I was looking around for a mic cab to go in the machine room right off the control room in my new studio. Everything was pretty expensive and not really ideal, I wnded up getting a fairly cheap ikea cabinet hacking it up and drilled some holes to mount a ikea light system in it. It's all wired so no battery changing etc. I think it turned out pretty good!

Thanks ericn! thats a huge compliment coming from you! I also noticed that for some reason the embedded vid blowwws the saturation out. click the link to see it on YT for a less eye melting version of the vid lol
Great looking display cabinet. I feel safer with this this.
Ha I had the opportunity to one up you. My building was originally a bank. I looked at one of the “storage spaces” in the basement as a studio space before COVID, the one I really wanted had a small walk-in vault with working door! Just make sure you have those Silica packets with the mics, Those things keep moisture in better than they keep people out.

Very pretty! No way could I fit my mic collection into one of those though....
thank you, I love to pretty lol ... and that's pretty impressive if you got enough heavy hitters to overfill 6 shelves! I only display the good ones, keep the work horses in the drawer
Ah, that does cut it down a bit.... but if you include the "historical relics" it does get a bit bigger. Odd pieces like my favorite harp mic, a Shure 545L, which was the transformerless, "lavalier" (hence the "L") version of the Unidyne III, which also had the cord built in. I happen to have a pristine one, which I got cheap, in the box, "NOS", at a studio sale.
