Microphone Schematics and Circuit Descriptions
« on: February 02, 2009, 04:31:14 pm »
Step right up and post your schematics, whether factory-issued or hand-drawn, here;
Please label them clearly (for example: "AKG C24 MK II"...

When perusing any of this material posted here, no claims of responsibility are made  by the poster, moderator, or host company of this site as to accuracy or potentially catastrophic mic (or human health) failure.

If you need circuit info that is officially sanctioned and blessed by the mic's manufacturer, approach the manufacturer (or its successor) directly.

And always remember when working on high voltages inside mics and power supplies- one hand works, and the other hand stays behind your back!

Now enlighten the community and post your treasures!

AKG Schematics Collection
« Reply #5 on: February 02, 2009, 09:49:14 pm »
I recently stumbled on Corey Eng's "Pro Audio Repair Site", on which there's a useful collection of schematics for AKG ,Neumann, and Telefunken. I hadn't seen the C12 interconnection diagram before.

http://www.geocities.com/siliconvalley/peaks/5212/start.htm

Corey used to work for AKG in USA.

The Neumann Story - Ernst Weiss -Studio Sound Part 1
« Reply #6 on: February 03, 2009, 01:31:34 am »
Originally from Studio Sound July 1984, perhaps this was a reprint from RE/P or MIX.Interesting Neumann history but with serious paydirt about capsule manufacture and test on page 4. I've scanned rather poor copies from the '90s.

If anyone has really detailed explanations of circuits, I'd love to see them on this thread too, especially for the often discussed circuits such as the U87, I'd really like to read an explanation that goes through and explains every part of the circuit in detail.
