Cigar Caddy for 4 AKG C480/460's
« on: May 10, 2017, 12:10:56 AM »
I am almost finished with my rig setup for the year (at least).  However I purchased new mics and need a better carrying solution in my bag.  I have a pair of AKG c460 pre-amps and a pair of c480 preamps (with ck61 & ck63 caps) and am looking for a small case for them to fit inside.  According to specs, stacked side by side they are about 3.3" wide, but the caddy's allow some space between them.  I wonder if anyone has a specific cigar caddy they recommend to hold all 4 of these mics.  I am looking at the 3400 series on Amazon which states (Dimensions (Inside): 7.88" x 3.97" x 1.55").  It appears they would fit, but I would love to have confirmation from someone who knows first had before I purchase.  Here are the two I am looking at.

I used the 5 stick caddy for awhile but it was annoying that the 4 didn't sit right and I would use thin strips of foam between the bodies to prevent them from rubbing together.  I ended up just using two separate 2 stick versions and now use the 5 stick for my 414's.
