I think I may pick up a couple of used 460s and try that mods with these. If they're not great, I'll gladly order some better replacements, but I figure they've got to be better than most of the low/mid end brass capsule copies.
The old CK12 nylon capsules will sound quite good in the mic. They are smoother and not as bright as the later CK12 capsules. I put a submini tube in a 414 ULS and the tube circuit sounded very nice,

Good Luck
