When I said "we", I was referring to John/BXO and I (as in replying to
his message). John, Otis, and someone else, forget now who it was...
Steve/K5LTK, perhaps, ordered some D-104 cartridges. In fact, I think
they were the JT-30 replacement crystal cartridges, which have a very
similar sound to them, if not a bit 'richer'.
With the right amount of EQ, any microphone can be made to sound -at
least- acceptable on the air.
John, in particular, came up with an RC network, incorporating some
inverse feed-back on a 12AX7 mic preamp that flattens out the audio
response on most any crystal element mic (like a D-104 or JT-30, etc...)
