There are multiple transformer options.Any ideas where to find transformers for this project? The ebay seller that is linked does not ship to Greece for some reason.
Less height on the turret is fine, it'll fit in there nicely, BUT you might find inserting them into the PCB a little tight without enlarging the holes on the PCB, or trimming down the teflon on the turret. The reason I'd used the ones I did was that the holes make mounting C2 really easy on the underside of the board. I'm guessing you can do it with the ones you've ordered, but it's probably not quite as straight forward as poking the legs through the turret holes and soldering them in. Good luck though. It's a pain those BOM ones are back ordered at mouser!!I ordered a couple of these on the off chance that they'll work as replacements for the standoffs in the BOM (got those too, but as everyone knows by now, they're backordered for awhile). As far as I can tell, the only differences are the height and that the ones in the BOM are "hollow." Not sure if Banzai can chime in on whether these will work (since I obviously don't have the boards yet to test), but if so, they are currently in stock.
I've thought about something similar to this, but set up for XY stereo micing. For your KM86 idea we'd need a method for switching patterns and a wee bit of playing around to mount the two capsules, not to mention a new head-basket.Any thoughts on what would be required mechanically to put two of these capsules 180° from each other to create a sort of KM86 style mic?
