Here's a schematic that displays the assembly of your mics. You should only need a hex tool, jewelers screwdriver, and some patience.

I have the same prob with mine. I opened it and found that a little plastic thingy was loose UNDER the diaphram! I can't see any way, short of replacing the capsule, of fixing it. The mic works, sort of. It depends on the position you hold it. Not reliably!

I'm bummed.

Odds are the problem is the foam that usually surrounds the capsules in these mics. eventually it dries out and decays. you can replace it yourself (see the previous message concerning disassembly) with open-cell foam, or you can have an electro voice service repair center do it. i can't recommend one in oz; in the US, location sound in north hollywood does it, relatively inexpensively (~$50).

I know that the m-audio nova is a studio recording microphone , but i would like to know why it is not recommended for stage use ?

I would guess that the mic is a condensor type. These mics are much more sensitive to transients, and they tend to pick up a lot of ambient sound around them. In contrast, dynamic mics, such as the Shure SM 58 have become the standard live mic because their pickup pattern and response tend to be concentrated close to the singer, thus rejecting the ambient noise that condensors pick up. The live sound environment is very different acoustically than the controlled studio environment, and therefore, mics are chosen to accommodate the different acoustics.

I recently heard that the EV-757 was the best mic ever made for vocals. What compares to it or even surpasses it in the new line of EV mics? Also, are the new ones American made like the old ones?

Don't know if I'd go that far. Microphones (like other gear) has specific design characteristics. The EV757 is a great mic and is best suited for female vocals (or Art Garfunkle). I paid $190 in the early 90's ($390 retail). I like dynamic mics for their ruggedness and no ned for phantom power. A condenser mic like a Neumann U87 cost $3,000 but faithfully reproduces. "Best" can only be used in conjunctioon with "for a particular purpose"
