Title: Heisermann Capsules
Post by: Mickeyrouse on July 14, 2018, 05:07:06 pm
Does anyone around here have any experience with the Heiserman HK-47 capsule?  More expensive than the Chinese capsules ( of which Oliver Archut was reasonably complimentary), but much less than the real McCoy.

I had one in a DIY U47. Way different than an original one, much more open. Quite a nice capsule, but not a K47. Heiserman himself said on a forum it was not a sonic clone, more of a personnal take on it.

I notice that he states that his build uses dual backplates, like a 67.

I wonder if he’s making that part? Even a lot of supposed ck12 clones from Asia take an approach where they just modify k67 clone parts.

Makes me wonder if Heiserman’s k47 is doing a similar thing. Just taking k67 clone sub parts and making them into a “k47” (however that works). Sometimes makers that flirt with Asian sub parts will just tune a k67 to a lower tension and say “its like a k47 now!”.

Hey all,
I thought I would chime in here.. I will try and stay technical as I can. I don't want to make this an add. :)
So my k47 ish capsule was really just a fun experiment at first that actually sounded pretty good. So a little history.
All of my machining is done in the states by a local guy here in NC, I have him disk off the brass and add the more complicated small threading that I can do on my machine so I essentially get blanks with no holes drilled for 87/67 style capsules. Then I drill the holes on the face. Anyway long story short is I wanted a capsule and only had the 67 style blanks, thought why not give a 47 hole pattern a try. As I'm sure you all know one half of a 67 is only around 4mm thick and a true k47 is 6mm or so.. I had to play with hole size depth etc to get it to sound good but so far I am happy. It's not a true k47 by any stretch. It's a bit more modern sounding, more 10k and above really, But the over all sound is pretty close. Great in a fet47.  No clone parts here.. 100% usa.

Eric, what say you of your CK12? And anyone else want to share their experience with them?
