There are no hard rules to this, but below is a general guide to choosing a flavor based on the intended use. The table headings are indicating Transformerless (TL) and Transformer-Coupled (TC) for both K47 and CK12 style capsules. Generally, the K47 builds are more versatile but the CK12 capsules can really shine in some specific applications. The TL builds are more pristine but the TC builds have more harmonic color. Most microphones can be rebuilt in any of the configurations below (with a few exceptions). Please contact us for more specific details.
