Default Re: Pelican cases

A few notes on Pelican cases (I'm a fan). There are a some pretty good deals out there (writing pre-Christmas 2018). I just got a new Pelican IM2500 from a big retailer selling on eBay for $130 shipped with the pick-and-pluck foam. This is a lot of protection for instruments I don't want to buy again.

I recently got a 1605 which fits SSP and BP sets in one case.

Speaking of the foam, I very much like using it. If you search the web, including YouTube, you'll see a DIY spray treatment of the foam which will form it into, essentially, one piece with a product called Plasti-Dip. I'm planning on trying it once the weather warms enough.

The bottom layer of my first IM2500 is pictured below:
