    MXL 4000 repair

    I have a MXL 4000 mic that the polar position switch is AFU. Anyone know of a source for parts? It just solders to a board so it should be an easy fix, just need the part. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Mike.

    Matt at microphoneparts.com might be able to get you what you need. There are several online mic repair/mic modders that might be able to help you.

    Thanks Toastedgoat, for the help. Hate to scrap a mic that can be repaired for a reasonable fee.

    Try Mouser or DigiKey, if it's just the switch you should be able to find a replacement that's close enough

    You could get a different capsule replacement from Dave Thomas: Advanced Audio Microphones - Professional microphones at affordable prices. We provide studio quality mics for the home and pro recording industry. and you can't beat the price.

    AK47 would drop in (same size) but would have a different sound. You could also go cheaper at Capsules & Element - Microphone Accessories -Online Drop Shipping Supplier
