I bought a micparts capsule and it is the standard mxl capsule with woven mesh— NOT the one with perforated sheet-stock resonator screen, as pictured.

that's good to know.  I won't be going that route.

Since the delivered capsule doesn't match the picture, I would send it back and reclaim my money!
(Mmm...  why am I not surprised? The seller is Microphone-Parts, isn't it?)

Ruud, that is my intent--

here is a bit of the exchange:

"We don't have any more of the style with the perforated metal screen. The ones you were sent sound exactly the same, and in many cases, better.

If you'd like to return them, we will refund the purchase price, but for what it's worth, these are what is described in the auction: MXL style small diaphragm capsules. What you received are actually manufactured by MXL."

My interest in linguistic evolution compels me to ask: does anybody know if the statement in bold is a logical fallacy or what it is called? I hear this kind of device used at 'rallies' frequently.

My advise: never argue with Matt McGlynn.
He is always right.
And if not, he still is!  ;D

That's really sh*tty. If it's the one that says "MXL/CAD style" there's nothing in the description saying that it's an actual MXL capsule, just that it's a small diaphragm capsule for MXL and CAD style mics. I'd return it, or if he tries to fight you open a case with eBay.

I can confirm this.
And I suppose that they currently still sell the same version.
(I don't order microphones every day!  :) )

Yes they do. I got it yesterday, new version.

Great to hear that! I recently ordered a couple more.
(It seems they are out of stock at the moment, but will be available soon.)

ShuaiYin have these in stock. They have mesh instead of grille, but seem like the same thing otherwise.

And with mesh removed

I suspect the grill  to make the sonic differences. These ones are the old style and the will have a bump  around  7k

Have you guys been asked by kirstein.de to provide passport information in order to receive your mics?

I have ordered and paid two mics few days ago, and today they asked for my passport ID via email in order to ship mics to me. That doesn't make any sense.

Very strange...
From what I read on their website, the SCM-1 is out of stock at the moment, but will be available soon.
I ordered a couple too.

Today I received a couple of SDC capsules from Microphone Parts.
To my surprise they look (and sound) exactly the same as the 'Banzai' capsules.
Strange... (Because forum member shabtek received different ones!)

What changed your mind Rudolph? :D ;)

Everything from Microphone Farts Parts is way overpriced.
(That is the reason that I will never buy from them...)

I needed a couple of these for a collegue.
They seemed to be the only ones of reasonable quality that were available.
As you know, I am not a big fan of Microphone Parts...

Yes, many years ago already. I got them directly from the factory, for a fraction of the price.
Not too bad for an electret capsule. Bit bright though.
As far as I could see, they are also used in the 'Ear Trumpet' microphones.

Hey Ruud,
how are the capsules then compared to the pronomic ones? Are they all the same?

Cheers
