I assume you mean "The Country Boy's Capacitor Microphone" article - no, it came up on another thread recently, and I searched my files and never found it.

My best recollection was that it was nearly identical to this one, but used the Primo EM-21 capsule, mounted on a handmade body.

Yes, exactly this article I've been looking for for a while. I have also started the thread in question, so far without success.

Tape -op magazine Rock ,
thats one of the articles and theres others

We could offer him honorary lifetime membership here .
Maybe Pucho knows Dave .
Thanks, but I know all the Tape Op articles from Dave Royer. That's why I would have liked to read the original Glassaudio "The Country Boy's Capacitor Microphone" article. I guess the content won't be much different than the Tape Op article, I'm just curious. Probably this one is still copyright protected and can't be published even by the author.

Really a great guy - his profile is probably too high for him to do something like this now, but around 2000, he actually sent me (without my even asking) scans of a couple of schems for 6AK5-based tube mic preamps, since I'd inquired about their use as a cathode follower in mics.

6AK5s have very similar characteristics to the 5840 submini he uses a lot. I used his 6AK5 circuit to convert an Oktava 319 to tube operation. They can be quite microphonic, however.

MKL is just the code Oktava use for their range of tube mics .

Thx, Tubetec. I had searched a bit and came across the Oktava, but Goofle also suggested MXL :cool:
