I see that now pronomic is made in black?!?! Top grill looks like old type. Anyone ordered black version and could confirm grill type?

Anyone tested those black ones ? also, did anyone compared with the even cheaper Takstar on aliexpress ? Someone mentioned it but not much infos...
I have the banzai capsules, just looking for some bodies to put them on.

If they have the grill with the slits they're probably the old ones. They're probably just coloured differently. The Takstar might be similar as well since a lot of super cheap mics are just rebrands of other cheap mics. You can get an iSK BM-80 from Swamp.net.au for $60 AUS. I don't know what the Takstar costs though.

Does anyone know who makes the type of capsule in the image I've attached?  They are super-flat, but only one dealer has them, and they're $150.  I think that's pretty steep for considering where it's made.

Yes, it's the MP version and it's the one used by 3U, but I can't find the original Chinese source.

I was under the impression that 3U make their own capsules. Can anyone confirm?

I have also heard third-hand that in their stock form the 3U sdc capsules don't work with the standard Chinese/MXL style bodies as the metal post on the capsule is too short to make contact with the connector on Chinese body.

So if both of these are in fact true, then it's likely that Mic-Parts did a custom order from 3U for their capsules.

It wouldn't be too difficult to make the center contact a bit longer, or replace it completely.
(As long as the thread for the microphone body fits.)
There is a solution for every problem!

FWIW if it's anything like the 3U Audio capsules it'll be pretty nice. I hate to see Mic-Parts selling an $80~capsule for $150 though.
