microphone repairs in europe?

A few years in to touring and I find myself owning a handful of microphones that are not working. Nothing too fancy but still hurts seeing them all in my drawer unusable.

To be more specific:
- sennheiser e935
- sennheiser M421
- audio technica atm650
- beyer dynamic m201
- beyer dynamic TG52D
- Heil Sound PR48
- Audix OM7

As you can see, all these microphones are from different companies making it a bit more complicated if i choose to send them to the companies official repair centers. Shipping/labor would come out expensive if i choose to ship each mic to a different technician representing each company since each mic would get charged the minimum labor fee (30-50 euros) regardless of wether it takes 5 minutes or 5 hours.

Is there no one I can just send all these mics to? I live in Greece, so the closer the better.

Personally I always send a mic. back to the manufacturer, as only then can you be really sure it's back up to spec.

The Sennheiser e935 is probably unrepairable economicaly as they are made automatically. I think the basket is easily replaceable, but if it needs a new capsule the repair would probably be more than a new mic.

BUT - contact Sennheiser as they may have a special price for a "repair replacement" - ie: sell you a new one at a special price in return for the old one.

The MD 421 should be repairable, no problem.

The beyerdynamidcs I would send back to the M/F and the Heil as well.
