Shapeways 3D printed mic clip questions?
« on: September 29, 2016, 03:29:58 PM »
I see that there is a clip for the AKG 480 DIN already available.  Does anyone know if it will fit the AKG 460?  I want one, but not sure if it will fit. 

AKG 480 DIN:  http://www.shapeways.com/product/UQ7BFXT2S/dina-akg480?optionId=57490953

Thanks

The 480 and the 460 are the same diameter 21mm.

Thanks, thats what I thought.  Wasn't sure if the length difference would screw with the inter-cap distance.  Shouldn't matter as I have never measured anything with my mic bars anyways.  Gracias

Anyone know if there is one that might work with Busman BSC1?

I just looked at all of the SRS mounts, and he doesn't have one for the BSC1's, just the Busman BST54. Do you know what mm diameter the BSC1's are? If it's an odd number other than 19-21mm, just send Scott[SRS] an email and tell him what you want! He's more than accommodating! I just got my 2nd Combo Mount from him[DINa/NOS] and it's badass ;D Makes running the two diff configs so much smaller, compact and lightweight!

I decided I'm going to send the mics in to be measured.  Sounds like I'll be without the mics for 2-3 weeks which I'm ok with after I tape a couple shows this week.

I'm 99% sure that Busman BSC1's are 22mm.

There are 2 different sized BSC1 if I'm not mistaken.

The very first ones had the 2 switches on them (a pad and bass roll off) which the subsequent ones did not.

A friend had the early model with the switches and I have the model without and I'm pretty sure the earlier version was slightly bigger.

As I say, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's the case.

Not sure how much of an issue that could be, just wanted to throw it out there in case it may matter...

You could always go to your local Harbor Freight[I got mine locally for $7] or hardware store and get some dirt cheap digital Calipers, and then you wouldn't have to send your mics away ;) I use my digital calipers far more than I ever thought that I would, so the $7 I spent on mine was WELL worth it! Then you wouldn't be WITHOUT your mics for weeks AND you'd have some very useful digital calipers ;D

That said, Scott[SRS] has always been very accommodating and quick with me, and I'm sure you'd have your mics back quickly if you did send them away to him ;)

Hmm, I didn't get mine that long ago and I have the model with the 2 switches.  When did the new model come out?

I would not say you are mistaken, but you might have the only BSC1 set with one switch. The Busman website still shows the 22mm bodies with 2 switches. I have mine from the original run of mics, numbered  19 and 20, and they look exactly like the pictures on the Busman website. I'd like to see a photo of the mics that are larger with only one switch, as I have not seen the BSC 1's like that before. The BSC1's currently pictured on the Busman website are 22mm, exactly like my original first run set.

Harmon712: I got my set in October of 2010 and they do not have any switches on the bodies at all.



Dallman: Sorry if I was a bit confusing. My BSC1 set does not have any switches on them at all. What I meant was that my friend's pair (who purchased his about a year before I got mine) had the switches on them and they seemed to be slightly larger than my set that doesn't have the switches.

Unfortunately I never physically compared them side by side before he moved out of state. When I got mine I remember thinking that they seemed a bit smaller than his which I had borrowed several times before.

Checking back at the old email I ordered mine December 2014 and I have the switches on my mics.

Maybe Chris went back to the original body style at some point.

I sent him an e-mail asking about the body change and if anything else was different between the 2 sets of mics and he responded on Oct. 15, 2010:

"I changed the mics as no one including me ever used the -10db pad or bass roll off. They  only made more noise in the signal path.
Other than that the components are all the same inside and the sound is the same.  It’s just revision 2 of the mics."

Maybe he went back to the bodies with the switches on them as revision 3?

Either way I still believe that the bodies with the switches are slightly larger than those without...
