Here in Kansas city...there is a brick and morter Musicians Friend...(the distributer where all the returns go to, and stuff is shipped from). I bought my 319 for $30 there.

The best mod of the MK219 is the MK319 Very Happy Remove the cover when using it...you may need to use a saw...be careful.


That's where I got my 319s. Same price too. They were marked $60 I was like, "... ehhh...." the salesman was like... well how about 2 for $60.

The transformer in 219 is unmarked. I've found that there are two 271, three Jamicon SK 1uF 160V 85C capacitors and one Jamicon TK 47uF 10V 105C capacitor in the mic - both listed here: http://www.icd-sales.com/JamiconProducts.asp

They aren't high quality capacitors as I understand. What ones would make best replacement?

Inferon,

There should be also two 680pf caps, and one 3.3uf. To start with, I would suggest to replace three "crucial" caps. Instead of 680pf from capsule use nice polystirene cap, with value up to 1000pf. Another one would be coupling cap to transformer. Here use nice polypropilene 1uf (Wima would be good), if you can find right size to fit, or change it for Black Gate electrolytic (it is one of the very best electro caps ever made). 47uF replace with BG, as well.
