I have an AKG C411L condenser contact mic,but without the power pack.So now I've built this simple buffer to power & boost the signal as well.
When I connected the C411L to it,although the mic is working,the circuit is "motorboating .The buffer works otherwise just fine with other back electret mics like Panasonic WM61 etc.I have no idea why this mic is behaving this way! Buying a power pack is out of the question,as I think it is unreasonably expensive!
The buffer is running on +/-12v dc , proper psu & the load resistor feeding the mic is 15k
As you will notice,in the original wiring, both pins 2 & 3 are tied to the mic "hot"! wire.
This is my modified wiring
Pin 1 screen
Pin 2 blue to buffer input
Pin 3 red to the 15k supply resistor.
Can anyone please tell me what I've done wrong here?
