How goes the rebuild?


I send the dreaded VR off <<to one of the industry's most august experts>> for the complete rebuild this next week.

Once again, if he says OK, I will post about what is being done, and why, and how the microphone changes.

Best regards.

john musgrve does some amazing upgrades to the V series.
the center section gets a makeover and he has designed his own multi layered motherboards to replace the old ones.
i've used them at conway and they definitely are hugely improved over the stock board.

Hi John,

414eb nylon/414eb brass ring

"other then opening them up, how can you tell when surfing ebay for them?"

Sometimes you can tell the difference if there is a good photo of the capsule through the grill.

You can see the white nylon ring,  or the brass surface with the little screws going around.  

I have been able to tell,  sometimes not.  

Careful with this --as some other capsules have the screws also  -you can spot some  pelusos as they are bigger in diameter..(I was temporarily had on this once myself)

thanks j
