not yet. demand on mk47 pcb kits is bigger than anticipated, so i'll prepare more before i return to the housing.

I'm still thinking about what to include, maybe i'll offer two packages - but the inner structure with the rails will be included for sure.

Hm...I'm not sure what to do. The Equinox body will be available in a few days and surely be sold out quick... but yours seem to be the same high quality and also lower shipping costs to Germany....

This body is made from brass and gunmetal and made in austria, i don't want (nor can't) compete with aluminium bodies made in china.

I'm getting there slowly...Plan to include the pattern switch via magnet/reed contact...this project is evolving to a kit with point to point electronic parts, connectors etc
Finished the inner structure, turning parts, headbasket toolings etc.

Hi Max,

It was a long time ago since we met in Vienna and I bought a pair of mics from you.
They are still the best I have for certain things.
I' m really amazed by your work, especially these latest creations, this is just crazy....
Looks like you have a steel tube in mind, or that ring is just for true to the original cosmetics??
How are those M7' s coming along? Man, that' s also crazy  ;)

Last year I invested in some nice mics so I' m kind of broke at the moment but please don' t forget
about me when this hits the market. I can only imagine how fast these will go...

Here' s a photo of your babies in good company, please excuse the tejp...

Best regards
Magnus

How much do you think the full kit will cost?

Will you also be selling the power supply to run it??

Thanks

Hi Magnus,

long time - great to see the mics got such nice company!
Thanks for your kind words. The black ring is made from rubber and it's used as a shockmount for the tube, in my case it's two miniatures.


canidoit,
i still have to negotiate a costs for the galvanisation and a few other things before i can settle on a pricing.
The psu will most likely not be included.

"what to do with the old MK47"
Why, Is there going to be a "sound" difference with the new transformer, kit?

This looks amazing Max. Great job.
Maybe you shouldn't include everything in the kit, so we can feel like we did some work too   ;)
