To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
OK, so it's obviously ridiculously overpriced - it is, after all, a piece of moulded plastic. But if the value of something is what somebody is willing to pay for it, I guess it offers value. It fits my new, shiny, beautiful Maschine MK3 perfectly snugly, offers good protection from liquid spills, and feels sturdy enough to withstand most reasonable impacts. I do think for the price it should be thicker material and completely rigid - there is a touch of give in the centre, and I doubt it would survive being stood/sat on for example, but I think it would withstand say a mug or a heavy book being dropped on it - hard to tell. Ultimately I've just spent £470 on an incredible piece of kit, which sits in a busy environment (the studio doubling as a home office, with coffee cups flowing aplenty) and I judge it to be worth paying over the odds for something made to fit, and which doesn't interrupt my workflow (I considered a hard case which is about the same price or less - but having to unpack every time I wanted to make a beat would likely mean I used it less - with this I can just whip off the cover in a second and get going). You may judge differently but them's the breaks.
This product covers all the essential parts of your Maschine MK3 and keeps the dust off it (the MK3 attracts dust like a wormhole in space) it does not keep the dust off if it already has dust on it (lol) but, the only thing it is missing is some sort of clip the keeps it attached on the MK3 when you travel with it. Currently, it stays on using only gravity and the small vacuum it creates when it slides on snuggly. You will need a flight case of some kind to travel with this securely. It is essentially a button protector and dust cover very useful in a studio environment.
I bought this product because the one i got for my sp 404sx fitted good and thought the quality would be a standard but i actually have to force it on. it should just drop in its place but it doesnt! instead i have to force it on my brand new maschine mk3 that i wanted to keep perfect and pristine... now im sure the edges are gonna get some damage and that suuuuuuuuuuuuucks! Price is also too high!
Just like the title says it's an air-tight perfect fit and protects the Maschine Mk3. I just wish it didn't scuff so easily and ruin the nice transparent clarity it has when it's first out of the packaging.
