Question about AKG C451B Professional Microphone
Hi Everybody, Got given this AKG C451B mic for free - it works fine but the top housing that is on the mic seems to have come loose and as you move the mic around the top housing moves against the screws and this noise can be picked up on the headphones and the recording. Anybody else encounter this? Is there a quick fix? Just had another look at the mic head and it seems the screw holes have become bigger due to wear!! Any suggestions on what i can do? Thanks in advance.
Aahhh the joys of second hand gear. wow, the holes have been enlarged... may be that the original screws are not fitted to it also. OR less likely, mic may have become this way from years of being pulled in and out of a bag, with loose screws the whole time. It will rattle if the screws are a loose fit, can only suggest to you at this point try and get some new screws for it. or short on that (more drastic measure) to resecure the head of the mic with a small dap of clear nail varnish about each screw head. the varnish will hold well enough, but may present an issue getting the mic apart again, this depending entirley on how much of the stuff you have applied. Less is better :). other than that, there is not really a fix. Hope this advice helps you.
