    Does anyone have a solution for transporting gooseneck microphones? I need to carry 8 to 12 of them for meetings my channel covers and I can’t find a good way to transport them. I’d like something that can be rolled and has padding to keep mic necks from getting bent – does anyone know of anything like that?

    Thanks!

    By the way, the mics we’re using are Shure MX412D/C goosenecks like the ones at the link below:

    We use the same Shure MX 418 (just longer than yours). I had a custom case that holds 16 mics made at Kangaroo Case in Dallas several years ago. I took another old molded camera case, and had them cut custom foam to put in it to hold 6 more of those mics.

    Thank you Jack McGee for the tip! I contacted the company for a quote.

    No problem. They are located in a very cool old building. The case they made for us is 41′ x 22″ x 28″. Has two rollers on the long end, and recessed handles on other end. There are 8 mics (4 rows of opposing mics) in a removable upper tray, and 8 below. All surrounded by foam.
