No, you don't. This is another classic misconception about these mics. I've opened mine several times, without problem.

I like to look inside all my equipment and my Sankens are out of warranty anyway. They do sound stellar, so there is no technical need to open them up, but I like to study what's in there.

I'm very impressed by Sanken products.

The C0-100K is awfully good as in the CU-44x. That entire 2 capsule, one for bass and one for the rest is fascinating.

Very lo fi comment coming:

It sounds intimate and expensive.

Those two mics on acoustic guitar and vox alone. Very special.

It's a very different sonic direction. Yes clean.... But there is a footprint there that I really like. I don't own either one but they are on the list.

There are some snic characteristics that are so very pleasing in an honest way that just makes me smile.

I could put both of these mics in front of James Taylor for vox and gtr and maybe add a AEA44 for thump on guitar.

Very nice picrophones.

Thanks, just wanted to confirm what I was hearing. In the process of trying to return the mic now.

Those are very different mics. The Soyuz is warmer, has more "sound", is rounder and softer sounding.

Just recorded a nice female singer today with the Sanken, great mids all around, superb air yet I'm not using any de-esser. it's rare, because I usually Soothe and De esse a lot. Preamp was LA-610MKII, I'm sure something Nevesque would be cool too.

clean but real and vivid, I just dirty-ed up the take a bit but I can always step back and take away plugins if needed.
