Yes, we use the same panasonic capsules that Earthworks use in their
microphones. The difference between ours and the Behringer mics, or
just straight out of the box is quite substantial. We modify the
capsule so that the FET is rebiased, allowing for a balanced signal,
and a drastic increase in SPL limit from the Behringer. The mics are
now phantom powered, which is not an easy circuit to build on a board
the size of your thumbnail, and the noise is nowhere near as bad as
the Behringer mic. We have put alot of work into these mics, and I
believe they are one of the best bargains out there right now. Visit
www.stapesaudio.com, or read the review in issue #30 of Tape Op for
some more info.
