I know it's not advisable to keep microphones in suspension systems that use rubber bands; the bands stretch and need to to replaced.
But what about storing microphones in the Rycote Kits with the newer Lyre suspension? It's plastic and seems very sturdy and less prone to damage.
I'm thinking of keeping my mics in the blimp, as I'll be using them at least 4 times a week this summer. It seems like taking the mics in and out of the kit each time would not only be tedious but unnecessary and would increase the risk of scratching the mics' bodies.
As a side note, I just got the Rycote AE Windscreen Kit to run Schoeps MS. It's a terrific kit, especially with the connbox. It's also smaller than I was expecting.
