I ask a version of this question 3 months ago and got 1 response.
(Either you don’t need to do anything special, or no one really knows
what to do.) I haven’t sorted this out yet.

The thread was :Protecting expensive microphones

I am just trying to be helpful and I’ll be watching for new info
,if posted, that will help me as well.

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!
