Great find , on the ADK source. worth a look , eventhough discriptions seem debateful.

Zebra50 - was not much into ribbons but after seeing your website today for 1'st time
that may all change.

ADK is a great company and has great staff. Very nice and helpful, their capsules are top build quality and worth every penny.

Another source that I haven't personally tried is Peluso

A bit cheaper, but not as many options with Peluso.

I have been looking about for parts to build a mic, thats how I found the ADK capsules I think I read they are not chinese ....
things is I wanted to be suprised my some air while pondering my lows hehe....its the 47 I was thinking of getting....

I think I read Peluso are china but tuned up......Im not saying thats a bad thing tho.....

Anyone have any other capsule sources.......Ebay have 30 pound jobs I bet they are sh*t.....

In my research I read about the 767  china capsules that are meant to be good......I have no idea are they good ? I wonder how they would compare to these ADKs & Pelusos..... is the peluso a tuned up version?...

I was thinking of buying a cheap mic for its parts maybe a Nady tcm or a Behringer B2

I haven't built a mic never mind use these capsules but people seem to like this guy's mics enough that I'd think the capsules are worth a shot.

http://www.gearslutz.com/board/6058234-post26.html     In this post this chap from advanced audio offers a K47 type for 95 dollars & his website sell Peluso PK47 245 dollars so I gues the Peluso is the better of the two

You should add Thiersch SWT-7.

Thanks pas.....but cant seem to find prices.......

http://www.thiersch-mic.de/en/estm_produkte.html

Whoops, it's STW7, not SWT. They had a discount when I bought my red line capsule. From the mail they sent me:

STW7 blue line is about 229,50 EUR,
STW7.1 blue line: 242,25 EUR
STW7 red line: 191,25 EUR
STW7.1 red line: 204 EUR

I don't know if the discount is still on.

"...Ponderous Low-End, Surprising Air!"

:)

Ponderous Low-End -  " why? why on earth does it sound like that?"

Surprising Air! - "i"m surprised that there is any high end what so ever after I hacked up a mic like that"
You tell me whar a man gits his corn pone, en I'll tell you what his 'pinions is.

Thanks papsrski ..........but they replied to my Email saying they dont sell capsules......I will Email again now....

 ??? Weird.

Well they sell "transducers", not "capsules", but I doubt that's the problem. Didi you use this form at their site:

http://www.thiersch-mic.de/en/estm_kontakt.php

Hi pas yeah I did , I think the capsule transducer is the issue I found another post here someone having same trouble as me....I will contact aging & ask for prices for transducers....
STW7 blue line
STW7.1 blue line
STW7 red line
STW7.1 red line

Tho I dont know which will be best for me....

Many thanks
