Felio has been making the capsules for the Manely cardioid reference mic.  Telefunken Elektroakustik has been using chinese capsules (possibly Alctron branded) in there RFT line up with great success and we now see a RK-47 for $89.

There are 35 mm K67 copies on ebay for $50 that no one knows anything about!  Why not do a groupbuy on some of this stuff?!

Just an idea,

well looks like your volunteering. No one stopping you. Group buys are hard to manage but why not if you so inclined.

Well, I guess many of us exchange Chinese capsules for better capsules (with a reason) and so have spare Chinese capsules for experiments, anyway. So why buy more? Plus, you can buy Chinese microphones for little money, which gives you a capsule, a body and several high ohms resistors.

Not too long ago, someone in the Black Market sold China capsules for a couple of bucks.

I've got two one-sided chinese capsules here I don't need, if anyone's interested...

Someone did, years ago - I think it was Ward or Perki.

I ended up with four, and gave my last one away a few days ago!
