thanks for the suggestions, for whatever reason craigslist never crossed my mind. i'll keep an eye out.

I just realized that most of my mics are condensers, aside from two sm57's. do they make an inline adapter for phantom power?

very cheap, simple 4 track

I have never even thought about venturing into the true analog world but I would like to give it a try. I play strictly acoustic now and want to see how it sounds to tape. Need a recommendation for a very budget friendly 4 track. The cheapest but still functioning machine is what I am looking for. :...

Redco cable

I managed to lose all my speaker cables and I've been sharing one remaining cable with four amps now... time to make some more. I'm ready to place an order for 20 feet of Redco 14 guage speaker cable. It's 45 cents per foot. I'm not an audiophile nor do I believe my speaker cable will make my amp so...

In my limited experience carbon film resistors are just as quiet as metal film. I would start with getting some information on any transistors in the circuit and looking up the modern (if its an older tranny), low-noise equivalent. Those caps are fairly high quality so no worries there.

I've had a 219 modded Michael actually! I sold it and kept a stock one around...now I am kind of missing it. I also want to learn a bit about whats going on inside these mics, which isn't much really.

My question was just a matter of what type of components to use.

Oktava 219 mods

I have my 219 open and I just removed the extra windscreen, removed those metal gates on the outside, and those HF resonate discs as well. I'd like to replace the components with higher quality ones as well. I was thinking of using Poly film or metal stack film capacitors to replace all those tiny t...

i recently had an external hard drive die on me and for some reason i can't just blame it on a faulty drive. it was a three week old WD MyBook and out of no where it choked. i know unshielded speakers can do strange things to nearby hard drives and i'm hoping my infinity bookshelves are shielded. is...

I used to own a 219 modded by Michael Joly, yes. But why would that let you assume I know how it is modded or what is needed to do so? I never had a reason to open the mic up and eventually had to sell it to finance a more necessary purchase. Maybe my post should have been better served as a private...

Does anyone have tips as to how to mod the MK-219? What kind of material do you use? Do you place it below the capsule around the electronics?
