Altec 29b capsule service
« on: January 24, 2007, 07:12:31 AM »

I have here an Altec 195 condenser mic, with a 29b capsule.  The mic has an intermittent low frequency spike that occurs when the mic is moved, but it otherwise sounds great.  I've tested the mic with a 21d capsule, and the problem disappears.  

So - are these capsules serviceable?

The 29b is supposed to be an AKG CK1, with Altec's mount.  Maybe AKG can service it for you?

They say the heart of Rock & Roll is still beating, which is amazing if you consider all the blow it's done over the years.

"The Internet enables pompous blowhards to interact with other pompous blowhards in a big circle jerk of pomposity." - Bill Maher

"The negative aspects of this business, not only will continue to prevail, but will continue to accelerate in madness. Conditions aren't going to get better, because the economics of rock and roll are getting closer and closer to the economics of Big Business America." - Bill Graham
