Why should I replace the plate?

Gerrit - Antwoord

This guide was done as part of the capsule replacement—I don’t think there is any reason to solely replace the plate unless there was corrosion on it.

  • Never open the microphone capsule. Attempting to open the capsule will likely result in permanent damage and make the microphone unusable.

  • Using an adjustable crescent wrench, remove the nut and washer from the face plate by twisting the nut counterclockwise.

  • Slowly, pull upward while twisting the black plastic piece clockwise.

  • Be careful not to scratch the copper microphone capsule. Another face plate may fall out when removing capsule.

  • Never open the microphone capsule. Attempting to repair the capsule will result in permanent damage.

Can you replace the yellow tape/cable if broken? (seen in last pic)

Honestly, I’m not sure. If I was in your position, I would assume a similarly sized piece of electrical tape should be fine, but if you’re not sure you may want to contact a repairman.

Thanks for that,

Can i just replace the capsule as seen in the last picture?

Has it to be resoldered? Where do those very fine copper wires go?

Eanoid - Antwoord

It's been a few years since I made the guide and no longer have any microphones nearby to examen, but if I remember correctly, there is no soldering between the capsule and the housing. I believe the housing is soldered to the rest of the body with the silver leads at the bottom left of the picture.
