Brauner VM1 Tube Replacement / Anyone do it?

Hi, I looked in my manual and did not find any info on how to change the tube (model?) in my VM1. I spoke with a tech once (Brauner referred) about it and the time turnaround was kinda lengthy (6-8 weeks).
Is there soldering involved? Easy or not? Diagrams anywhere?
As always, any info I greatly appreciate.

You know I probably should have brought that up as well. It seems to have a shrillness that has developed over time. But, I may be wrong. I have had it 3-5 yrs. Kinda looking ahead. So I do not know if the tube is bad or not. Thanks for the interest.

. . . . then I would send it in to a reputable mic tech. I have a VM1 and though it can be semi bright . . . (obviously) "shrill" should not come into play (as you know) . . . not sure I would necessarily or automatically consider that a tube issue if it did. Depends on what you are talking about . . . . could be other things. As I'm sure you know . . .good mics deserve some looking after from time to time by a reputable person to get optimum usage.

You heard from THE man at the other forum. It doesn't get much more knowledgeable then him. He knows that mic inside and out as you know
