp around an airport anyways :D ). Even if you could carry it on the worst case would be they would stop you, at the X-ray, and ask you to turn it on.

Thanks for you advice.

Yeah I wanted to try to take it as a cabin baggage but I think you're right, I am going to find a case and put it as a checked baggage.

Thanks, Greg.

The amp should handle being shipped in an ATA case just fine as long as they are mounted correctly and the Gorillas handling the luggage don't drop it out the back of the airplane. :lol:
