    You know, there's not really much too that mic... it looks like the hardest part to making one is the PCB and housing. Does it have Behringer, 797 Audio, nothing, or what printed on the other side of the PCB?

    That's why you pay $39.99

    <Does it have Behringer, 797 Audio, nothing, or what printed on the other side of the PCB?>

    Have a look. Sorry, I took a picture after I started working on that. I had only 1W Zener, so I put it on the other side--it was not there originally.

    Well, the PCB will be easier for someone to copy now that we can see both sides... thanks. I wonder who made the PCB. What's the added diode for... regulating?

    Precisely! The original was at 6V, I need more, so this zener sets the voltage.

    I'm guessing. I see that on all measurement mics. I'm guessing that because of the small capsule the design is intended to minimize hard surfaces near the capsule that might reflect sound.

    That makes sense... but, I wonder if the long neck might also contribute some noise? Is the neck hollow or is it packed with something?

    It's an omni capsule so it's sealed in back. IT responds to pressure. And tdukex is right on about the narrow neck; it's designed that way to prevent acoustic shadowing from interfering with the response.

    Thanks Harvey.

    Now I'm wondering if shock mounting the capsule in some way might also help keep noise down... does anyone have any thoughts about this?
