Never a dull moment with Dan.
Might as well tell us what's the next one on the list.  :P

Hey Dan. Sounds like a great idea. I would love to be one of the people to put together one of the sample pcbs. With all of your boards, one could have the ultimate mic locker.

Dan,
just an idea. Would it be possible to make two round versions? One with the diameter of the M49 body (60mm) and another smaller one with the diameter of the Alctron GT-2B, short U47 type body (50mm).

Hi Dan, I'd like to get in on two each of the proto's for the B and C versions if possible.

Not sure if these are proto or debugged versions, but I'm all for one b and two c when these are debugged (if there is need for that, otherwise put me down immediately). Fitting in a 60mm round body.

The 2 version above should fit the GT2B type as they are the same size as the FET pcb i am currently working on a circular version i will start with the 60mm version ,  the 2 version above will be mounted in verticaly in the gt2b style body with the tube on one side and the component on the other side ,
i am on it at the moment ,  :)

Hey Dan,

I am making progress as far as getting the bodies to come in at a reasonable price! The one thing to watch out for on the 60mm round PCBs is that there are three holes for where the standoffs go up to the top cap. I will send you a drawing on what I am doing for my bodies if that would help, if you are interested in incorporating that.

That might look like this ,  Needs some polish and the square version is redone to miniaturize again for proper railing clearance and better connection scheme


this square version should fit the GT2B body 44*48mm and the aMI t49 just on the touch, will post picture soon.
and this one sould go in your mic body. :)

Let me know the Coordinate of the mounting hole.

Hello!! This  is a nice Project!! Witch Tubes are you using? 5840,5702,5703,Ec 71? Threre is no real substitute Tube for the Ac701 but I wrote in the Prosoundweb Forum that IO audio uses Ec 71 Tubes in an Ac701 circuit with good results.The Kathoderesistor needs to be aligned .Somewhere i wrote also that the EC 1000(Electrometertube) can be used as well (if you have one )how about the Tube Cj uses in his new cascade u47 mic?Did anybody design a Transistor Circuit like the Andreas Grosser Vf 14 Replacement , for the Ac 701Tube?(With a different Powersupply)A few Days ago I saw a MXL G  Trac usb Mic witch Headbascet looks very similar to a M49!!
Thank You very much!!!

So these are the final Version , the square version (44mm * 48mm) should fit the gt-2b style , and the round version is 60mm diameter should fit upcoming riggler mic body 
i have been able to fit 2 mounting hole as per riggler drawing of 5.05mm mouting , i am to produce gerber at the moment so i will probably run a very small batch of those , so if any interest let me know ,  this will be an experiment for sure ,  there is 2 versions of each to accomodate the M49b and M49c version.

Stay tuned ,

here is a preliminary BOM ,

it does not include the presume C6 600pf styro and Selectable Styro C4 and also the C1 1000pf styro I presume,

Stuff for both version for 1 mic , note there is a 22K and a 2.2K as i could not be sure of the value of R7 in the C version

A quote from Oliver A,

Quote
Hello Guys,

there are a bunch of tubes that will work and pass signal to call it close enough to an AC701, but there is virtually no tube that will sound the same. 
There is the AC761 made by RFT an east german copy, that looks and feels the same but the noise figures are pretty bad compared to an real one.
The EC1000 looks pretty similar and gets close to the sound, but the lifetime is pretty short and noise can be an issue.
That far I used the 5840 as general replacement, it give an in the direction feel....

Best regards,

Oliver

It´s a 2,2K. Let me know when the round 49c proto pcbs are there.
