DM-304 cartridge rplacement

Postby mruckus » Sun Mar 04, 2018 1:03 pm

Hey modders! I have an old DM-304 that sounds terrible, I was wondering about the possibility of putting the guts from say a SM7B or RE20 in, would that work (the cartridge is 1 3/8" across)? I wonder about the design of the case and the extra porting, where the mic I have is only open at the basket grill about 1.25" across and about 3/4" deep with a solid aluminum case. How might the case affect the sound? And has AA ever supplied the guts from their DM20 separately for such a project? Thanks!
