Replacement of Church Audo CAFS
« on: November 28, 2023, 05:41:43 AM »
I have a set of Chruch Audio CAFS mics which have been loved for many years, but I think it has finally reached the end of it's useful life, and the left mic is having trouble picking up signal.  I notice they are not for sale anymore on the Church Audio site, any idea where I can get a replacement set or any other new mics in the market that are similar to the CAFS?  Thank you.

Assuming you want to stay small, DPA 4060/4061/4063 would be an option, although more expensive. Countryman B3 is another.

I would recommend some Sennheiser ME104 mics ..
currently my go to mics .. those are very small and have removable caps.

Not as small like the CA CAFS but I a little bit smaller than those DPA mics.
Also the build quality is much stronger than the CA mics.

The ME104 are cardioids but you can swith caps to ME102 (omni) or to ME105 (supercardioid)
I have a pair for sale if this hits your interest.

Agree.  I have the Sennheiser as well.
Please DO NOT mail me with tech questions.  I will try to answer in the forums when I get a chance.  Thanks.

I have a set of Marcsounds mics in the yard sale. They are omni but if that’s ok you won’t find better for cheaper that’s for sure.
