good, sturdy case, but check mic lengths
This is a good, sturdy mic case, and although I haven't used it much yet, its construction feels very solid, and looks like it will hold up for many years. The main factor in my choosing this case was the large storage area on the left — room enough for all of the odds and ends that I carry around with my sound system, and of course mic and line cables.
The pictures didn't show it, but this case has two handles, not one. In addition to the handle on the front shown in the pictures, there is also a smaller handle on the left side — I have found this to be very convenient.
My one reservation with this case is that it closes quite snugly on some of my longer microphones. The foam pockets are about 15.5cm deep, and the top lid is about 5cm deep, filled with a compressible but dense eggcrate foam. A Sennheiser e835 (vocal mic) is about 18cm long; a Shure PG81 (instrument mic, condenser) is about 19cm long; a Sennheiser MD735 (vocal mic) is just under 20cm long. The MD735 might be too long for this case, but it usually lives in another case anyway. The lid does close completely, but the foam in the top lid is compressing to the point of some small tension. I'm not worried about it damaging mics or case, because the foam does compress, but it would help if the case were just one or two centimeters taller.
Note that the interior dimensions listed on SKB's site for this case refer to the dimensions at the top rim. The sides are very slightly tapered, so 11.44 inches of width at the top tapers down to about 11 inches width at the bottom. When shopping for a mic case, I wanted one in which I could store a particular box that holds my SPL meter. That box is 11.25 inches long, so I knew that it would be a close fit with this case. I ended up having to wedge the box in and deform it slightly, which was perfectly okay for the box in question, but other shoppers who need particular dimensions for the storage area will want to be sure to take the tapering of the interior dimensions into consideration.
In summary, this case rocks, but it could stand to be 1–2cm taller. It it made of quality materials and has a solid construction, and I look forward to years and years of service from it.
