Samar Audio Design TF08 Capsules
« on: May 06, 2019, 04:15:53 PM »
For a limited time we are offering our newest capsules, found in our high-end microphones Omni8 Audio TF08 to the DIY community. First 50 pcs will be sold for $200, plus $10 domestic, or $27 worldwide shipping.

This capsule was designed to work without DC to DC converter, and works perfectly with 30-40V bias and any low current draw linear circuit, such as Schoeps, or classic transformer coupled circuits, for example KM84, or U47. Our High End dual bobbin transformer would be a perfect match for such circuits for an ultimate transformer coupled microphone. It might be also a perfect match for RF microphones.

The capsuleā€™s body is pre-drilled for use with standard Chinese mount (mount not included). For extra $79 we can supply our own mount, similar to one used in our Omni8 Audio TF08 microphone. Please note, this version has different mount than Chinese one, so they are not interchangeable. Please specify when ordering.

This cardioid capsule is a single sided, vented, 3-chambered design. The 1st and 2nd chambers shape the capsule's frequency response, and the 3rd sets time delay. This 3-chamber independence allows precise optimization of all parameters. It also ensures superior phase integrity in off axis response, so the capsule takes EQ very well. It also uses internal frequency dependent screen to ensure good and uniform cardioid pattern throughout entire frequency range. The screen also controls proximity, making it much less dependent on the distance to the source. The elimination of the capsules parasitic capacitances ensures low distortion and ultimate transparency, providing a very realistic sound picture.

Hello Guff,

I already answered it in another thread, but will post here as well.

A quick update:

Thank you all for your support and patience! As it usually happens, the new products take more time than we initially think it would. We are trying to make the very best product we possibly can and were testing new very low moisture absorption materials to significantly improve capsule's immunity to the moisture. We tried quite a few materials and were already very close to the final assembly and starting sending the capsules out. Unfortunately, completely unexpectedly I had to make the last minute overseas trip until second week of August. We will start sending the capsules right after my coming back.

Again, sorry for the delay.

Best, M
