CMV563 Bayonet adapters? Condenser Microphones

CMV563 Bayonet adapters?

I just received a matched pair of CMV563 with M7s and M55Ks. But they are the short versions that screw directly in.

I also have a big Blue Bottle, and both Bottle Rockets. I have the B6, B7 and B9 as well as an old M8 with bayonet.

I would like to find adapters to attach the M7S to the Blue mics. And a way to attach a B6 to the CMV body.

I contacted Theirsch and they used to make them but no longer do. I’ve read that Microtech Gefell includes them with the CMV reissue, but I don’t see them for sale anywhere.

Does anyone know where I might find these adapters? Or have them for sale yourself?

Update:

I just saw the other almost exact thread (slaps forehead). I bought the adapter for the CMV to use a B6. Now I need to turn my M7S into a bayonet that will fit on my Blue Bottle.

Also... I wonder if the bayonet on the M8 can be unscrewed and used with an M7S?

No, unfortunately, M* and M*s are different designs. There is an aftermarket adapter available to use a bayonet capsule on a CMV that has lost its adapter. I just answered another thread about it here...

It looks like this is what I’m after but they said they no longer make them:

In theory, yes, but I've had no issues in using Neumann capsules which sound great on Blue bodies. On the big Bottle, capsule voltage is adjustable via the power supply.
