The starting point from which the quality of your recordings begins, therefore it is essential to employ the very best microphone repairs specialists, and that is exactly what we have. Large diaphragm microphone capsules are particularly susceptible to build up of dust and debris which sticks to the residue of breath over time, leading to many common problems familiar to owners of this type of microphone, from loss of frequency response right through to cutting out and complete loss of signal.
Consequently, our specialist capsule cleaning service is a must for maintaining your treasured microphone’s performance at peak level. Utilising de-ionsed water to prevent any residue after evaporation, the capsule is very carefully returned to like-new condition. Additionally, we have experience of many other common and less common microphone faults across many different makes and models: Neumann, AKG, Schoeps, Lomo, EV, Coles, Sanken and more.
