Time to empty out the parts drawer again. Here are some really nice parts for DIY or vintage restorations.

Various transformers and opamps (from left to right):
  • Vintage John Hardy 990 opamps. 24V. 50 EUR for both.
  • Jensen JE-11S-L Nickel Output Transformers. 1:1. 50 EUR for both.
  • 2x Haufe RK270 line-level input transformers. 0,5:1 / 1:1. Mounted on PCB. 30 EUR for both.
  • Vintage VEB Funkwerk Kolleda 1:5 input transformer (RFT/RFZ). 20 EUR.
  • Defect Neumann OA100 opamp on OA12 adapter. Most likely a burnt out output transistor. 5 EUR.
  • Diyfactory AD797 boards with mil-max sockets/genuine AD797's. Mic amp/make-up gain/passive EQ.  Can include the large coupling caps as well. 15 EUR.


Vintage Sennheiser402/1 Caspule (MD409)
Mint condition Sennheiser 402/1 capsule. This is the first generation of the 402/X capsules as used in the MD409. AFAIK, the only difference is that Sennheiser later revised the capsule to use a plastic resonator in front of the diaphragm whereas this used an aluminum resonator to do pretty much the same job.  Some of the later MD409 capsules had different back venting but if you look around you'll find original MD409N's with the exact same back vents as this.

200 EUR


Vintage Sennheiser M100 Preamp
Classic 60's/70's Sennheiser microphone preamp module. This origin from a portable swiss broadcast mixer. It is built for -60 dB noise spec with a high-quality Sennheiser-made iron in front and some nice gold pinned, encapsulated silicon transistors. Seeing as the last amplification stage was done in the EQ or make-up section of the mixer this module roughly has 40-50 dB gain. It would be perfect to combine with an AD797 make-up stage (see below) or use it as is. Just needs  24V, but not been serviced and could probably use a recap.

50 EUR


Nakamichi CP-2 Capsule
Vintage Japanese-made Nakamichi capsule. Modded for a more linear response with the resonator removed. Actually a pretty nice capsule when paired with a standard Schoeps circuit. Sounds very natural. 25 EUR.


DIY Microphone Parts
Capsules are Primo EM200 cardioid, EM184 cardioid and the EM173 Omni from Micbooster. These were chosen as the best candidates for DIY-ing a nice SDC for instrument recording. Includes grommets and mounting brackets and Teflon silver wire. Two genuine Neumann KM-series empty capsules for mounting the capsules.

I have som body blanks to be included as well, at no extra cost. These are just black powder-coated aluminum tubing cut to length. The inner diameter matches that of a normal XLR insert for a low-cost DIY option.

50 EUR

The capsule you are selling was used in MD403 and some early MD407 mics and to my knowledge not in MD 409/Echolette ES14. It is basically the same capsule chassis, but your capsule will not produce the MD409 sound, but a sound, that is bass shy. The reasons are the differend reflector and differend rear venting, though it appears the same, if you don`t look carefully. Of course it can be rebuit to sound just like a MD409.
I find it within the limits of possibility, that this type of capsule was used in  some of the first MD409s, but then,  it was with clear rolled off bass and I have never met that. Of course there are a lot of bass shy MD409s out there, but the reason is normally, that they are not working properly anymore.  The biggest reason is the deteriorating foam getting sticky and doing damage, but there are other reasons too.
