Title: Made in the USA HK67 HK87 HK47 style capsules..AND NOW HK12 !!!!
Post by: tskguy on September 12, 2012, 08:52:21 PM
Hi everyone

Moving forward please order through my new website..

http://www.heisermanaudio.com/



HK12 is in production! Price is $425 plus shipping and Paypal fees.


 My K47 style capsule, It’s a bit of hybrid capsule, a mix between a 67 and 47 from the construction but 100% the sound of the 47 style capsules everyone loves. The hole pattern is the same as the 47 but uses 2 back plates like a 67. I think it sounds fantastic.

 ;D
 Ok here is the deal. My capsules are machined and tuned here in the USA!!! The Mylar was coated here in Chicago using Neumann specs. Not only that I will make sure you are happy!! Regardless of why I will make sure the capsule you buy meets your expectations.
So the price for the 87 and 67 and the new HK47 is 250 plus shipping, and I will ship anyway you want.  PayPal is the preferred method of payment.  And wait!! There is more...I will also re skin any capsule as well that has a 23mm target of gold on the Mylar.  That’s most u67, u87 k47 type capsules. Please contact me for details regarding having a capsule re-skinned.

Thanks,

TSKGUY

Got my 2nd one from tskguy and threw it in to the mic. here's the clip I did. I'm very happy. Very very happy. No pop filter, so there's one faux pas that you can hear. Going into a Golden Age (stock) Pre73 DLX into an mBox2. Thank Eric. He took the time to tweak and tune the capsule till I was happy. Who on the planet does that? Do you think this sounds as good as I do? Polystyrenes and Cinemag transformer.

seems like this capsule sounds way better than the RK-87 stuff

how about a discount for two capsules ? :D

are you using 6 micron for the diaphragm?

ar you so far impressed by how it stands out against the original?

how is your experience with the head grill since you've done quite some builds now? is it as crucial as it's always said or does the capsule & electronics have 95% of the impact?
Title: Re: Made in the USA U67 and U87 style capsules....
Post by: geekmacdaddy on September 16, 2012, 05:37:47 PM
By all accounts, mine sounds just like the orig, with a bit more presence or definition in the mid range. I'm not going to change a thing. Am I impressed? Impressed, and thrilled. Not any kind of design expert, but I will say that the difference in size of the head basket has little affect if any on the sound.

Post by: tskguy on September 16, 2012, 11:28:52 PM
Mr Attic,
In my opinion the RK-87 is a bit harsh compared to my capsule. My cap still has air and a good mid without the brittle chinese tone you get on some cheaper capsules. I spent a long time on the way my capsule sounds.

Post by: tskguy on October 12, 2012, 02:31:49 PM
Yes, I use 6 micron Mylar. I have information from a very good resource that says the three micron stuff stretches over time and gets sucked to the backplate.

Post by: tskguy on November 09, 2012, 04:46:58 PM
I have been toying with the idea but that capsule is a very complicated piece of machining. Tim is already doing a very nice job with his version so it’s a tuff call.
Happily most of my free time has been making my 67 and 87 style caps! I haven’t had much time to try and make one yet! Stay tuned.

To all people wanting to hear more clips of Eric's awesome capsules. Here are 2 acoustic guitars and 2 vocals recorded with my new DU67 into a SS MP573, no eq or comp anywhere, just pure capsule goodness.
I highly recommend you get these capsules for your U67/U87 builds. They are worth every penny!

Hi  - i replaced my U67 caps with Peluso caps several years ago and have been happy with them. I still have the original neumann caps - do you think there would be a siginificant improvement if i got the old caps resurfaced by you? I also have a KM84 that needs capsule attention - can you help there? thanks

Hi tskguy,

I tried to PM you but your inbox is full.

Hi there,

I would like to order one of your capsules please.

I have been chatting to Chunger and I am starting to order parts for a vintage u87 build.
I am fairly new to mic builds and thought that a 87 style would be the best place to start on a full build. If it goes ok i would like to do a another 87 and a 67. I am going down the route of vintagemicrophonepcbkit 87 pcb's and a T13 transformer with your capsule if poss. I would to get your thought on this? Is this the best way to go ?

I live in the uk so i dont know how much you charge for postage?

If you can let me know the availabilty and cost that would be great and i can paypal you the amount.

Best Regards

Steve

Post by: micaddict on May 08, 2013, 05:24:00 AM
Yeah, an interesting cross breed for sure. And about time someone did it. The K67 has the well-known (deliberate) frequency rise that has to be corrected in the circuit. Some attempts have been made to tame the capsule itself. This can be done to some extent, still flat it is not.
A K47 hole pattern, but with a double backplate seems like a nice "best of both worlds" solution for many of the more straightforward and/or flat plotting circuits. Theoretically, I'd say it couldn't sound exactly like a K47, if only for the phase shift from the double backplate. But I do believe that with some proper hollering this concept could be a hit. Already I'm dying to hear the thing in a C12 circuit. Just one example.

Eric, is there any chance you could come up with a frequency plot?

Ok here is a bit more hk12 info,,

So it is a true ck12 copy. Chambered design 100% true to the original. Here are a few sound clips of the capsule pictured in one of the Chunger Matador c12's with the Chunger head basket as well.
I think it sounds pretty amazing.Clips are actually lined up so you can create a session if you want. The clips are 16/44.1 through a 9098 pre in to pro tools, and are of our friend Wave playing guitar and singing. Let me know what you guys think.

Hey Eric, does the HK12 support isolated back plates?
Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!

Yes for sure both backplates are isolated. Any opinions on th clips by the way??

I think it sounds great!

Are those WAV files raw with no effects?  Can you elaborate:

1) What kind of room they were recorded in?
2) I see the file name for the VOX says "6-inch" so I can get an impression of how close Wave was to the mike.  How about similar details for the mike itself on the guitar?  Where was the mike in relation to the player, etc?
Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!
Post by: tskguy on July 24, 2013, 02:29:59 PM
Yes!!

The wav files are 16 bit 44.1 no effects are processing, The room is a slightly treated maybe 10 by 12 feet in size and yes Dave was 6 inches away in that recording. The guitar was miced off axis at the 12th fret at about 10 inches or more away. Dave wasnt very happy with the strings, he metioned multiple times they were pretty dead. The mic is your kit with the single layer mesh basket that Chunger made. And my c12 proto.

Hey Eric,

Out of fear of not being able to get a CT12 capsule anytime soon and the long waiting list that has built up for that capsule, I purchased 2 RK-12 Capsules for when Chungers ELAM 251 and C12 are available again. My question is will you offer the same re-skin service you currently offer for the 87 and 67?
Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!
Post by: Matador on July 25, 2013, 04:58:26 PM
My eyeball of the RK-12 was that is was a 67-type backplate assembly modified to work with an edge terminated capsule ring...that is certainly not the same as Eric's recreation...

If memory serves, the C12 has a center chamber for establishing a resonance between the two capsule halves which is missing on most copies:  most clones have the holes on each back plate that go through all the way to the other side.
Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!
Post by: tskguy on July 25, 2013, 11:08:05 PM
Matador is completely correct, the original as well as Tim's ck12 are a chambered design that consist of a primary and secondary backplate that creates a pocket of air before the phase holes on the secondary plate. There are some amazing pictures on the web if you do a quick search.
My ck12 is modeled after the original chambered design and is exactly the same or at least as close as I can get it!! Me actually getting these going does involve me doing another run of Mylar coating. I only had a small amount of fully coated mylar for my prototyping of the ck12. So once I have that done I will be able to re skin any edge terminated style capsule. Just not for a little awhile! Keep an eye on this thread for updates.

Thanks all

Eric,

I'm a long time mic moder/builder who goes by another name on some other sites. I dropped out for a while and tried to sign up here, but it looks like someone signed up under my old screen name (wasn't me). Anyway, I'm very interested in both your CK12 style capsules as well as the K47 style. I can pretty much guarantee you can put me down for at least one of each.

Just as long as there is hope I'm fine with a wait of a month or 2. I just didn't wantto be waiting for a year plus like some will have to who are waiting for the other capsule... ;)

Not at all Tim. wasnt trying to offend anyone actually. I tried contacting you through email a few times and never got any response. So like most newbs do, I started asking other members for info in regards to getting on your wait list. Most of the responses i got back lead me to believe it would be a long time before I got my capsule and that there is a long waiting list becauseyou also produce for manufactures too. So my response is more of a relief that i wont have to wait too long before I can complete my projects with a quality capsule thats all.

What's the projected cost?

My projected cost is going to be $350 per capsule not including shipping and Paypal fees.
That's if I can successfully scale my production and keep the consistency in terms of sound..

Eric, a little later than usual, but I got a chance to listen to your C12 samples. I know you appreciate feedback on those and I agree more members should listen and respond to samples. In the end this is what it's all about. Also, a maker will need both confirmation and possible ways of improvement.
I'll focus on the vocal take for now.

Overall, the vocal take sounds pretty good to me. It's on the bright side, but that's totally normal for a C12. It's a little sibilant, too. At least part of that is due to the lifted treble and as such can get EQ-ed out if need be. But there may also be a non-linear part here which would be a little trickier to remove, although de-essing is a common thing nowadays.

The vocal itself is what I would call a pop/rock voice with some gravel on it. This non-electrical or human made distortion adds some noise or escaping air that doesn't translate in resonating sound. Also, it typically takes away some core or clearly ringing mids, if that makes sense. To compensate for this, one would sooner reach for a K47 type capsule than a CK12 type. This will both add core and attenuate breathiness. On the other hand, one could also choose to highlight rather than compensate, especially since many of such singers actually create this distorted sound (while their speaking voices are a lot cleaner). In the latter case, i.e. if one chooses to highlight, one does have to make sure the track will not drown in the mix. But there are several other ways to achieve that.

Oh, and six inches is a good place to start, but many vocalists will come in a little closer.

In short, it does sound promising, but I'd have to hear more samples (female?). I'm not sure yet about the sibilance thing and, as you may know by now, I'm kinda sensitive to that. What I'd love to hear is an A/B with an original CK12 in the same circuit or, more practical and realistic, an A/B with one of Tim's capsules. That is quite a challenge, but I know you have the guts.

Thanks for the feedback!! I really do appreciate it. The next steps for me are exactly what you suggested. I happen to live in a great city full of engineers and recording professionals and I am  happy to say I have access to both an original C12 ( a very good one) as well as a Chungador C12 clone that contains one of Tim's capsule. I also was lucky enough to receive an early original brass CK12 capsule that I pulled all of my measurements from.  Side by side testing with some differing sources as well as some frequency sweeps are all in the works I will post some samples of that as well. Once I am confident in the sound I will start producing.

Thanks again!!!

Hi Eric,

Exciting times for you regarding the CK12 project. Congratulations for having the guts to take it on!

Regarding the sound samples, it is hard to judge the quality of the microphone when the samples aren't recorded in an ideal acoustical space. When I listen to your samples I hear a small room that isn't particularly flattering to the source material, though I suspect that the mic and capsule are probably fine.

I don't think that most folks here are limited by their gear so much as by their recording environment. The classic recordings sound great because of the talent, gear, AND the acoustical properties of the room in which the recording takes place. Thanks to you and the other contributors at this forum, good gear has become affordable for anyone with soldering skills.

Kind regards,
Scott

Post by: micaddict on August 01, 2013, 04:03:26 PM
Yup, the room (generic) plays a big part. It's more important than many realize. And as the distance between microphone and source increases, so does the influence of the room, of course. At six inches (vocal sample) the room will already be noticeable. And when recording acoustic guitar, the distance will likely be greater, especially if only one mic is used.

Scott, I have a feeling you have access to a decent room or two ...
Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!
Post by: Matador on August 01, 2013, 04:24:30 PM
Agreed, talent + instrument + room will get you 80% of the way there even with the cheapest recording gear.

That being said:  I like the slightly lifted range of the CK12.  That guitar sounded pretty "midrangey", like a spruce top.  I've often recommended to people that sing (like Wave) right in the midrange that a mid-forward guitar doesn't work as well.  I bet he would sound great playing a mid-scooped guitar like a baby Taylor or something with new strings on a solid mahogany or rosewood body.

For Wave, I'd do the C12 on a mid-scooped guitar up in the 2-ft range in a fairly big (but treated!) room to bring in a nice stereo field.  And then I'd switch to a 47-type for his voice to sit solidly in the mids so that less low-pass filtering is needed.

This can also be compensated easily in the C12 with the "plate cap" taken from the ELAM251 as I've outlined in the C12 thread.  It's even easy to make it switchable by putting the cap in series with a switch and hot glueing it inside the body where it can be switched back and forth to give a slight high cut.  However too drastic of a cut will make the C12 sound bass-heavy and begins to infringe on the 47 territory.

I was lucky enough to get a couple capsules from Tim at the early stages of his manufacturing and got them rather quickly. Trust me. If you had to wait a year, its still worth it.

Hi all,

So I was very lucky to spend an evening in a very cool private studio. The owner has a pretty sick mic collection that included a very very nice AKG c12. It looks and sounds fantastic. We recorded pretty much every source we could C12 against my C12 clone, both mics were recorded the same source at the same time going through some John Hardy pre's in to a Radar recorder. I think they sound pretty darn close! My capsule has a bit more in the high end. :o but lacks something in the bottom that I really like in th original. Anyway please tell me waht you all think!!!

These are the fixed clips......

I agree that yours has a bit more high end, but again, I'm surprised how close these are!

Does this test mean you are you done tweaking the capsule, or will you try to dial it in even more?

Eric, I still don't get why my capsule should be mentioned in this thread. This is a white market thread where you are selling a capsule. That capsule should sound like an AKG CK12. You've done tests comparing it to that capsule and posted them here (or meant to)

MBHO, Josephson, Telefunken, Korby, Beesneez, Lawson, Beyerdynamic and probably some others I don't know of manufacture this capsule and will gladly sell capsules to anyone here wanting a CK12. I've seen none of them mentioned in this thread or mention of comparing your capsule to them.

Tim,

Please don't take this any other way than that you make a great capsule that I have access to. If I had another clone with a chambered capsule regardless of the manufacturer I would be doing the same side by side comparison. And trust me its not in an effort to say one sounds better or not but to hopefully go to market with a capsule that sounds good! I publicly apologize if this upsets you somehow, but that is not my intention. Moving forward please contact me directly I would prefer this thread to stay about my capsules and my development of them.

Post by: micaddict on August 13, 2013, 05:44:53 AM
Thanks Eric. Why is the vocal file for the C12 so much bigger? Takes some six or seven minutes to download.

I did listen to the acoustic guitar files. The clone/HK12 is a lot brighter there. Could it be it was closer to the headstock (further from the body) than the C12?

Albeit bright and perhaps (!) too much so, the clone does sound fresh, open and alive. The original seems somewhat tired in comparison. It doesn't strike me as a "typical C12", if there is such a thing.
Only one sample and all very preliminary, mind.

It's very interesting comparison! I truly think both sound fantastic but I would agree the c12 sounds a bit tired although very smooth. The low end is very nice though and I have some improvements I can do in that front. I may even take the brightness down a notch as well. Any other comments are greatly appreciated!!

I am interested in your 87 style capsule as I'm currently in the process of sourcing parts for Dans D-87.

My questions would be whether you ship to Israel, how would the shipment cost and how much lead time I should expect.

Thanks for your time.

OK another quick update sound clip I wanted to share with everyone. So, I received a call from a studio friend of mine who was lucky enough to have a reissue ElaM 251 in his possession, but the kicker was the fact the owner had a vintage ck12 capsule installed! Needless to say I brought my C12 clone over and we did a quick shootout!
I was pretty pleased with the results. Again chain is Neve pre 16bit 44.1 Radar converters in to pro tools. These clips will also line up in a session if you want to here them that way as well.

Dear Eric,

i have a mic with original AKG brass CK12 in Fixed bias C12 headamp.
i have tim's capsule too in elam 251E self bias headamp, and C12 configuration also.
i can tell you that these capsules are very very close to each other, but the sound of the mics is quite different.
We all well know that it's due to the electronic differences inside the mics, and body/head baskets differences too.

So i think that your last shootout is very interesting but not accurate.

your c12 clone is more noisy than the elam...maybe the tube ??

however , your hk12 sounds good to me.

i would a little more low end/low mid to it, it should just add more body to the sound, but please be sure that it doesn't come from the electronics...
if your using a matador C12 pcb for example, please insulate the teflon/high impedance parts to avoid low cut filtering.
i know that epoxy is a bad insulation material for mics...
Please check some various tubes as the inter-electrodes input insulation may vary from one to another.

the HK12 seems a little more sibilant than the original CK12 but it's perhaps due to the head basket difference.

i think that you're close to the Graal, but please use the same body or at least same headamp for your shootouts.

Could you post us a chart for your HK12?

Please keep going , you're so close and you've already done a fantastic job...
Kindest regards
Fred

Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!
Post by: granger.frederic on September 04, 2013, 06:39:25 PM
how?

in the matador c12 pcb, the teflon/metal pins are soldered directly on the pcb.
i think we'd better avoid contact between the metal conductor of the pins, and the pcb.
epoxy is a bad high impedance insulator (in the gig ohms order...)
teflon is the opposite...
like many manufacturers, we should make some "point to point" in the high impedance section.
remember that even a few grid current leak, can badly affect the frequency response.

cheers
Fred

Post by: Matador on September 05, 2013, 06:55:02 PM
Teflon *is* better, but only in a vacuum. ;)  Remember that the air around the telfon pin is in parallel with the pin.

I did run a frequency sweep through a stock build with a 70pF cap in place of the capsule, and the default build on my PCB is flat down to roughly 40-50Hz.  Increasing the value of C12 helps (as does getting a transformer with higher primary inductance like AMI's T14), but only a few dB down in the 20-40Hz region.

So long as the area around the pins is cleaned well with IPA I don't think it will effect the response of the circuit.

In any case, Eric's capsule sounds fantastic.
Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 and HK87 style capsules....AND NOW HK47!!!!
Post by: granger.frederic on September 06, 2013, 03:59:43 AM
Dear Matador,

i understand but the problem is not the air around the teflon, it's the conductor soldered on the pcb.
i think we'd better glue the teflon pin on the pcb and solder the high value resistors straight  to the pin's conductor (easy to do a point to point).

your C12 headamp should be flat from 20hz to 20khz +/-1db with an AMI T14 (oliver's specs)
the 6072a tube is not limiting in this range, the 250 Mohms grid resistance neither
the output cap at 1uf is limiting below 8hz at this impedance
In an Elam 251E, there is by nature some high pass filters : lower grid resistance, output T14/1 by HAUFE (begins to cut below 100hz !!!)
In an Elam 251, the grid resistance is higher and the AC701 has a higher inter-electrode input impedance, thus the pre-transformer headamp is cutting lower than the 251E.

the HK12 sounds fantastic to my ears too, but Eric has asked for our feedbacks so he may think that there's room for some improvements..
I think it lacks of bottom end/body in the last shootout compared to the TFK ELAM (maybe the headamp...?)
but it seems very promising...

Dear Eric, let us know if there are some upgrades...
Could you please post us a frequency chart and some detailed pictures of your hk12 ?

cheers
Fred

Post by: Matador on September 06, 2013, 04:18:27 PM
A few options come to mind:

Source impedance plays a huge role in determining the pass band.  The output impedance of the tube stage, in combination with the coupling cap and the inductance of the primary, form a normal RLC resonant circuit.  Just spitballing a few numbers here:  with a roughly 40K output impedance (essentially the plate resistor in parallel with rp), a 0.5u coupling cap, and a 150H primary, we have a passband that is 3dB down at about 50Hz.  Cutting the source impedance by half moves the 3dB down point to below 15Hz, which means there would be about 2dB more content below 100Hz.

This could be easily done by simply paralleling both halves of the tube, and running twice the plate current while cutting the plate resistor in half.  Another way would be to convert the tube to a CCDA stage/cathode follower which will cut the source impedance down to less than 1K.

Increasing the coupling cap helps a bit here too:  2u might be a good value for those looking for more bass response.

Additionally, the reflected impedance from the output greatly effects tube loading at higher frequencies:  a high cut might be perceived as a bass boost.  A simple 600ohm resistor across the secondary terminals might bring the reflected impedance down to a point where we start cutting highs a bit for more perceived bass.  It's a 5-minute test in any case. ;)

Thanks for the feedback, some detailed pictures are actually a couple of pages back by the way. And trust me I know the elaM comparison isn't a perfect one but I thought it was worthwhile none the less.
I was just really surprised how close they where!! I have some good ideas to tame the highs just a touch and add a bit more low end. And sadly I have no reall good way of doing a frequency chart. It looks like I will be about a month before I start producing.

Thanks

how?

in the matador c12 pcb, the teflon/metal pins are soldered directly on the pcb.
i think we'd better avoid contact between the metal conductor of the pins, and the pcb.
epoxy is a bad high impedance insulator (in the gig ohms order...)
teflon is the opposite...
like many manufacturers, we should make some "point to point" in the high impedance section.
remember that even a few grid current leak, can badly affect the frequency response.

cheers
Fred

I'd wondered about this. Even on the inexpensive Chinese tube mics the high impedence sections are isolated with direct soldering of those components to the teflon pins. The teflon isolates the pins from the board. Thanks for explaining.

My Matador C12 sounds good to me, but now I want to experiment.... Hmmmnnnnn.

Dear Eric,

thanks for the good news, i hope you'll find a way to fix the bottom end/high end...

there's only one external picture of your capsule, it would be nice to have some detailed pictures of the inside parts, to see how you've managed the multi- chambers, for example...( i understand if you want to keep some manufacturing secrets..)

Dear Matador,

i understand that various equalizations are possible in a headamp, but personally i don't want to use that.
i prefer a flat schematic to give the full capsule response.
eqs are creating some phase shifts which are sound falsifications, even at the first order.
If we want to experiment with lower output tube impedance, i think i would prefer deal with a 5718 or an ac701, instead of non perfectly paired triodes in parallel...
i guess that Oliver has given the T14 response at 10k input impedance (we need to check that), so a 5718 or a 6922 should give us the +/-1db 20hz to 20Khz (with 50/90v anode, 1uF ,and at least 200Mohm grid resistor)

Zout= (Ri * Rp) / (Ri + Rp) where Ri=internal resistance and Rp=plate resistance

Cheers
Fred

Sorry no inside pics yet, I have the first proto in my c12 microphone currently. Once I get my production run finished I will be able to take some pictures of it disassembled. The capsule is dimensionally exactly the same as an original. The primary and secondary backplates create the chamber the same way as AKG did just without the threading. I can precision grind all the parts that way and produce a more consistent capsule.

Check back in the thread on page 5, I have posted some links to a pretty large shoot out with a really old vintage c12, I also paosted a clip of a new reproduction ElaM 251 witha vintage c12 capsule in it that sounds almost exatcly like my capsule, Not an exact comparison but a suprising one...

Nice work Tskguy! But to me they sound quite different and I would have to agree with what was mentioned earlier in the thread the ie.low end could come up and highs around 2k-3k could come down before the high end lift. The original C12 sounds very relaxed and natural and reminds me a lot of my Tim Campbell capsule. Keep tweaking your almost there! :)

Post by: tskguy on December 06, 2013, 10:21:41 AM


I am actually there, The changes are very easy to make. So once the production run starts the capsules will be my own sound, but closer to the original c12 in the clip that honestly is a but tired sounding to my ears. Take a listen to the second clips with a newer mic circuit the 251 and a vintage deep dish c12, it is very close. Again a nudge in the low end will help and can be adjusted. And just an FYI there wont be any comparisons made to Tim's capsule. This is at his request, 

Let me know when you want one  ;D

We need more pictures of that bad boy tskguy!  How about some edge shots and better yes some disassembled shots.

Quite a bit more top in your capsule vs the samples, but the fact that it was two different mics makes it all inconclusive.

The old C12 sounded like a very good specimen to my ears dead quiet too... The 251 and C12 are very different circuits they and shouldn't really sound the same at all.

I'll look forward to hearing more samples of your tweaked capsule in the future if you have plans of shooting it out with the old C12 again?

True.  I bailed about 8 minutes in.  Just watched the part you specified and saw what you were talking about.  Thx for that.  ;)  So we're "almost" there.

FWIW my Matachung C12 fitted with the CT12 is the sweetest mic I've ever heard.  The tube makes a lot of difference too though.  I've tried about 20.

That said, I'm dying to try the Beezneez and Heiserman capsules.  It just goes to show how hard these are to make.

All ends well.  :)

If we focus on the (very) positive, that Fet 47 (built by Eric, with his own capsule and Dany's PCB) really stole the show. Darn, now I've given it away. Anyway, that cross breed K47 capsule (with dual backplates) sounds very nice indeed. Eric is onto something there.

Regarding the 12. I really appreciate and respect Eric's honesty.
Also, I don't know how long ago the video was made, but from what I understand, he is pretty confident about it now.

Hey everyone, new here. Cool place. I'm the guy who's doing all the videos and mic clips over at gearslutz. The video posted here is a part of a thread with links to studio clips from 2 different studios with a number of singers and acoustic guitars. I will organize the we transfer download links tomorrow and post them up. We've been using a bunch of mics that eric assembled with his capsules and they are great. I actually got a Fet 47 that I have been using everyday. Some of the mics shot out are the finest in the world. This all started in Mexico City about a month ago while I was at Cosmos Production with Armando Avila. He has a mic collection only surpassed by Sides and McBride. So the test is great. Also we used a number of re-issues and clone types. I will get it up here.

Quick update... The HK12's are starting to become available. The folks that have pre-ordered thanks!! Your capsules are being skinned as we speak.. Also for those with outstanding orders of 67 and 87 capsules I am also working to get all orders out the door. I have had multiple setbacks lately and It caused me to get far behind. All of that is resolved and I will be shipping all back orders within the next week or so....

Thanks for all of your patience!!!!!

https://traceofhearts.bandcamp.com/releases

The vocals were tracked using the Matachung c12 I built using Eric's HK12. I am VERY pleased with the results!
Vox went from the C12 - polar pattern set between cardioid and figure 8 for rejection of guitar - into a CAPI VP28 Pre, through a Hairball mnats (1176 clone) rev d fet compressor (4:1, about 10 db of compression when she belted it out) apogee converters.
No digital eq or compression was applied to the vocal track. A bit of verb was, clearly.

The stereo bus had a hair (less than 2 db at peaks) of serpent audio SB4000 (SSL STYLE) compression, followed by less than a DB of gain here and there via an A-Designs Hammer EQ, and finally just a touch more compression (less than 2db at peaks) via a pair of JLM Audio LA500 opto comps, and finally through the iron of a john hardy M-2, and very slight limiting ITB.

If you're curious, and for the record, the Bass went through an A Designs EM-Blue DI, followed by a Distressor on 1:4, not hitting it much.
The guitar was tracked with a modded MXL 990 (that sebastapol company's full $200ish mod - can't remember the name!) through a Hairball LOLA with 990s, and slight digital compression ITB.

This mic has fast become a favorite around here. It's been complete for a few weeks, and my studio partner and I continue to be in awe of it, especially for vocals, but really for just about anything. There is a clarity and sensitivity without any high mid hype that is just so beautiful. There's a $7000 BOCK mic with an elliptical capsule on loan from another friend sitting in it's case on the floor not 5 feet from where we're tracking with this C12. And even though that's a beautiful mic which we've used a couple of times, it hasn't seen the light of day since we put up the C12. One note is you may need a more expensive boom stand to handle the sensitivity of this mic! My normal K&M boom stands do not provide enough DISTANCE from the vibrations of a singer standing on the (somewhat spongy) floor next to them. I'm working on hanging a stand from the ceiling for this mic now...

Eric, thank you for your awesome work on this! And same to Chung and Matador. Everyone who hears this thing wants one, and I may just use their desires to build another one for myself soon.. (after I finish my drip LA2A, DIY Sontec, U87, U67, and....)  -Dan

This was recorded with 3 of Eric's capsules:

C12 on the left, U67 on the right, and U87 down the middle...

https://danielfries.bandcamp.com/track/lagrima

yes, the 67 is a bit hissy, and I did compress the track somewhat which brought that up in the quiet sections. I think it's my tube, which I'm still playing around with, and it frankly doesn't bother me on this recording.

Hey all,

Check out the front page.. Update to the 87,67,47 capsules!! All are using brass outer rings.  And I am not raising my price!!
Like I said on the front page my lead times have been pretty long as of late.  The orders have been pretty steady...

Hi Eric,
I bought the C12 capsule you make from chunger last fall, and I'm making the mics now.
The capsules are provided with 4 leads which are not screwed onto the capsule.
Quick Question: How do I install the leads to the capsules? For the front capsule, can I just unscrew one screw on the rim, put in the lead with solderpad and replace the screw?
Thanks :)

I just thought i'd check to see how your U87 type capsules are coming along?
I ordered a matched pair mid-december, so hopefully they will be ready soon?

Thanks!

Looks like I could be waiting a while for my capsules then. I placed my order around the start of feb for 1x87 & 1x47 with a 4-6 week lead time...

I suppose it will give me time to complete the boards and get everything else put together :)

Looking forward to these builds, the only LDC I have currently is a CAD M179 and although its ok, its a pretty boring mic!

Thanks, Matt

Has anyone been in touch with Eric lately? Have been trying to get in touch over the last few weeks, and no reply?
Perhaps he is away?

If you're reading this Eric, i was just wondering how your U87 capsules are coming along?
I ordered a pair in Mid December.

Hey Guys,

I placed an order for an 87 and 47 capsule from Eric at the start of February.

I contacted him via the email address he provided a few posts above and he replied very promptly (with-in 30 minutes) saying that there were a few capsules before mine in the line and that he would contact me when they are ready to ship.

I then contacted him again asking for a rough ETA but he did not reply. I guess we just need to be patient!

Would be nice to hear from other people who have placed orders recently and received capsules recently from Eric :)

Thanks, Matt

Eric just got back to me this morning via PM and I then I realized his email was in the thread. He responded much faster when I contacted him through email so anyone else trying to get ahold of him should probably do so via email as well. I put in my order for a Hk87 today and he told me that the lead time is roughly 5-7 weeks at this point. So I imagine there are quite a few people waiting for capsules still. From what I've heard his capsules are waiting for, so I will just be waiting quietly and patiently till I hear back!

Hey guys,

So sorry for the delays lately.. I simply have a long list of orders that are not slowing and between the day job, wife and 5 year old little girl time is at a premium!! Especially if I want to stay married! Anyway, please understand that I am doing my best to get these out in a somewhat timely fashion.  Currently I am rapping up orders from the end of last year/ Jan 2015. So orders placed in Feb March are in line and being worked on now. Please if you want some capsules get in line! I pretty much build to order so I just chug through the list.
Thanks for the understanding guys!!

Eric

I was getting a little worried too as I haven't had a reply to my hotmail email either, I ordered at the start of February, with a 4-6 week lead time... Im not worried about how long it takes but some communication to say "I'm working on them still I expect them to be ready within "x" weeks" would be nice :)

Reading everyones reviews on them they are worth waiting for its just a shame communications couldn't be a little better!

Hey all!

So all orders order on or before April 15th have shipped excluding the 12's I still need to do some work on those before I ship... If your in the states you will see  them via FedEx most likely during the next week. International will take longer of coarse.. The 12's will ship after I get back from New York the week of the 18th...

Thanks again guys!

Hey Eric, I noticed a little strand of something on the edge of my capsule.  I took the capsule out of its case to get a better picture of it. I'm sure its not a big deal but I just wondered if it was safe to take it off with a razor? Or should I leave it be? Otherwise the capsule looks GREAT! Can't wait to finish up this project so I can hear it in action.

Thanks,
Ian

My local ME, Emil (who isn't a member here, that's why I'm asking for him) ordered AND paid a HK12 quite a while ago - the 27. April.

He has had no luck trying to reach you by email - so the question is: When can he expect to see his capsule?

  Just a bit of info for those considering Eric's HK-12, they're worth the wait.   To my ears, they really capture the character of the original.  Or, at least, what I look for in a CK12.  Slightly bright and crisp, but without the harshness and grit you hear in many of the CK12s used in expensive production mics these days.  Lows seem to be better contained than in one of the popular offerings too.  (Edit; the above may have been taken the wrong way, I don't want to give the impression that there aren't other good options out there!).  I haven't pulled my vintage brass CK12 to make a direct comparison, but as an owner of both I am very happy to use Eric's capsule and recommend it for those who want to build a mic with a real C12 vibe.

You shouldn't really need one. It is pretty straight forward and the same as other CK12 types.  You connect the front and rear diaphram by attaching a lead to the membrane ring. There are 2 screws for each backplate, you should be able to attach to either one to connect to the backplate. If it isn't working by connecting in this manner something else wrong.

Just wanted to let you know that I have finally finished my mic builds with your HK47, and the Dale M7 you re-skined for me, and they sound absolutily beautiful. You did a fantastic job.

Thank You!

Welcome Dennis!

So, how would you compare the HK47 (double backplate) and Dale M7 (single backplate and glued edges) that was also skinned by Eric? Soundwise, I mean.
I think I have a pretty good idea, but there's nothing like actually using them both yourself.

Title: Re: Made in the USA HK67 HK87 HK47 style capsules..AND NOW HK12 !!!!
Post by: DKasten on February 21, 2016, 02:15:08 PM
Hi Henk
Thank you for the welcome:)

I'm sorry, but I can't really compere the two capsules. They are in two different types of circuits. The HK47 is in a D49, and the M7 in a ECC82 tube-cardiod only type microphone. I have a similar circuit with a Thiersch M7 (Red), and that has beed my favorit capsule for a long time, and the one I compare the rest of my microphones to. The Dale M7 doesn't sound like the Thiersch. It is brighter, and doesn't have the same midrange clarity, but it is a very well sounding capsule on its own.

I find the HK47 a perfect match to the D49 mic build. The hardest thing for me to record has been double bass, and for the first time the full body and presence of the bass was captured. 

Not sure if any of this helps you...

Dennis

From Stam Audio:
" I decided to sing myself and do a little video on the SA87 which is our Neumann u87 clone. The idea behind this take is to show how the microphone sounds using stock preamps on a modest interface in an untreated room. It uses a US handmade capsule by Eric Hesierman (HK-87), a D-87 pcb by Dany Bouchard (rev 16) and a Sowter or Cinemag output transformer. Vishay and Polystyrene capacitors as well."

Hi Eric, I'm interested in buying a set of two (preferably matched) HK12 capsules if you have any available. Please let me know how to order them!
