No Poctop. All capsules are made using similar jigs. Some builders sputter the diaphragms themselves with their own machines. Others send their jigs with pretensioned mylar to industrial vacuum coaters. Or they have sheets of sputtered gold dots made for them, which they tension in their jigs later. The suggestion that you can only make your own capsules if you have a sputtering machine is stupid. Most builders don't have one.poctop's stuff?
I'm not trolling, Banzai is, and has been for the longest time. Right from the start when he was denying any affiliation with Maiku. Try commenting anywhere anything negative about Maiku, whole hell breaks loose.I can tell from your number posts that you're active here - why be a troll?
If small-time capsule makers like Tim Campbell can do the whole process with assembly, gold-sputtering etc as a one-man operation, why should'nt Maiku be able to do the skinning process? Do they really need all those tools you say?

I can not provide proof of what they don't have. I've been asking for a proof on their side which they never provided. I've seen an image of a disassembled generic capsule on a regular work bench and that's it. There is no name behind this company, and all you get is a 3U capsule at a higher price. Guosheng confirmed this via email to me. They make capsules for Maiku.
Not documenting the production/ skinning of the capsules on the website would not be proof. The other known capsule manufacturers do not show this either. For whatever reason, I would do it.
This thread makes me want to create a kit just to prove it: backplates, spacers, diaphragm rings, screws, wires, and gold diaphragms in tensioning jigs. A build your own capsule at home kit
I'm new here, yeah. But I couldn't care less about seniority on a forum. I care about the value of opinions and almost just as importantly how they're communicated. Expertise is nothing on forums like these without the abilities to communicate it properly, in my book.I know that Tim Campbell is a builder, it’s also pretty well know and documented.
I can’t say the same for Maiku company, that’s why I asked. Because it really looks a rebrand from capsules from China, just like Microphone parts. I have no proof of the opposite.
You re a new member here with very few interventions...
Kingkorg replied in this thread because I enquired on the Maiku capsules, so he was just providing information that was asked and he is a very knowledgeable member as far as microphones and capsules. You re out of the line calling that “trolling” actually here we don’t call a different opinions, information or saying the truth “trolling” we just thank for the added info and opinions. This is not gearslutz
I think you misunderstood my postMy MK-47 with Maiku K47 capsule is far from your description even the opposite. A friend of mind who owns a big studio borrowed it to me for a test, and he's been able to compare it with an old Mic & Mod U47 clone, Oliver Archut's design same as EF-47, with a Thiersh capsule on it, and the winner is mine from far, better linear response and solid bottom smooth shinny highs, and beautiful mids.The one with the Thiersh capsule is far behind, especially in the high frequency range, really darker than mine... Uncomparable. But different mics with different designs, transformers tubes and capacitors. The Maiku is perfect for my MK-47 and certainly not Harsh in any way. I'll be able to test it with an M7 Beesneez capsule, I'll let you know.
This is not correct, for most capsule makers you can find videos, photos and info on the production process.
Why should I sue you? The problem is different, ask the person what he thinks about you publishing his business correspondence on the Internet. I know what that would mean for me.Sue me.
The reply is clear, they use THE capsule in their Warbler mics. And there is no denial of their connection to Maiku. And he offers to sell Maiku capsule i asked for. What else would you like?
Ok, i deleted the screenshoot. At this point i'm sure nothing will convince a Maiku fanboy otherwise. After all why should i care how anyone wastes their money.Why should I sue you?

Sorry, what you have posted does not prove your statement. I think you are harming yourself right now.
Good decision, still this will stick with you for a long time. And by the way, I'm not a Maiku fanboy, I don't have a relationship or any products from them.Ok, i deleted the screenshoot.

I don't see how this could impact me in any way. Not like i depend on this or any other forum in any way. As i said, i don't sell anything here. Not here, not anywhere. If anything the forum might lose yet another true contributor interested in empirical values. No matter what i do though can't stop turning this place into Gearsluts II.still this will stick with you for a long time.
