Not off topic at all. Thanks for the input!

I'm scouting for a multi-pattern ldc. I love the idea of the old c414 with the brass capsule, but the Peluso looks like it might be good alternative. Sony c-48 might be a contender, as well.

Akg isn't making that capsule any more. I'm asking if the limited shelf life of the old brass capsules makes spending 2 grand on a 414 eb a bad idea.

AKG c12 capsule

What's the consensus on the shelf life of these? Are the mics with these brass caps worth their asking prices?

Where else to look for other quality multi pattern ldc mics?

Nice build! Amps sound so much better when they aren't sitting on the floor.

I have used sticky gels and even taped paper towels to cymbals to tame crash and excess sizzle. I always try to get the source to sound like I want it to. I'm not that good at mic placement!

Ampeg Gemini is a great combo for basses. I have used the 1x12, but I bet the 1x15 sounds great too.

Tascam TSR8 can be found in that price range on the 'bay sometimes. Maybe a little more w/shipping.

Mine is a workhorse, and is 1/2 inch.

EV RE11. Maybe not a sleeper, but I love it on vocals, and it might not be an obvious choice.

Wellll...I spoke too quickly. Now MY 301 is producing a loud hum when it is in mode 2,4,5 or 6. Does that sound like a leaky cap somewhere to you guys?

I have been thinking about getting one of those kits that has the new roller and "intake pad" that that guy from Australia sells on the bay. Mine is a beast with a mind of it's own. Sometimes it works really well and sometimes it doesn't. Lately it has been behaving very well. With mine I think sooo...

No shame in asking at all. I swear my old Space Echo has moods. Somedays it behaves much better than others.

It's always nice to hear about one that was behaving badly and then was coaxed back to normalcy with some TLC.
