    Build the MS Alice Stereo Microphone

    Hey, cool! Please do.I'm testing out another idea, which is to open up the holes at the base of the post and line them with rubber grommets that an M2.5 screw can still pass through. (They're servo grommets from the hobby shop of your choice.) It too stiff to be ideal, but I want to see if it'll reduce any of the handling noise.

    Oooh cool! Looking forward to them. I was thinking about a four capsule mic, too, after talking to someone about double M-S. I'm eager to see what you come up with.

    Again, great tutorial, Jules!I opted for a 3D printed mic saddle and post. (I didn't even try to machine one on the mill.) With the figure-eight capsules side-by-side like this it just barely fits through the base of the headbasket, but it does work.Like the saddle and post I designed for the TSB-2555B capsule, I stuck these on Thingiverse and Shapeways in case anyone else wants to go this route.http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2036508https://www.shapeways.com/product/B77A9MZ6E/ms-ali...I used the one from Shapeways when I built mine, and attached the capsules with E6000 adhesive.I've been using both mics for field recording. I've attached a picture of the M-S Alice on the same stand as my SASS while I was doing side-by-side testing. I'm really impressed by the M-S Alice. It's a superb...

It's a superb mic, and a great addition to any mic locker. Thanks again for writing both Instructables, Jules.Cheers!

    Modify a cheap LDC Condenser microphone

    Hi, Jules,Great tutorial! I built this and your M-S Alice microphone, and added the HF EQ modification in Ricardo Lee's document to both since I'm using these for field recording rather than for voice or instrument. They're both solid performers.My BM-800 came with a 10mm capsule and a saddle that would've been tough to modify for the TSB-2555B capsule, so I made a saddle and post out of aluminum for my mic. A convenient solution for me, but not for others who might run into an unsuitable donor saddle.Since not every DIYer has machine tools, I also designed one that can be 3D printed. It's up on Thingiverse for folks who have a 3D printer, and on Shapeways for those who don't.http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2036552https://www.shapeways.com/product/PEWRFKNHA/alice-...I attached the caps...
