Re: Shure 183 problem

Your assessment of the Shure 183 pops in my DIY Telinga dish was correct, t=
hey have returned to normal condition after drying out. I thought I will p=
ass along what I think contributed to the condition.
I had never had the problem in the past so I made an effort to recall what =
is new in the handling of the dish. I had recently made a plate to store t=
he dish on and to protect the mic elements from contact during travel. The=
plate is a 1/4 inch thick circular piece of plywood which has an exercise =
mat glued to it. The mat has a smooth surface and that makes a pretty unif=
orm seal to the rim of the dish. I keep the dish in the rear of the van fo=
r several days at a time without use. I think the dish may be acting like a=
terrarium, although I have not seen any condensation on the inside.
I like the protection that the plate offers so I am going to cut a few slot=
s in the foam and see if that works better. To keep the dish on the plate =
I used some scrap from the foam and made four curved pads which I glued to =
the mat just outside the rim of the dish. Very light weight, retains the d=
ish shape and protects the mic's from accidental impact. Just needs a bit o=
f seed so I can grow something other than frustration early in the morning =
when I try to use the dish.
