Anyone tried to attack one of these?

Electret, circuit probably similar to BM800. Would like to try it with some better capsule. I have one micro k67 laying around. I guess 36v from phantom will do just great as it will operate from close proximity, i don't need it crazy sensitive.

Attached image is this old russian micro k67 model.

Ok, so i bought this for donor body. The microphone does not work actually, as it has no circuit inside, the electret capsule is just connected to output xlr.  :o

The capsule fits perfectly



I used Cchoctava circuit from this link:

It fits no problem, and there is a lot room left:



The final result

U87- Green
My Mic- Red

That low end dip comes in handy with PE. And i used 0.68uF capacitor instead of 2uF for C3.

Cool. It's a shame that your pictures and chart are so large that they can't be seen entirely at one time.

If you look at it with a phone, hold the picture, open in a new tab, or save as. Right click on a computer...

I had done this mod using an AKG 451eb and my capsule. It sounds incredible. You just need an CK5 head.

Unfortunatelly, the sdc capsule is too sensitive to breath moisture, and didnt work well. So i went with 797 audio's c12. It just fits under the cap. I need to work on shiending though.
