What did you actually do?  Was there lint building up on the diaphragm?

 

Cheers,

You can see the dirt buildup on the assembled capsule, then it is cleaned in the disassembled picture.

 

Microphones are like camera lenses; best kept clean. 

 

My family counts on me, I am not going to let them down. No chance.

 

Pilots don't fake it till they make it, they fake it until they crash and burn. 

 

Please PM me for details. Glad to help.

The super-fine gold wire contact seems to be missing.

Underside of the gold donut/contact side down in third picture. I promise they are there, just can't see em. I didn't touch them. I occasionally use MG zero residue contact cleaner for these contacts.

 

It was my pleasure meeting you in Vegas at Firefly.

Good meeting you, too.

Regarding the gold wire, I'm referring to the bent gold wire that goes through the nylon shroud to the diaphragm assembly (unless this is a design newer than I'm familiar with to).

But of course! 

 

It's in the white ceramic dish on the right, just the tip is showing. The  tiny gold spring is also in this dish. 

 

@John Blankenship I forgot to mention this tiny gold wire. It's literally a little semi-bent L gold metal wire.
