Here for the gear
 

My private mike list

Here's my contibution
I use to colect mikes
These are the mikes I own and that list does not include all the other ones I usually work with at my favourite studios in Paris ( i work a lot at www.audiolane.fr)
mikes I like include : 47 tube, 47 fet, TLM 170, AKG Tube, Langevin CR3A, Sanken Cu44, DPA 4006 (that one is amazing), AKG 480 (a newer 460), Schoeps Collette etc...RE 20 of course, SM 7 too !

anyway I Now have too many Mikes ! of course each one has it's very own qualities but I'm gonna start selling or trading a few of these. I usually keep pairs but when I have a few pairs of neutral mics, a few pair of Mid boosting mics, a few pairs of bass boosting mics, and a few pairs of high end boosting mikes I think that should cover it !

all of them work but with some old decorative guys you can never know if they work like they did when they were new or if they sound strange because that's how they were built !

I own 90 mikes
I guess I ll be an official Mike a Holic after 100 ?

PG52
Gemini gm-22
Some realistic carioid dynamics I can't remeber the modle for, they make good tom mics.
Crap ton of nady starpower sp1s. Needed to run a stage show with no budget. Needed stands mics and cables. At $25 a pop they were worth it for the stands and clips.

These are low enders? Quite some collections here for low enders.

Me, I have 12 MCA SP-1's I paid $39.95 for. Yes, I also have expensive mics too, but you all know about those...

Those MCA's are indentical to the new MXL990, just a different case and pcb. Standard Schoeps circuits and no iron insides.

I recently replaced a couple capsules with a C-12 and U-47 knock-offs that were very cheap.

K47 and CK12 Microphone Capsules | Microphone Parts

The C-12 has that same lift at 10k, good smooth mids. The 47 has the gravel lift at 3~5k hz without the 12 k hz ring of most Chi-com capsules.

I always wanted a U-47, that comes close enough for me. The C-12 sound is also something I don't have here as all my 414's are flat capsule designs. This offers the traditional lifted tops of the C-12 designs. These capsules also fit the MXL 990 easily.

They also provide the molded plastic base these use for an easy mount. Without that, capsule replacement is a big problem.

Hey Jim, what mounting base should I use for the SP-1, if installing one of those K47 capsules you linked to? The capsule builders include one base with each order, but I wasn't sure that base would fit my SP-1.

Get the large black plastic rounded base version, it looks just like what's already in there, but it's black plastic. Fortunately, I didn't know which mount would work but they sent both to me free. I ended up slicing off a bit of the molded tips that are supposed to fit into the holes of the metal mounting plate, because it wouldn't fit all the way in. Order that same mount if you are retrofitting the MXL 990. I recommend removing the 2 inner screens if you do this, the tops are much reduced from the stock capsule so you will not want to filter out any more of that. If you want, you can glue in a small push switch onto the inside PCB of the MCA SP-1 and wire the rear capsule to it, that way you can switch to omni mode too, something a U-47 won't do. If you align the case, you could drill a hole in it to access that switch with a small screwdriver blade.

Yes, it does that U-47 thingy very well. For a $39.99 mic and $99 capsule, it's a no brainer. Do those other parts swaps covered in similar threads, those ceramic caps have got to go.

Jim,

Thanks very much for the info--I really appreciate that you take the time to respond! Looking forward to messing with this rig. And that omni option is freakin' cool... if the initial mods go well, I may take that one on.
Probably do the capsule and caps first, and see what that does to the sound.

Mod on!
