My mic locker contains a few more than I actually need. I've sold off a few in the past couple of years and am continually trying to decide which one to let go of next.

Actually I have 3 heads, 2x UM70 and 1x M71. The M71 sounds very similar to one of the UM70s, while the other UM70 sounds slightly different. I talked to Andreas Grosser (RIP) about that and he said that the sound differences originates in the state of deterioration of the PVC in the capsule´s membrane. It hardens and hence sounds harder with less lowend and less "HiFi" highend. These are different colors for me and I use the head according to it´s sound character. Therefore I made a stickers on the storage boxes so that I know which capsule has which character. Since all that has to do with the actual state of the capsule, I don´t think that a comparison between UM70 and M71 can be generalized.

I use a PR-35 these days... had to replace it after the first one was destroyed... I'm afraid my primary guitar send to the house lately comes through a powered monitor from a Strymon box....

Multiple mics picked up this year:
dynamic - Beyer M88, EV ND468
condenser - Aston Origin
ribbon - Nohype LRM-V, (2) Monoprice LR100

The three ribbons have so far been my favorites of the bunch.

Hope you've got some kind of moisture absorber in those bags unless they're breathable.

Shure SM57
Sennheiser e609
Audio Technica ATM31
Well my studio sure has grown in the past decade. Here's my new current list:

AKG C414B XLII
AKG C451 B
Audio Technica AT-4033 (vintage approx. 1990, not a reissue)
Audio Technica Pro70 Lavalier mic
Audix i5
Earthworks M23R
Electro Voice RE20
Lewitt LCT 240 PRO (2)
Lewitt LCT 441 FLEX
Lewitt MTP 440 DM (2)
Mojave Audio MA-201fet
Neumann KM-184 (2)
Neumann KMS-105
Royer R-121
Sennheiser MD-421
Sennheiser e609
Shure Beta 52a
Shure SM57 (7)
Shure SM58s
Shure SM7b
Sonarworks SoundID Reference Measurement mic

The Lewitt's are my most recent mics and they always deliver the goods. The LCT 240 PRO's have been surprisingly good for electric guitar cabs, as are my pair of MTP 440 DM's when paired with a 57. The 240's deliver without having to be paired with a 57 so I'm really pleased with them.

Here for the gear
Started 20years ago with a SP C1 (total fall damage) and two Behringer C2 first charge wich where amazing for its price of 29€ in 2002, but someone grapped it at a occupy movement concert but therefore i found a SM58 on the stage, as well owned a SE X1T for 100bugs what i stupidly sold. Now my "low cost" collection has grown, my total costs for these used, in supersale, as donation 11 mics were something around 500€+ Mindprint DiPort 560€
I know somekind of an upgrade costs me at least 500 and more for one condenser mic, or preamp, but at the moment I´m still happy with my stuff.

2x SE Electronics H1 v2 handheld condenser (grapped it after made a recordings with a borrowed SE1a pair)
2x Fame Audio Single Pro omni SDC
Rode Nt2a
Studio Projects C1mk2
MXL V69 caps modded

Golden Age Project D2 mk2
Sennheiser E845
Shure SM58
JTS NX7 - as well a demo campaign present

I am sad because for many years we had a cat in our mike locker and she is now sadly deceased. But there are still big wads of cat hair in with my RCAs.
