Preventive Maintenance

The "Capsule", is one of the most important, and expensive, components in a microphone. If a capsule is left contaminated for many years, then corrosion will "Breakdown" the gold sputtering, or other material, on the diaphragm. This will shorten the life expectancy, of the capsule, by many years.

Therefore, especially in a busy studio environment, it is recommended that microphone capsule's are checked, and cleaned if required, at least every 2 years (Depending upon use). Thus, not allowing any harmful "Contamination", to build up on the diaphragm.

Cleaning capsules is a very delicate and skilled procedure. If not carried out correctly, utilizing the correct materials, then a capsule can be irreparably damaged very easily and quickly !
