    Not really anal just stupid, I cant find stuff if I don't have some sort of minimal organization. It's still really a mess, just as I said "semi" organized.

    All good stuff. The exception is the ribbon mic if you have one. Generally it is said you should keep these vertical to prevent ribbon 'sag'.
    Probably best to give them a dedicated stand and just slip a bag over it.

    All my ribbon mics are in their cases, and the cases stored so the mics inside sit vertically.

    Aw, you should have said 'stuck h on our keyboards'.
    That would have been gold.

    Thanks for all the ideas, guys. Now I've got some ideas bubbling around in my head and now I've gotta figure out what works best for me.

    All of my mics are in cases and are separated by type. All the true condensers have plastic bags as well as a soft lint-free bag and are in their respective attache style cases which are housed in a large set of cabinets in the studio. I also have a metal two drawer file cabinet for mic storage. The ribbons are all stored vertically and are in their own boxes. My Cathedral Pipes Seville ribbon comes in an aluminum case and has a high-end wine storage bag over it. It's how they come! The attache cases have all their foam cut to fit and some are large enough to house three sometimes four mics. I have a serious investment in these and I also loan them to my producer friends so they have to be travel-worthy. And yes...I have a lot of mics....

    Foam lined mic box that holds a dozen vertically, and a centre compartment just bundled in as they fit. My studio mics are currently mostly on stands, or laying on top of a flightcase in a sort of mess. This pretty much sums me up. Once the mic box is full, everything else is haphazard. I don't treat any of the mics, apart from the ribbons very carefully at all. Of course, I can never find the ones I want, never remember where I put any of them, but as I don't turn computers off ever, if I can avoid it, with mics always wired in and on stands - I can run in, press record and go.
