Yeah looks cool but how do you fix your pcb on those standoffs ? like this ? https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/1005002070638091.html  :-[

I can see the PCB moving up and down that way

Yeah if I'm building a U47 I'm not gonna have a tube circuit "fixed" that way...
Too bad, price is really good and otherwise looks fine

Yeah I’m thinking about bending some metal strips the right size. And drill some holes on both sides and halfway (for the pcb).

Or buy some strips like this (https://schneidersladen.de/de/gewindestreifen-84te) and have some L shaped hooks on both ends.. gonna be a puzzle..

The price is so low that you can be creative in many ways to replace those standoffs for another system and still being pretty cheap in the end.
I don't find that adapting an L-Shaped or U-Shaped metal bar would be something difficult to do.

i have seen where ring terminals are on/between the standoff posts and the solder tags of the terminals go in slots cut into the edge of the pcb wher'st tack weld/mechanical solder joints occur.

a step above ill fitting zip ties

Got the mic body from the link I posted today.

Pros:

It's a very heavy hefty body. Beautifully made. 3-layer mesh which wad not specifically written on page.


Cons:

Packaged in the equivalent of a sock. Headpiece sustained minor almost barely noticeable bend. 2 or 3 dings on the body. I'm going to bring up to them that the body should be packaged better, but for the price, it's kind of a steal.

Cool. Thanks for the info. Just ordered one too. Fingers crossed..

Got it too...

It is similar to u47 but not exact... If I have enough time, I'll try to do some photos of Aputis, Two other chinese U47, Flea and first of the Peluso u47 inspired bodies ...

But for the price is the great buy ...

Would love to see side by side compassion. I've never seen a real u47 in person and closest I've seen is the WA-47 and I like this body better than thet one.

There will be quite a few differences.

One of them is the Grille Mesh, it's a different size and pattern

What is the best way to go about get a regular pcb in a u47 body with standoffs? It's proving more difficult than i thought it would be.

Can you machine some square or rectangular metal bars to setup in place of the standoffs?

I don't really the means to do that. May just walk around a hardware store on a day off this week and see if anything comes to mind.

Could you use some zip ties? Maybe file/cut little notches in the standoffs to help prevent the zip ties from sliding?
