There's doors on the locker, that shut like a cupboard.  I have had no issues with dust.  I do keep my ribbons covered, though.

If you want to hang them, you just angle the right sized dowels in the back of the locker.  The quick clips fit snugly over them.

It's a good idea.
Thus far, I've stuck with the "line up boxes" technique.

korby and peluso both do mods and will add a cek12 capsule to the 414. Any idea how they sound. I have found 414eb's with the teflon capsule for $500.

We've got 2 EB's and 2 B-ULS at the studio.
The EB's have sounded quite brittle to me lately... contrary to what all the posts in this thread have mentioned.  I wonder if the capsules have been compromised or affected at all?  Humidity damage over time?  Any clues/suggestions?

I've been ignoring the EB's and just using the BULS, and feeling like I'm committing a crime.  Perhaps its time to do a serious comparison and see whats up with the EB's.

Be careful Many (most of the one i've seen)  414 eb's  like JJ  pointed out have:

NYLON/TEFLON?  CK12 capsules  (!!)

I have four NYLON/TEFLON?? and we use them on guitars toms etc. they are better than ok.    (ours sound a little better than our b-uls models) a utility mic.

THE BRASS RING CK12 414eb  version is one of the best mics I have ever heard,  you can fit 4 of them in your back pack and get on a plane---    they sound incredible--
WAY  better than the non brass  -   a baby c12 - easy to mount and travel

please excuse,  I see this is an old post but I think some may miss this important distinction
