I get around to things so long overdue I send my mic to Sennheiser for a service. Fixed price including delivery and tax, 390.

Those Sennheiser brothers, Helmut and Chinstrap did the following.

Replaced capsule, replaced body, reworked grill, cleaned xlr. In effect I have the same "broom" but with a new handle and brush. Awesome value!

Was there something about the mic's performance that caused you to have it serviced, or is that something that should be done every (how many) years?

Not been touched for around 10 years, that was reason enough to sent to the Doctor,

"Cough!"

Pretty much a complete rebuild for 15% of the price of a new one? Not bad at all.

You got a brand new capsule, housing, grill and service for 390?! Wow! Was that through High Wycombe? I think they missed a 1 off the price

Yes it was, so genuinely genuine! I read the details on the invoice and reached for my debit card having already paid the "fixed price" service fee. Balance due - Nil. Gawd bless 'em
