Our CK12, CK13, and M7 capsules...

The one and only, amazing cv-12 tube mic

Your original post was timely for a guy like me. I’m not a kid, but I’ve built a pretty nice studio buying yesteryear gear and upgrading the components. I know my caps, opamps, transistors, FET’s, Metal film vs carbon resistors and now I’m learning mic circuits and capsules. All my Chinese mics got me into...
