MG N-Box signup thread
« on: March 02, 2010, 12:47:55 PM »
After speaking to JD, we've decided that it may help to get this done if it was known how many people may be interested in buying one of these, if it existed yet. If the builder/s involved knew how many of us want one of these then maybe it would provide a little incentive to create one.

If you would be interested in buying a N-box for Microtech Gefell capsules please post your interest here in this thread.

Count me in as #1

Thanks!

I'd want one for sure, probably would get two of them just to run two different pairs of caps.  >:D

I know JD has talk about this for a while. if anyone has the ability JD can do this... If it can be built he will, if it can't he won't waste his time... or let it flounder like some other well known projects.. 

Be optimistic...

Well, I have Gefells and love active setups, so I'll at least sign onto the thread.

That said, I'm probably more in the 10-25% chance I'd get one.  It'd depend on the price, my taping activity when it rolls around, and my overall level of sluttiness.

Having already sold the m20 caps (which would turn out to be a major mistake if this box happens), I'll be still holding onto my Milab vm44-links, and I'm not sure the level of taping I'm doing these days justifies spending a lot more to get active-style hypers.

Still, beyond the current MG user base, I'd imagine that a active/n-box type rig for gefells would make them much more popular around here.

From what i understand, the current N-box can be used to run the MG caps with a custom active cable
that has to be built from scratch (no parts to buy like the schoeps one) everything has to be made.
Shit....if this puppy ever gets made i'll buy a set of actives and some MG caps. Whats stopped me before
from running these is no actives for the MG's.

An Nbox will be a sought after piece of gear if you have the option of running schoeps, MG and AKG
caps just by changing to a different set of active cables for each brand of mic caps.

Thanks Dave for pointing me to this thread...Sign me up!

I've even expressed interest in helping out with a monetary investment. I don't know just how much is involved with the development of one of these but I wouldn't mind plunking down a few Benjamin's to get this going  ;D

From what i understand, the current N-box can be used to run the MG caps with a custom active cable
that has to be built from scratch (no parts to buy like the schoeps one) everything has to be made.

That's what Bill and I had talked about, If the voltages were the same as the schoeps, it would mostly be a matter of making custom cabling and plug ends. If they were different then some re-designing would be required.

From what I can vaguely recall, Bill had said that a three conductor wire would be needed for each cap and a small circuit would be needed at the cap to, I think, compensate for the capacitance of the added wire? Don't remember the exact details as this was some time ago.

Getting the custom plug made should not be a problem, I deal with machine shops on a regular basis. The design I have in my head right now would involve having about 6 or 7 small parts machined and a small circuit of some sort. The first couple of prototypes would be a little costly, but once the design is hammered out and the CNC code is written, the price of the parts would be considerable less, especially if the could be made in batches of say 25 or 50 at a time.

I gave allot of thought about the plug design tonight and am pretty sure I know how to go about everything. The only thing I am not real sure of is how much room would be needed for the circuitry.

I'll make some rough sketches up when I have some free time. When/if I am confident that someone with the know how is committed to designing the electronics, I will have the sketches drawn up on auto-cad at work and send them out for pricing quotes.

I seem to remember someone posting a few years back - Oleg I think, that it was possible to use MBHO capsules on Gefell bodies.  Think they are both 21mm, similar threads and single connecting pin.  I always wanted to try it but could never convince the only taper I know with MG200's to let me test it.  Anyhow if this is true I wonder if it would be possible to use the MBHO colettes as a vehicle to send signal to this proposed MG box.

I tried this with Otheronek's MBHO bodies and my gefell caps, the threads are close but not close enough. Forcing the two together would probably result in threads being damaged.

As with Todd, it would depend on price.  Also, I have been so accustomed to running full bodies for so long that I don't know what the actual benefit would be to run actives.  Finally, I would not want anything that would cause the cable to be hard-wired to the capsule.  If I can remove the capsules, fine, but hard-wiring is a deal breaker for me.

The capsules would screw on just like on a normal microphone body and would be removable. The main advantage would be a reduction in overall size and allow you to use your gefell's in less than open taping situations, at least as far as I understand it.  ;)

Any new developments?


I received Myco's JK Lab box last week, Haven't really had the time to play with it yet. I did take the cover off on the inside, and I must say, I am amazed at how little circuitry is in that box. Looks to be a small shrunk-wrapped battery of some sorts, and just a dozen or so caps and resistors. Most of the circuit looks to be for the stepped pot that is a variable HPF. Almost looks too simple.

My plans for this box are as follows.

First I want to do a blind comparison of this box verses the gefell bodies and see how there compare.
second, I want to try make some frequency graphs of the comps and see how they compare.
Then, I will attempt to reverse engineer the circuit, and take it to someone with the know-how to suggest improvements.


FYI, the JK Labs box is as follows:

--one channel in via 4 pin plug(should be able to just double everything for two channels)
--1/4" TRS out (wired to two XLR's)
--has a 3.5 mini out
--has no on/off switch (inside the unit it says to remove the cap when not in use)
--has no gain
--has a 6 position rotary switch for 6 different base roll-offs (I am assuming one is unity)
--runs on one 9V and is marked as having a 350 hour battery life!!!!
--has a current draw of 1.5 mah
--the box measures 1 1/4" X 2 3/8" X 4 3/8" (there is a lot of unused space inside, so I'm guessing a two channel unit would be somewhere around 50% larger)
--there looks to be a battery pack of some sort permanently wired inside. I kind of remember Bill telling me that his R-boxes had something like twelve watch batteries in series to make a polarization voltage??? for the caps, and that there was almost no current involved so the batteries would literally last for many years, I'm guessing that is the case here as well)

I have one of the original two RBoxes Bill built.  That is the schematic used for the NBox.  The RBox was an evolution of a box built for Nak 700's.  Between Bill and Nick there is little doubt in my mind that a kick ass box will be built.  As long as there is enough interest to justify the development this will happen. 

Nick just lent me an NBox to travel with it to record Clapton Winwood in Europe.  Slick design.

Sounds like a good idea to me, something like the lightweight, seemingly indestructible plastic that "cigar caddies" are made of would make a great MG-J(amie)box...  ;)

just a FYI for those looking to build one of these boxes.

I used to own a JK Labs ECMS-23 for the MGs and I remember a conversation Jon and I had with regards to the cables/caps.
at some point in production of the caps, MG changed the length of the center pin on the caps that plugs into the bodies. I do not remember what serial # range the change occurred at but you need to be careful if you have m20, m21, etc to make sure the pin is the same length (or the active cable has play in the connection to accommodate slightly different length pins).
what Jon told me was pretty much of your caps are relatively close to each other serial # wise you should be fine interchanging the caps on the active cables but if there was a wide difference in serial #s to closely compare the caps to see if 1 pin stuck out further than the other.

if I remember correctly the difference in length was maybe 1mm or so but I can not vouch exactly for that #...

..I'm probably more in the 10-25% chance I'd get one.  It'd depend on the price, my taping activity when it rolls around, and my overall level of sluttiness.

just a FYI for those looking to build one of these boxes.

I used to own a JK Labs ECMS-23 for the MGs and I remember a conversation Jon and I had with regards to the cables/caps.
at some point in production of the caps, MG changed the length of the center pin on the caps that plugs into the bodies. I do not remember what serial # range the change occurred at but you need to be careful if you have m20, m21, etc to make sure the pin is the same length (or the active cable has play in the connection to accommodate slightly different length pins).
what Jon told me was pretty much of your caps are relatively close to each other serial # wise you should be fine interchanging the caps on the active cables but if there was a wide difference in serial #s to closely compare the caps to see if 1 pin stuck out further than the other.

if I remember correctly the difference in length was maybe 1mm or so but I can not vouch exactly for that #...

Good to know, thanks for posting.

I was just looking at some gold plated spring contacts that had a 2 1/2 mm range, so it shouldn't be a problem if they are set so that they cover both pin lengths.

I've always liked the look of real wood.

Seriously, if it is adaptable to the MBHOs, I'm in.

We only had a few people who were definite in wanting these and to have the electronics set up and have the boxes machined it would have been too cost prohibitive.

I wonder what "cost effective" works out to for about 20 boxes and spare parts for another 15 or so (in case some stuff breaks later and they have to be serviced).

I guess the original electrical engineer, Bill, is not interested as he is too busy these days. We only had about 12 "definites" which may turn into only 6-9 actual sales. We would probably have to foot the bill to have another electrical engineer do the schematics, so this could be too expensive unless we had more people commit and maybe lay out some $$ up front. We just didn't see this as being a viable project in the current economic situation.

I'd pick up MG caps if there was a box, but I'm not going back to bodies now that I have >75% of that sound in a remote cap already anyway. Correct, it's not Gefell, but it works and that's the trade off.

But if there was a box, I could have cake and eat it too...  :)

I think the cost effectiveness is also driven by spare boxes to sell over the 18-24months after the initial distribution, and spare parts. If someone had the capital up front, that would be an option to allow for service later, and extra parts made to satisfy fabrication scale realities.

"This is a common practice we have on the bus; debating facts that we could easily find through printed material. It's like, how far is it today? I think it's four hours, and someone else comes in at 11 hours, and well, then we'll... just... talk about it..." - Jeb Puryear
