Condenser Mic Repair by Fixit UAE.
Problems that then occur are reduced treble and increased noise or “bubbling” from the microphone, especially when speaking or singing closely into the microphone. This is caused by surface conduction at the diaphragm, resulting in leakage currents. It is also possible for a dirty capsule to cause random ticks (also known as popcorn noise). It is recommended to clean the capsules in these cases.
The capsule itself is very fragile, the membrane has a thickness of 3-6 micrometers, while the vaporized gold layer is barely more than one molecule thick! Cleaning the membrane with a cotton swab almost guarantees the destruction of the capsule. Moreover, there is a risk that the gold layer will be ground away during such a process. Here is an example of a microphone capsule that is ‘cleaned’ by an inexperienced person.
The membrane has lost most of its gold. It can be seen that the vaporized gold has flaked off and is then literally “wiped off” the membrane. The only way to get the microphone back in order was to replace the microphone capsule.
