Here's a video in which I mod the MXL 990 with a new Capsule ! (RK47 from microphone-parts.com)
Tell me what you think
To start, I’ve created an Instructable, to upgrade an MXL 990 condenser mic with a ribbon element from http://www.diyribbonmic.com/parts
I created some 3D printed parts to hold the ribbon element and transformer.
But I think one of the key things is I also created a 3D printed ribbon alignment jig. It makes it really easy to replace and re-ribbon the element.
Just curious if anyone here has experience with this particular modified microphone

Very skeptical that I can get a $350 microphone that performs like a Neumann U87 Ai costing 10 times as much...but there are folks on other forums raving about it.
Can anybody plese help?
its good to be in this forums lots of knowledgeable sh*t
To my problem, i bought a MXl 990 and a Blue icicle
This is how its setup
Mxl 990 condenser mic > XLR cable > Blue icicle > USb wire > Pc ( windows 7 )
I checked everywhere and it says icicle is a plug and play device, so why am i having problem ?
The audio recorded is way too low
