Haha!. I have 10 bags for sale...

The problem with them is that you can't see what mic is which through the bag. Glad I didn't throw all the gallon baggies out!!!

LOL! :-)

I'm looking at what I have...after trying a lot of different things, I really like Hefty "Jumbo Storage Slider" 2.5 Gallon, when a large mic is going to sit on the stand over night.

It's big enough to fit over most large condenser mics AND the shock mount, and you can just pull the slider all the way up snug to the mic stand.

I like the gallon bags for when mics go in their boxes, or for when smaller mics stay on stands over night.

You'll want to check those bags for fabric shedding.

I do a fair amount of 4038 reribbons, had one in a couple weeks back that had red and black fibers all over the inside of the microphone.

In talking with the owner of the mic, he said he kept it in a red Crown Royal bag someone had given him.

This was the only time I've seen this, so the blue fabric bags that come with the Coles mics do not have the shed problem.

Prior to this experience, I would have said a Crown Royal bag would be just fine.

Regards

Jon

The classic bag has the problem too, it just has to be substantially old. I used to work at a place that kept all of the dynamics in Crown bags, and they really sucked after awhile.

One more thought - even better than Glad or Hefty for mic box liners, is to buy some acid free Mylar bags, with an open end. Love those for that.

Nice of you to chime in, Jon.  I have two of your microphones.  They have been great microphones, and not just "for the money".  I have the 46MXL.

But you can't make pants out of them that you can wear! I can repurpose my bags, but you can't. I just gave 6 to the woman down the street who wanted to use them for sack lunch bags. Maybe you could do that. I'm afraid that Crown Royal bags will make a bad impression at middle school. What do you think?

A lot of pros and cons have been raised here, but I'm going to stick with the Crown Royal bags...

because they are regal.

so there...

somewhere I have a pic of Abbey Road's pile of 4038's in a metal file drawer. I leave mine out on the instruments most of the time and when not in use they're in clear baggies, not sealed. 15 yrs so far w/o a hitch. So maybe we're getting a bit too precious with them? they are some of my favorite mics.
