To provide a lower impedance output, and a 'sort of' balanced output.

I have not worked with mics in a closed space like this (pix in post #7), but I see 2 possible problems:
Is the WM61 capsule, even after mods, able to handle the SPL, which propably >120dBSPL
The spacing of the 3 mics in the treble keyboard side invites for serious lobing, and discolouration of the sound. The least I would do is test the setup with switcheable microphones, replacing the switched-off mic with a load to maintain the same level to do a compare. E

Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I'm curious if you followed through with this project? I'm also trying to come up with an accordion mic design as the price tag on the ready-made kits is pretty staggering.
