Smashed Road Case of mikes......

Look at this!

A U.P.S. truck ran over this Anvil Mike Case of mine in the parking lot at Westlake Audio in Los Angeles a few years ago!!! Inside - One of my priceless Neumann U-47's. (That I bought new in 1954 .) NOT A MARK ON THE MICROPHONE!!!

Nice one, ouch!!

Thank goodness the mic was ok, sure does show why its important to invest in good qaulity cases thumbsup - I bet your heart sank when you saw that after the truck had pulled away.
