That's why i love the early Neumann mics... it's easy to fix.
Now, try to fix a TLM..... Twisted Evil

Here is a picture of the broken connection. On the lower right side.
The mic falling must have put pressure on this connection breaking it. Soldered it and was back in action.

Looks like the gate wire of the FET came loose, breaking the connection with the capsule. Nice easy fix.  Smile

Music can make me get right up out of my chair and start dancing or it can get me so pumped up I have to walk around the block.
It can also knock me back and make me sit there and cry like a little baby. This shit is as powerful as any drug!!!
