I'm interested in a pair of bodies and CK12 capsules.  Plus a pair of Dan's PCB's, too.

Just one question:  Would it be possible to get a headbasket with the ELA M 251 design?  Beesneez bodies are absolutely gorgeous, but the headbasket design appears to be somewhat different.  Anyone know if it changes the sound (better, worse, or just different)?

I am in for a body.  What connector is it setup for ideally in the base?

What's the expected timeline?

Will the body look just like the one in the OP, or is there a chance to alter the design? I'd love to get one that's closer in looks to the original, with the two-tone headbasket, even if it just has the separating bar on the outside and we have to paint the back black ourselves :)

...I was wondering if anyone who has already acquired one of these bodies can provide the exact body tube width, so that a proper shockmount can be chosen...

Thanks!


*EDIT*
For those stateside, I have found an alternate source for a compatible shockmount:

Hi all.  The body tube diameter is 51mm!  We have a mount that guts that mic perfectly.  They are usually $120.  We can do them for $70 for this group buy.  We are wrapping things up here in America and in 7 weeks we will be back home in our australian home once more.  Once we arrive home, we expect to be able to ship this group buy within 4 - 6 weeks.  Veronica will be in touch very soon to get the ball rolling with order lists etc.

Thanks all.

Ben

This group buy will be for bodies and capsules only or also possible for pcb (one order for all)? Or do I have to order pcb from Dan?
I'm in for one though.

So this is the group buy?  Possible to get it without the capsule?
