Can not remove capsule and lever stuck


I had a similar problem, and it was down to high pressure remaining in the machine preventing the lever from releasing. You can test this by pressing the capsule in the machine (which will be much more solid than normal).
To fix, all you need to do is make a hole in the stuck capsule. I did this by drilling a small hole in the side of the capsule.
That releases the pressure (and a little spurt of coffee!), and the lever will release.

Hi, I'm trying to fit the polar pattern converter to my C1000S mic. I've removed the wire mesh part to reveal the shock mount and capsule but there seems to be a black plastic bit of a different shape...


Alan, the C1000s comes with 2 filters, and it sounds like one of them is already on the capsule. Yes you can remove the one already on. I find by gently twisting and pulling it comes off easily. The capsule is rubber mounted so it can take a little bit of pressure.

What does the polarity + - switch do on Roland PD7 & KD7 pads do? also is it possible to purchase replacement internal triggers for these & how do the thin plastic actual trigger parts work...


The polarity switch selects whether the pressure causes a positive or negative electrical spike. This can affect whether your drum MODULE fires on the hit or when the hit is lifted.

Thin plastic triggers are an electret plastic and have piezoelectric properties.when their shape is changed by pressure, etc.

MXL 990 has really low output


These are really cheap mics! I have two dozen of them because what I do requires the mic to be expendable. The capsule is pretty fragile and just a little drop or hit to the mic can drastically alter the frequency response and output level. If you record with it and it has a hollow sound I would bet this is what happened. If you can generate white or pink noise out of your system, then record it. Just hold the mic in front of the speaker. Play it back and compare the tone of the recording to what you just heard. Hollow? There you are!
