The pictures on Vintage King look like the capsule is threaded and removable, but there's a cap cover that needs to be removed. Wish I didnt open this thread. :facepalm:

0.9 in diamater or 22.86 mm diameter . A fairly big pencil style mic . Will probably need to use a fairly stiff lyre if using Rycote INV's . i didn't check the weight .

If they do wind up manufacturing a hyper and an omni SDC version I wonder if the "protective cap" that is protecting the capsule will be vented differently for each option?  Will they just sell capsules without the bodies?

Thats what Im wondering. That and will ck1's,2's,3's fit on these threads, and will these caps fit on actives with a60's or 460's/480's? It would be great to have a new similiar product to something I love, with actual support if we need something. Another rabbit whole Im foreseeing I'll be diving into.

I hope this is a misprint I just found. Glad I didnt pull the trigger if it isnt.
The CC8 features Austrian Audio’s OCC7 condenser capsule, which has been inspired by the Avantone CK1. According to the Vienna-based brand, the newly developed capsule “delivers all the benefits of that classic design updated to meet the demands of today.”

Pretty sure the guys from AKG would have modeled it after the AKG CK1. If that was from a third party review the writer probably doesn't know what the heck they are talking about.

Its definitely modeled after the AKG's . 3rd party review has no idea what they're talking about.

If these have the AKG sound and fit on actives, I'll likely buy their hypers.

I would think the mesh screened cap would be the same for all, but the actual capsule would have cuts based on the ck2, ck3, etc.

Here's a short video from their page - I missed it initially:

In that video there's a screw to hold the mesh cap cover and another one to hold the actual capsule (which looks exactly like the housing of the CK1 cap) onto the preamp. DOesn't show any threads at all.

It's a possibility - and I'm purely speculating here - that the screw that holds the capsule cover in place also provides the ground for the circuit. Other mics have the ground to the body at the capsule.

This is pretty close to the price of an actual AKG that supposedly sounds like the CK1 - the C451B. No modularity, though.

Just got the email that these are fixed cards, with no option of switching. They have no plan of making any other polar pattern versions either.

That's unfortunate. These could have been killer at this price point for a modular option. I'm sure they will be a great cardioid though - I can't wait to hear them.
