  • Rebranded Sony ECM22

    Was given a Radio Shack 33-1080 back electret cardioid by a lady who was throwing it out. A little research indicates it's a rebranded Sony ECM22 which I believe Andy said were pretty decent mics. I've never used one of these before, can it operate on phantom like a condenser? Harvey Gerst over at HRF recommends using a 12 volt cigarrete lighter battery in place of the 9 volt AA. Any opinions on that ?

    The 23 is a very nice mic. Not sure about a 22, nor if RS ever really bought from Sony.

      I was basing that statement of rebranding from info on HRF. Don't know for a fact that it's true or a myth that refuses to die.
