Anyone been inside a HM-7U? The mic's outer housing shell doesn’t seem to want to clear the pad / low cut switches. Is there a trick?
Thanks!

from looking online, looks pretty standard. I would suspect the bottom unscrews. From there the main bulk of the shell should come out by pulling down(do not use force I could be wrong)
From there the grill appears to have screws holding it on that are part of where the capsule mount is attached to.
At least that is how a lot of mics are assembled overseas. so maybe try in that direction?

Thanks, but like I was saying, the pad and low cut switches stick out and the tube can't clear them to just slide off...

you'll have to send a photo then. Any photo I found online looks like there is a cut out that basically allows the body to fit around the switch because the top of the body is cut off at those points and not a complete circle.
