580-MHR0317SA108F70 is too big. You'll have problems making it fit.

588-MOX-200001007JE is same size.

I am having a super hard time sourcing 1 G ohm resistors at a decent price in France / Europe. Anybody has some in spare , or ideas where I could get them ?

588-MOX-200001007JE from Mouser is 5,3euros a piece + 20e shipping so that's 47 euros for 4 resistors !

Looks great! I’m still waiting on mine to come back from powder coating…no word so far.

I got a cheap wooden box and filled it with foam (I cut the mic shapes out of the foam) and covered with fabric. I don't think in total it was cheaper than the Pelican case but I also needed to get the 141s into a box so the extra space was nice. Wooden Box.jpg

They are not the same size, the Pelican you posted is much smaller than the one I posted, so it depends of the dimension the user needs.
There's also smaller Chinese copies for much less than the Pelican.

But Pelican is great of course, I think it's a great advice.

Also the shipping costs depends on seller, I just used that link but there's other sellers selling the same product with much cheaper shipping costs.

Best Regards

Actually, these big 1gig resistors fit properly if you use just one stand-off on the right, and « float » the 1gig resistor on the left with the gate.

I have a question that I suspect will out me as the mic novice that I am. 😅 I haven't yet biased the FETs in my pair, but I have watched through the video suggested in the guide. I do not have bench testing equipment -- I typically use my interface and DAW for tone generation / meters / etc. It seems simple enough to do that here as well, except that I'm wondering if a line out from my interface would cause problems in the measurements due to mismatched impedance... I know that mic output impedance is quite low, but I don't know what injecting a line level signal in would do. Or perhaps I'm overthinking it.

Also, I've got a TS-to-alligator clip cable. Would this work here, assuming that the above is not a concern? Or would I need to figure out something with a TRS connection?

Also, still no word from the powder coating shop. I'm too impatient. :LOL:
