Thanks! Thats good to know. I had talked to Liz at Audiopile awhile back about a mic case. We decided that my d-series wouldn't fit according to the published dimensions. Now that I know they'll fit, I'll be ordering one from them soon. I've done the zippered bags in a briefcase style case for way too long now.

I use pelican cases and keep the mics in zipper bags or crown royal sacks. By the time you get them all in there they don't bounce around too much. My di's go in there as well.


Yep, me too, especially now that I get to shlep the mics through the airport.

The bonus is that the Pelican w/mics in bags holds more mics than my old mic box.

I suppose I'd have a more-traditional box (like the kits with drawers) if I was a system provider.

I used to use an EWI mic case, but it was a little bulky, and didn't like touring. So, for tour everything goes in my 1015 Pelican.

For home use, I have an EWI work box, and the top draw holds all the mics & DI's, in their bags.

I'm with Evan. At home we have a Drawer case (EWI works or whatever case company you prefer) with foam inserts in 3 drawers and DI's in the 4th. On tour I roll with the pelican. Takes anything you throw at it and you can carry onto a plane.

+3, For festivals, my 4 drawer workbox goes out, it contains my full mic kit. For smaller gigs, the necessary mics get pulled from the big case, put in their bags, and tossed in a foam lined Pelican 1510. I used the EWI M024 for several years with good results, albeit a little awkward to carry.

The band I toured with uses the EWI mic case.  It's been around the country several times, tossed by band members and local loaders, and has only minor scuffs (last time I saw it).  For fly in gigs and international tours we scaled back the mic inventory and fit it all in a Pelican style case.  I carried that all over Australia, Japan, and the UK and the mics, IEMs, and other accessories were just fine.

I went the other direction because I have not had to deal with any fly dates. I got the larger EWI mic box with the wheels. It is large enough that I can carry a set of cables as well. For a walkup show I just have to grab the mic cases and a bag of stands and I have my whole stage setup.


For what it is worth I have not seen any evidence of the mics moving around in the box.
