Having cloned a U87 and recently a KM84, I'm taking the plunge. Ordered up everything to build an AKG C12 or it's variant, the Telefunken ELA M 251 and it's power supply. Sprung for the Heiserman HK12 capsule too. https://heisermanaudio.com/products/hk12-capsule. I'll be building up both circuits, the C12 being Matador's boards https://store.studio939.com/product/c12 ... ne-pcb-set and ELA M 251 being Poctop's boards http://www.vintagemicrophonepcbkit.com/D-251.html This could actually turn into 2 projects...or not. Alcatron Body kit with power supply and shock mount. (gets gutted, save most of the hardware), https://store.studio939.com/product/alc ... microphone Went for the better gotham cable, too. https://store.studio939.com/product/gotham-gac-7-cable There was an ELA M 251 on ebay for 25,000.00 so the way I see it, I'm saving 24,000.00 dollars. This is the last project for a while...but I am ready for the challenge, and here is the best place to share the sickness...err, enthusiasm. :) Will use it for recording, and broadcasting.

I'll be watching this thread for updates! Mic builds are really fun and tempting, but they're the least practical for me. So I will enjoy this vicariously. :mrgreen:
