...there are an array of different sized "pick n''ratingNumCount''ratingNumCount''ratingNumCount''ve got a bunch of mics in cases all crammed in a trunk. It''ratingNumCount''re including SDC and ribbon mics...my home studio room is very small and I''m mobile and secure...my associates do the same...cheap, efficient and customizable...that works in my book...

...now if I was decorating a serious studio space, funky antique pieces and industrial fixtures are way cool (been there, done that), but for cheap and efficient storage in a small home studio, these $20-25 cases are hard to beat...different strokes for different folks, I guess...

I made a case for my mics...just can''s layers of foam hot-glued together, then I covered it in the fabric with spray glue. Not too hard to do, but time-consuming.

Around Christmas, I have to go to record about 150 miles from here.

I may look into the $32 things, thanks.

I still want a card catalog for the studio though heh

...understood...one of the studios I used to frequent back in NY had an antique "red" steel mechanics tool chest (about 4 ft. high) to store all kinds of assorted gear...that was real eye-candy!

...I like the card catalog idea for a real studio space...how about one of these...

Besides some old cast iron pans and some unglazed clay, all my stuff is AllClad. (But I used to live in Pittsburgh, they''ratingNumCount''re in Cannonsburg... almost a suburb.)

You know, that''s the good stuff for cases. I cut out the outline on one level, then glued another layer of foam to form fit them. If you plan on covering in Fabric like I did, a carpet knife cuts the foam real well...looks real finished and clean when the fabric is on. Really inenexpensive that way without having to buy large sheets or pay through the nose at McMaster.

I had to look it up, here''ratingNumCount''t want to pay close to $100 for a wood case though. Thought about buying some MXL 604''ratingNumCount''t want to pay close to $100 for a wood case though. Thought about buying some MXL 604''re still great when you need portability... ) and built the rolling mic case I showed above.

Do you want the finger-jointed cases, or just nice looking wood cases? Because I was just working with a nice hardwood called Ipe. It is very much like teak, quite hard. But very straight grain, and easy to work. (There are cautions in working with Ipe, look it up if you decide to play with it.) You could make your own cheaply. A 5/4" by 4" by 16 foot long piece cost me about $35. Milled into three strips, that would yield a bunch of very cool mic boxes.

Still, a cheaper more practical answer for the home studio would be those Steelcase office drawer units. 4 drawer units cost me about $50 used, and hold a lot of mics. I cut carpet for the bottom of the drawers, and that worked perfectly. No need for foam or cutouts or anything extra fancy.

Go to Home Depot or Lowes. I''s too much work for you, then go for the $20 aluminum flight case. I really do have to laugh at people who spend hundreds on Pelican cases as if they honestly think they need that level of protection to move microphones from their car to a venue or their studio.

(I''ll do for now)

I bought a roadcase for CDs off ebay (originally had four compartments), ripped out two of the dividers to make one big compartment in which I put foam (3 one inch layers) and cut out holes for my mics and used the smaller compartment for mic clips and shockmounts. I also have a thinnish sheet of wood cut to the size of the large compartment which is backed with foam to form an internal lid which fits over the microphone compartment to hold the mics in place.
In the lid (not shown), I put in velcro loops for 8 mic leads.

Took a bit of work, but was one of the best things I''ratingNumCount''t want to pay close to $100 for a wood case though. Thought about buying some MXL 604''d try a cigar store. I know of a few that just leave their empty wooden cigar boxes on a table free for the taking...or just buy a few nice boxes of cigars and smoke your way to a new sdc case.
