I'd prefer chromed body to nickel effect body in removable middle section, so might get it chromed up if can find someone to do it cheap.

Quick question - noticed the capsule sits REALLY high inside the head basket. Lo-fi photo below... The top third of the capsule is above metal band of basket. I was curious if it's the same on all your CM6's?? Please check and tell me!
How do you like the Stellar CM6? I recently had a Copperhead and Amethyst Vintage here at the same time. The tube definitely gives you a bigger sound with the Copperhead. For a pop vocal mic, it's the Copperhead, so easy to EQ, totally agree it's my favorite Telefunken mic. Trying to get one to own shortly.
