Malfunction of repaired COS-11

Recommended Posts

Hi Group,

we recently sent a COS-11 for repair to Kortwich. Since the mic was damaged right below the capsule,

their trick is to fix it with DPA cable. They said they had great results with that. Today we got it back

and obviously it is still broken. Can you maybe tell me from the attached sound file, what the problem might

be?

Thanks in advance

Veit

He was. The reason why they are the only people who can work on them is because Sanken sent them a machine that can’t open the capsules and they are the only people that have one. So despite who is working there, the machine is what allows for the repair.

Too risky to use the repaired ones, I have mine repaired once, they replaced the old cable to a Shure mic cable. In general, it sounds fine... but later on, it goes on and on with lots of problems, little noise like the cable with he capsule, or even RF antennas etc. 

best to get a new one or even a used one. Don’t repair it.

Yes that was right until 2017.

We have customers from U.K, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Bulgaria etc. since 2017.

 

We have Facebook & Instagram pages where you can see many samples of capsule repairing and cable renewing.

A little advice to all cos11 users:

 

When you're buying a new cos11, pay little much and buy 3mt. cable length option. (it will be approx. 3.25mt)

Cut the cable to 2 equal pieces (1.62mt. each) before using it and resolder the connector.

You can keep second part cable for renewing in future (if you want to replace old sticky cable with original one)

 

Cheers
