I hope this thread winds up informative for someone one day.
I bought the hardcase from mpcstuff and I think I like it so far.
Shipping was 24 dollars, it's pretty big, like medium sized duffelbag big. total, with discounted retail price of 130, i spent 153 american pesos. its a little too heavy for having only a handle (I wish these had some wheels and an extended handle) but the build is solid which is why i bought it. I'm pretty sure the plastic will last forever and that its sure to endure blows during flight or travel.
The inside seems sturdy, with two foam top/bottom innerlinings.
included was an interior foamy brick that you can personalize for your mpc for extra side cushioning - which i think is especially important to avoid unnecessary stress on buttons and faders.
I did the best I could to trim this down but i'm not crazy that i had to do this because I was scared I might **** it up.
after trimming down some it's still not a perfect fit for the mpc2500... extra foamy piece sits a little janky against the mpc. pokes out a bit unevenly along the front and back of the mpc. i have to tuck in the mpc quite a bit which i don't mind at the moment, but it seems a little questionable as to whether this soft foamy material will hold up the test against time.
i'll let ya'll kno.
