Getting my capsules confused

(hopefully not an unforgivable sin around these parts)

The K67 does have two backplate halves screwed and held together with four screws. The K47 has one backplate.

Even if you had two K49 capsules, you cannot remove the sides with the conductive diaphragm. It will fall apart as soon as you unscrew the 12 diaphragm mounting screws.

It is something that has been bothering me slightly for a while,
Is it possible to use two of these capsules to make one useable (and functionally identical) k49/k47 type capsule?

From memory there are four longer screws in each k47 type capsule which connect the two halves of the backplate... does undoing those screws de-tension anything? Is it possible to put the halves back together afterwards?

Price range, maybe, but not part number: K47fet capsule = 053223.

Unlike the K49fet capsule, I have not seen a K47fet capsule without sputtering on the rear. But corners are cut every day everywhere....

I guess they are sonically the same as the K47-fet or K49 when used in cardio mode ?
EDIT : found on this very forum, that Neumann confirmed this to Klaus.

Brad Blackwood was featured on Tony Mantzís recent Mastering Music Mastering Life podcast; they shined a light on the origins of this group.

I hope that it inspires others to join, participate, and mine this forum for great knowledge.

 ... but it must include a healthy discount for this forum's mainstays! Otherwise it would be just shameless free advertising!

Hey there,

If you are still looking for a way to make this mount work again - I have a PERFECT solution.

I got a custom nylon shoulder washer made, mated it with a pair of stainless steel washers and the results are smooth, long term stable and totally dependable.

I had to meet a minimum for the shoulder washer order so I have plenty for everyone.

Im thinking of offering sets for sale to people who want to keep these fantastic mounts in service.

send me a PM thru the site if you are interested - I can provide photos.

But keep in mind what I try to emphasize any time we talk about tubes for microphones, even the very best:
Test each tube individually in the mic the tube is intended for and leave it on for at least 48hrs straight-

Hi Klaus,
Wanted to know if these look like the Amperex tubes you talk about?

Both amplifiers work perfectly with "capsule A".
The problem follows "Capsule B" with either amplifier.

The capsules are seemingly impossible to remove from the housing/body itself.  But at least I can rule out the amplifiers now.  (Should have done that as first step.)

The surface of Capsule A diaphragm actually looks much more contaminated than capsule B, so I don't think it's that...

Any other thoughts about this?
