Title: Wireless Mic Custom Foam- Rack Draw Style
Post by: Brandon Scopel on September 30, 2015, 10:25:28 am
Hey all,

I have just purchased three of the ULXP handheld/body pack combos. They all came with rack mount hardware so they will be racked with a antenna combiner soon. I have seen people with rack drawers that have custom cutouts for 4 handhelds and 4 body packs. Where can I find these? I see Audiopile has the pick&pluck stuff, but that gets sloppy after awhile. I don't have any rack drawers that are not in use, so if it comes as a package that's fine.

Thoughts?

Any case company can do this for you. My favorite is my old friend Jed at JXL custom cases: 615-390-0342

I forgot who did our drawer for us.  I do remember if they don't have a mic template that you have to trace it for them.  I believe it is cut with a water jet.

I am going to call Jed too because I forgot who did ours.  I think they were in Youngstown.

Just buy one of these:

http://www.gatorcases.com/p/217102-2322/grw-drwwrlss (http://www.gatorcases.com/p/217102-2322/grw-drwwrlss)

I have a couple, and while they're a little heavy, they're absolutely great. I had to trim the foam on the beltpack side of the drawer, since the ULX packs are a little tight in there, and I pulled out the AA battery foam on the other side to make room for 9V batteries. The drawers make it look like I'm super organized.

FWIW, I'll be pulling a UA844 antenna distro out of one of my racks soon, if you want to make a deal.

I've used this one before with good results as well.  It was for an AKG rig so I didn't have to customize for batteries.

I too like this drawer, but dang it's heavy!

I do like the looks of that, it also is not just for a single type of wireless.

I'm definitely interested in the 844.

I have been very pleased with custom foam work by My Case Builder
http://www.mycasebuilder.com/ (http://www.mycasebuilder.com/)

I bought cases with custom foam from them for several pair of recording mics and they do a great job for a reasonable price.  If you buy a drawer from one of the may vendors who sell them, you could have the inserts made by these folks and have a great package.
