The capsule is hand made for us by Bernt Malmqvist himself, fantastic work. To me, it's the only LDC that can do the work of an SDC too if needed, superb on transients.

Here for the gear

I have a question about the mic.
Why walnut?

I guess what I'm asking is, to what degree of engineering was involved when the decision to use walnut for the microphone was made?
Did it have any unique acoustical properties that attributed to the higher quality of the mic, say opposed to using maple or rosewood or other fine hardwoods?

I'm a curious person.

Bumping this old thread of mine just say that many years later I still love this mic. Used it on many different sources and it just works. Still my main vocal mic. I've even had artists come back saying they just don't want to sing into anything else... lol. To add to anything I have written previously in this thread it sounds fantastic on upright and acoustic bass. That lowend is just great.
