MXL 770 quiet and loud hissing

Hi!
My MXL 770 is very low volume and there is a noticeable hiss.
I haven't used it in a while and the last time it was on a different computer and it worked fine.
I use a Neewer 48V 1-channel phantom power supply.
I am not very experienced in troubleshooting this kinda stuff so if anyone could help me thatd be great!
I put an audio clip so you can see what I mean.(gotta crank the volume)
 

Advice for Zoom call music lesson setup

We give music lessons via Zoom calls and achieve good quality sound by using a mixer as the "microphone" in Zoom.
One of our students wants to have the same setup, however, I've hit a snag in my mind for what to tell him. The three components are microphone, guitar, and backing track. All three go into the mixer, and then we USB out from the mixer to the computer and use that as the microphone in the Zoom settings. Simple.

Marco made me think about mic mods

I've been watching with (originally) sum scepticism on the mic mods but I just watched and listened to the MXL Marco swapped the capsule in, and have started to think a bit. The 47 diaphragm the Chinese are making pops up quite often, and in every case - it seems to get positive comment. Going to the Neumann YouTube videos, I've been looking at how they're made and come to the conclusion that maybe, it doesn't sound good because it's Neumann, or AKG or whoever, but simply because the design is good at being nice to listen to?

More DN27A's in for Modifications...

6 Klark Tecknik DN27A in for work. Its amazing to me the changes over the years. 2 units have input transformers and output transformers. The two will transformers will get a electrolytic cap change and general inspection. Of the four remaining, the most similar two will get Jensen input and output transformers, cap change and inspection. One unit had permanent power cord modification, that is going to get changed back to the original style power connector.
