another idea is to find a better low z element, like one from a sm57 or 58. and add a volume pot as well. wonder if a digi delay with low-z would fatten the sound up some?

the shell is typical pot metal, the chrome is nice. it came with a screw on mount for a mic stand which the mic just sits in also. the cable i got with it was junk, an xlr to 1/4" jack which had screws missing, but for what i paid i can live with that. still, a mod to high-z would nicely eliminat the xlr all together.

From where I sit there's three questions:
Do you see yourself using the Torpedo ‘as is’?
Do you need something ‘better’ than the SM57 (or your other vocal mics) to go direct into the PA?
Do you enjoy ‘fiddling’ with mic internals and feel an overwhelming urge to create a Frankenmic based on the Torpedo shell with a hot element and a VC?

If ‘no’ to all three, sell it as is!

i'm considering a couple of different options for this mic. one is to just sell it. another is to put s more responsive low-z element in it so it will still serve for plugging into a p.a. when i don't feel like lugging and amp to a jam or to sit in with someone. thirdly, i'm thinking why not get a good crystal or cm element and totally rework this shell into a killer mic for tube amp? in fact i think i've got a shure ceramic element around here someplace.

the mic has an xlr connector now so it would have to go and a screw-on or something else to replace that. i'd also put a volume pot in it. but this is all time and money i may not want to spend.

i currently have a few really great harp mics, a 707a with 99b86 element, a ruskin custom with a great crystal element, and a greg heumann-modded e-v military mic with a dynamic element inside that puts out a lot of good stuff. i also have a shure 545s and several vocal mics plus an sm57, which some of these plug into a p.a. and put out very well indeed for harp.

i am also considering doing a totally unique frankenstein mic out of an aluminum shell that was not intended as a shell at all but is tooled for both a connector and a volume pot. a hot element in it wnd i think i'd have a winner mic that people would just want to drool over.

back to topic, if you had a situation like this, what would you do with a Torpedo mic? and no i don't really need a paper weight!

thanks guys.
