    I have to redo a couple microphones and ran out of condenser elements. I do not remember what I was using. What are the best elements to use? I hear mentioned on the forum Panasonic WM-61A quite often.

    Mike, This will be going in to a HTX-100 Microphone. Not a CB microphone. Will it still sound good?

    Thanks Mike,
    I have switched out two or three HR2510 microphones with bad elements and I am told they sound fantastic. Way better than the factory microphone when compared side by side.

    WM-61A's showed up today. Are they supposed to be about half the size of the factory or Radio condenser microphone elements? They sure are not what I used the last time but if this is what everyone is talking about they do have the most sound spectrum of anything else I have looked up so far.
