An excellent low-cost 6u case for a eurorack modular system-the Tip Top Audio Mantis is extremely light and easy to use and provides a great power system.
Sleek lines reminiscent of an experimental racer and a sophisticated bracing system for flexible configuration. Lay it flat on your desk, prop it behind your keyboard, or stand it up for that wall-of-synth feel Ì´Ì_ÌÎÌÌÎÌÕ any way you use it, you'll love how easily the Mantis lets you access 208HP of your favorite Eurorack modules. What's more, the Mantis comes loaded with a Zeus power supply and rails, so you're ready to rock right out of the box.
True to Tiptop Audio's reputation for innovative design, the Mantis Eurorack case combines a streamlined look with incredible ergonomics, so you can position your modules however you like. A set of folding legs and a flip-out prop let you place the Mantis flat, prop it at 45 degrees, or stand it up all the way. Whether you're a tabletop tweaker, a keyboard performer, or an old-school wall-of-synth guy, you'll love this case.
Balancing capacity with portability, the Mantis offers a total of 208HP of Eurorack module mounting space while weighing a mere 6.5 lbs. The mounting space is divided into two gangs of 104HP to keep the footprint small while making patching extra convenient. Z-Rails mounting rails provide standard Eurorack spacing so you never have to deal with annoying sliding nuts or goofed up module spacing. What's more, despite its slim profile, the Mantis offers a 50mm mounting depth to accommodate most Eurorack modules out there.
Sick of calculating current consumption? Want a simple, load-it-up-and-go Eurorack system? Here you go!

Along with the 3000ma Mantis universal power adapter, this rig is ready to take you anywhere.
