DIY Studio Condenser Mic. 11 years ago Hi there, the website you link no longer exists, and I'm finding in very difficult locating useful information on a simple condenser mic like this. In your final link I think it should be http://www.diycondensermics.com (you missed out the s) :), Thank you! Phantom power is a +48v (typically) dc current that is applied to two of the pins on an XLR connector, that is used to create a reference for the Mic capsule. Most newer Mics that require phantom power, also have the option of using a (or sometimes 2-3) 9v batteries, just in case phantom power is not available.The schematic below shows the 9v circuit. Use the schematic as reference. Neumann's \"holy grail\" of workhorse condenser mics is now closer within reach than ever before, thanks to a capsule and body from http:///www.microphone-parts.com and circuit boards from Dany Bouchard (http://vintagemicrophonepcbkit.com).For more info, including the cost and options for this project, check out the full post at http://www.diyrecordingequipment.com/5345/how-to-build-vintage-u87/ DIYer Matthew Jenkins walks us through his build, employing parts from Cinemag (cinemag.biz) and Mouser. on Introduction. on Introduction. We’re in a golden age of audio gear kits, with more manufacturers than ever offering DIY kits to build high-quality gear. If it works congrats! Here is a view of the bottom side of the board, so you can see how I soldered everything. Judging from this picture:- C3 is tantalum, but what is it's orientation? 6 years ago Are you sure that your schematic correctly labels these three values?Thanks, Mitch. Where can i get the xlr pin thing with leads so i can put it on my circuit? By bigdatapimp in Circuits Audio. And it's voltage rating?- C3 and C4 are identical, but notably larger than C1, even though they both appear to be metal-poly caps. 10 years ago - http://www.diycondensermics.com. Did you make this project? Because Condenser Mics use the capacitance variation to create the signal, the element must be electrically charged. - http://www.diycondensermics.comThese Mics are highly sensitive, and be setup to use a 9v battery if you don't have phantom power. For WM-61A, it should be 2.2K, but some other Electret Condenser Microphones may have a different value. Try it out. on Introduction, You have got to be kidding me :-) Building this kit is easy and is well illustrated in its manual. You know that you'll always be able to use phantom power with you mic, you can just leave it out to make it simpler. If you can wield a soldering iron, there are many kits to choose from. Share it with us! on Introduction, Reply Condenser Mics use this to produce a signal, as opposed to Dynamic Mics, which use magnetic vibration to produce a signal. What's going on there? Your schematic in the first step simply describes four 10uF caps, but not their types. 9 years ago Go to http://www.diycondensermics.com/schem.htm.... there you find the schematic in a larger size, and you will be able to view it blown up. I have found it easiest to try to assemble it as close to the schematic (in actual layout) as possible, at least if not using a printed board. Nice project, but i need more detailed informations about the 9v power supply. its possible. Condenser Mic elements work similarly to capacitors, who's capacitance varies when the diaphragm vibrates. Plus there is more info in general for building the Mics. Where are the outputs for connecting the microphone ? Once you have all the parts, get your soldering Iron out and start building. 56. Thus we have Phantom Power! on Step 2. Once everything is inplace and soldered down, give it whirl! 10 years ago You can put them into pretty much anything, ...", Reply You can put them into pretty much anything, and they can be made pretty small. If you design your own circuit, then probably you do not need to follow any further instructions here. I always wanted a side-address small-diaphragm condenser mic just for visuals, like the Neumann KM56 that John Lennon is singing into on the cover of the LET IT BE album. Is using phantom power dangerous if something gets soldered wrong, because I've heard that it can backfire and fry the mixer (or at least the channel). Thanks, Is there any way we could get this circuit with better resolution.. i try to zoom in but it just blurs it all.. Great work tho.. "...phantom power. on Introduction, Actually this is true you need to be aare that you are sticking 48 Volts and potentially a couple of 100 mA into some delicate equipment.
