U47 Fet repair

am buying a vintage (not re issue) Neuman U47 Fet. it makes a popping noise once or twice during the first 20 minutes of use. Almost sounds like a wind noise like when you use an sm 57 outside. Who can I trust to service it? Ohio area?

Dunno about Ohio, but Ive repeatedly sent my mics to Tom Onofrio.

He has worked on my vintage U87 and KM84s, MD441, and SM7

Outstanding work, rather quick, and excellent communication.

Tom Onofrio. Tom was the sennheiser /Neumann USA mix repair guy for a long time. He now works for himself, has a great relationship with Neumann for parts, has Klaus Heyne’s stamp of approval, is super fast, and reasonably priced. He’s worked on a number of my mics and they came back awesome. His turn around was so fast it caught me off guard.
