sennheiser md441 "umbaukit" tuchel to xlr!


i bought a silver md441 with tuchel on ebay.
i already have a blackfire md441 with a xlr connector that is in good conditions and works.

the seller sold the silver md441 as defect.

so now i opened both microphones cause i wanted to try to put the xlr connector from the blackfire into the silver one.

there are some problems.
there are more cables in the blackfire than in the silver version.

in the blackfire there are
two green, one red, one blue and one yellow cable going to the filter.the yellow cable is cut in the middle.
from the filter the red and the blue cable is connected to the XLR. also on the XLR connector is a black cable(mass).

in the silver version i have green, yellow, red and blue connected to the filter, ...and red and blue from the filter to the tuchel.

so i put the xlr connector from the blackfire into the silver but it doesnt work.
there is a signal when i touch or knock on the chassis but it doesnt react on voice.

is there maybe anything tricky with the filter cabling?

and why is the yellow cable cut?

thanks a lot.

First, this link that has further info:
MD441-N change DIN to XLR

A blackfire with so many wires? I'm going to have to open mine and have a look. Did you contact your local Sennheiser people? They are usually very friendly. Where are you located?
I'm going to dig up more info, stay tuned or write me a PM.
