Anyone know someone reliable in the US who can repair and re-wire Church and AT mics for reasonable cost?

I like my CA-14s in particular, but they are awfully fragile.  One channel always goes out or becomes intermittent.  Any suggestions?

If your Audio-Technica microphones are unmodified, I can highly recommend their service, at least here in the U.S.--they're very quick, efficient, accurate and (relatively) inexpensive.

It's really the Church mics I'd like to get repaired, especially without having to send them back to Canada.  Aren't there independent guys out there who are willing to do a simple re-wire?

I've got quite a few mics, including Church Audio versions.
The problem with re-wiring is a lot of his stuff is sealed in epoxy (or some kind of hot melt glue?).Have to remove old stuff, rewire, and I guess, re seal them (with another kind of glue).
Nothing technical or difficult at all.  Just time consuming and of course, need to ship somewhere.Also, if someone fixes them for you, they might break again.
Good luck anyway,  Richard

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

This, more than anything, is why I finally switched to AT853s. CA-14s sound great, but the wiring is fragile as hell.
