I don't have any pics. I probably should have taken before and after shots but it was a "spur of the moment decision".
I'll take some after-the-fact pics this weekend and post them.
So i tried #1, but i haven't had time to test it out yet. I wanted to let people know that 1. you must be patient because its going to take a while. 2. Wear goggles so when you are cutting the wire little pieces aren't going to fly in your eyes. 3. I tried to clean it up as much as I could but now there are some little pieces of wire hanging off the edges of the grill. and 4. if you make a few cuts in the soft middle mesh to the point where you can grab it, you can pull it off the microphone pretty cleanly without leaving any excess material.
Ok thats all i have for now, i'm eager to test it.
