I've got a couple of these:

one I drilled the ends out and keep my VM44 bodies in with a short pair of XLR's plugged into and then can use the active cable /collettes  while the bodies and connectors are protected.

That's exactly what I did with my old MBHO 603a bodies/actives/XLRs! Worked great and kept my MBHO bodies and stuff in tip top shape ;D

I seem to remember reading somewhere that cigar cases are not really good for keeping mics in because they are designed to prevent the cigars from drying out (? I don't smoke, what do I know.... But they are called "humidor"?). The upshot that I remember is that a case that breathes is better.

Of course the difference might be in short term transportation to and from a gig and long term storage at home.

Can someone clarify this for me?

Regards, C.

One of the German resellers of the Cigar Caddy / Passatore / S3 case states this humidor was "completely neutral" (without using the separately available Spanish cedar plank / veneer).

That said, I keep my mics in their original cases and use these Cigar Caddy cases on location only.

"Zum Aufpreis von € 5.- liefern wir ein für ein Zigarrenbett maßgefertigtes Aromaklötzchen aus Spanischer Zeder. [...] Damit erreichen Sie in diesem ansonsten völlig neutralen Humidor den Tabakaromen erhaltenden typischen Humidorduft. Zudem dient dieser Aromaklotz perfekt als Befeuchter - einfach kurz mit entmineralisiertem Wasser benetzen, abwischen und in den Caddy legen. Das reicht für mehrere Wochen Befeuchtung und die Zigarren werden nicht überfeuchtet. (Den im Deckel des Caddy eingebaute Mini-Befeuchter sollten Sie keinesfalls benutzen, da ansonsten die Zigarren direkt unter dem Befeuchter Schaden durch partielle Überfeuchtung nehmen)."
