Thanks for the reply, The first mics are just a pair or Studio projects B1s .. These have been dented with drum sticks. given the damage on these more interested in replacement "mesh" then pushing the dents out ( already did that with limited success ).With something like a shure 58 I've often used an off cut of a drum stick , put the rounded back end inside the grill ,hold it at the top and strike it down on a hard surface , with a bit of luck you can tap out the dent and make it look a bit better . Condenser mics with much finer mesh require more carefull handling , you should be able to get some of the way with hand and finger presure , be more carefull if your trying to use blunt force though .
Without more details of which mic your tring to repair its hard to be precise about i
Thanks, Sufjan is a real treasure of an artist. Hoping to find a vender for screens. Also a little guidance of how to measure the "thickness" of them. Something Like this but not mic specific.Hi Kieran,
Inteligent use of blunt force .....
Funny how a drumstick was the original cause of the damage too.
Some mics have the mesh moulded into the headshell ,in some the mesh is replacable/removable and retained by screws.
Congrats on the Sufjan Stevens record , its getting a lot of plays on night time national radio here in Ireland .
Good tip. I've used brass mesh from McMaster for my janky brass pipe U47.
If anyone finds a supplier in the USA that can process mesh into shapes let me know please. We need to make replacement grilles for the front head basket on the RE20, it's a 312 stainless at 16mesh if i recall.
