This is a rebuild of YOUR transformer-coupled micPlease contact me before purchasing. 

This rebuild applies to transformer-coupled mics such as the MXL2001 or M-Audio Nova (and many others). Your mic’s capsule, electronics and transformer are fully replaced drastically improving the tone and performance. An optional internal pattern switch allows switching between Cardioid and Omni. Without the switch, the mic is fixed cardioid.

Standard Upgrade

  • k47 style Brass Ring or Ck12-style* Capsule in Custom Mounting Cradle
  • All-discrete BFM transformer coupled circuit (Cardioid only)

Transformer Choices

  • The imported (China) T8 style.  This is low cost transformer which performs pretty well. It has a slightly thinner and brighter tone.
  • CineMag (USA) 5722w. This is a very high quality transformer which is still moderately priced. It has a very full, even tone with great harmonic content and transformer crunch. Probably the best choice overall for most applications
  • The Tab-Funkenwerk (USA) T12 style. This is a more expensive transformer. It has a massively fat and full low and low-mid response. Although it has great high frequency response, you may perceive the overall tone as slightly dark because of the extra full lows and low-mids.

*CK12 style capsule may not fit in all mics.
