Re: Where to start for an exact accurate version of C800G

Interesting... I am also in the process of trying to build a replica. I found the Sony capsule for sale but they do not have the transformer for sale or the tubes. The tubes seem possible to source but the transformer might be more difficult, since like the capsule I would assume Sony has a "special" transformer but again thats just an assumption. I have all of the schematics and some have voltages listed. I also have manuals for the mic and power supply which have detailed schematics and a parts list. Id love to see how you accomplish a clone of the C800G. I will definitely follow this thread if anything develops.

Judging just by the size of the original transformer i would bet it was designed to be ultra transparent. Which makes things easier, as vintage "vibey" are tough to replicate, this one should be easier. But i am just guessing.
