Transound capsules are readily available. Some are a real step up in performance but not as small.

The Transound elements look promising Transsound Electrets . Do you have experience with them? Which ones are preferred and which to avoid? The 12 mm capsules seem to have some shaping to the response.

TS-60 looks awfully a lot like the old Panasonic WM-60 or WM-61 series.
listen! Can you hear that ...

That TSB-165 looks cool...after reading how the small ones are noisy, I wished I could find larger ones...and it looks like it has three separate terminals, so surgery required to incorporate a source follower...the source appears to be separate from the ground.

People still put in a 2SK170 which makes the noise worse, the WM61 is just too small.

BTW electret microphones do not require an external bias, these guys are very confused. I also disclosed the feedback via the cut pin on the capsule on the micbuilders site years before this, didn't see the point of including it in the article because the capsule where the case is an input is hard to use. Zap or Eric could confirm that.
Pretty please ? I really can't find this circuit anywhere on diyaudio, I would really appreciate it if someone has it. Big thanks
