SKB Corporation announces a new line of injection molded mic cases that will house a variety of the most popular mics. The 3i-0907-MC6 holds six mics in a very compact case while the 3i-2011-MC16 holds 16 mics stored vertically and the 3i-2015-MC24 stores 24 mics in a rolling case.
The new line is based around SKB’s successful 3i series cases. 3i Series injection molded waterproof cases are constructed of ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin and feature a gasketed, waterproof and airtight, submersible design (IP67) that is resistant to corrosion and impact damage. Its continuous molded-in hinge, patented "trigger release" latch system, comfortable, snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handle, secure stacking, and automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C) all contribute to its military grade design.
The interior foam is cut on the new water jet machine SKB is now using to cut custom foam and design new products. Each case has convoluted foam in the lids. The 3i-0907-MC6 is allows for 3 mics to stored horizontally on two separate layers of foam. The 0907-MC6 measures 9” x 7” x 6” deep and is the most compact 6-mic case on the market.
The 3i-2011-MC16 houses up to (16) mics stored in the vertical position. The two step mic holes are designed to secure any type of mic and the vertical storage provides instant access. In addition the case includes a generous padded storage compartment for cables and mic clips. The 3i-2015-MC24 is the largest mic case and holds (24) mics vertically and is extra deep to accommodate longer condenser mics. This case includes a large padded accessory compartment for storage of cables, mic clips or other mic essentials. The 3i-2015-MC24 also includes an injection molded handle along with in-line skate wheels. The new mic cases are covered by SKB’s unsurpassed no-fault Million Mile Guaranty™ (Lifetime Warranty).
The 3i-0907-MC6, 3i-2011-MC16 and the 3i-2015-MC24 will be available in February 2010 from authorized SKB dealers.
