Good question.

This capsule takes 5 hours including machine time to make.  Price will be list AUD$899 for Gdiy members AUD$700.

The pcb set to fit the OEM body (3boards and 9 brass risers $50.00 (pcb for either tube or fet can be specified). Fet version is either transformerless or transformer balanced as both layouts are on a single board.

The PCB sets for the BeesNeez M49/50 body are also available in the same sets so please let mw know which body you have.

The Beesneez M49/50 body is still available and a new batch is being made. Let me know if you want to reserve one.

Cheers guys

Does the capsule fit the original M50 sphere?
If so, what would be the price without the sphere?

Hi Kevin.

I van’t say whether the capsule will fit into your original sphere as there were too many revisions and small variations.  If you sent me your sphere I could machine a collar that fits snug for you and then no problem.  Same price!

Thanks

Hi all.

So we have been testing the capsule extensively and have settled on pure titanium.  The capsule sounds so good.
Couldn’t be happier.

Would love to have an M50. Really considering jumping in on this.
Some things are best left unsaid

90° and 180° as well as close vs far would be awesome and really crucial having in mind how the mic is used.

I made measurements in home conditions with REW no problem for my DIY K50 capsules. Since they are omni up until higher register inexpensive measurement mics work great as calibration mics.

Ditto. Trying to get a pair from Ben, but he seems to be off the grid more than usual lately. Hope he’s doing ok.

He’s about to get a chance to work on a pair for me. Maybe email him and see if he can do you some at the same time.

Thanks, I just sent him an email. I’m trying to get 3 to make a decca tree for orchestra recordings at UC Davis.

Are you building M50-types or replacing capsules in originals or mics already built? If the former, which bodies, tubes, and transformers you planning?

UC Davis, huh? That’ll be real nice! So you’re in my area, of course. This is Weston Ray. I’ve been doing studio work here for 25-years.

Yeah i moved to Folsom three years ago from LA. Went to Long Beach State for three years then transferred to CSUN where i go my degree in music composition. I think i see you on facebook. I'll send you a request.

I don't know yet on body, transformers, and tubes. I did talk to Dennis at AMI last week so i probably will use there transformers but i'll decide after i can get the capsules.

I’m right on the border of Folsom and Orangevale.

It seems the AMI BV11r transformer plays well with a lot of tubes. It’s what I went with for my 49b types with 6947 tubes; thanks to Scott Humphrey here.

So, I’m probably going to stick with BV11r, but don’t know which tube. I’m also really tempted to try it with the KM53 circuit.

Cool then we are ten minutes from each other. I live right by the Palladio. My studio is in El Dorado Hills in business park 1 but ive been mostly teaching private music students there. I currently have 43.

I was looking at the 6947 tube but really im not sure what i'll try first. I tend to be a little unorthodox but first i'll build m50 stock to Dan's kit. Then based on what i hear i'll start trying different things. So i may not use a standard m50 body.

It would be nice to build a set of pencil mics but waiting on someone to start building capsules or at least pencil bodies that fit neumann or schoeps capsules.
