    Hello, I'm new here and I don't know how much interest for this kind of stuff is there, but anyway: I did some comparisons between different combinations of AKG bodies and capsules; the file names are more or less self explaining.

    460JW is Jim Williams moded 460B body, 460Stock is the stock body, and which capsule is attached you cen derive from the file name.

    These are two different takes on a 7 string flamenco guitar, so one gets a pretty nice range of frequencies. There was also some buzz in the guitar which I purposedly left to see how the mics react.
    All tunes normalized and apart from iZotope6 dithering on mixdown 96/24 mono to 44,1/16 stereo no further processing.

    Comments very welcome!

    Hello,
    This is moded by Gordan Basa (Canada) who had his work confirmed by Jim Williams. He's (or was) offering this mod for C460B.

    Here's a little guitar recording I made with Jim Williams moded 460B and CK1 capsules (recorded straight to Busman moded DR680) and no processing apart from a pinch of Izotope 6 reverb and dithering while mixdown down to 44.1/16...
