Protecting expensive microphones

Protecting expensive mikes:

I’m getting back into this after 20 years and I am quickly
getting a large collection of mikes.

Need some advice getting up to speed as I want to protect this rather
large investment. (addes up quickly @ 2,000 - 5,000 each).

Are you using temperature control only?
Are you using temperature and humidity control?
Off the shelf or custom built cases?

Anything new in the last 20 years?
Any good links or threads to read?


I want to address this now, rather than worry.
The microphone you help save, will be mine!

Thanks,

There's some good info about proper micstorage and general mic caretaking at "Klaus Heyne's Mic lab" at www.prosoundweb.com

According to him, all you need is a plastic bag... stike

Thanks:

Sounds too easy. I was expecting something more complex but if
plastic bags do it I will happily go for the bags. heh
