A preferred source for buying microphone elements?
I have a vintage microphone that is in pretty poor shape. The coil inside the element has broken off on one side and I would have to slightly unwind the coil in order to be able to pass the magnet wire back through far enough to reattach it. On top of that, the transformer inside the mic was wired in a very odd manner and someone has clearly tampered with it, so who knows what has been done to it.
I am considering buying a new dynamic mic element and replacing the old one with it entirely. Can anyone recommend a preferred source for buying decent mic elements without having to but a whole microphone? At that, anyone know where to buy vintage mic elements?
