    On the ic chip and the transistor, could they degrade at all, or they just work or not work?

    I ran a D-104 for years. Tried a little rough Plus 3 and fell in love. Then bought a SSK, and a CS-1. GREAT mics, that's for sure. Still have all of them.

    What's the difference between a Plus 3 and a Super Sidekick?

    Plus 3 has a compressor built in. A bit punchier than the SSK. SSK has a more mellow sound. The CS-1 has the compressor, but is 5 or 6 wire, iirc.

    Pretty sure the "4000" chip is type "MFC4000". This chip is too old to be in my 1976 Motorola Linear Databook. Cross-ref book says it's a 250 mW audio power amplifier.

    It's probably listed in the "Motorola HEP" cross-reference book from the early 70s or ate 60s, but my copy is buried. Unknown how deep.

    Online search is pitiful. The chip is just too old.

    Once upon a time there was a line of cross-reference replacement semiconductors called the "ECG" product line. Their number for this part was "ECG752". Found that data, but not the original Motorola sheet.

    never seen a ssk with a 4000 IC, the ones i have seen all had lm386,
    i always thought it was a strange choice using a chip designed for driving a small loudspeaker for a mic amp.

    I recently went though mine, cleaning the contacts & spiffing up the outside. Was beat up when I got it 30 years ago. My first ever desk mic! Always got good audio reports; I love it. Currently in use on my new Magnum 1.

    Ha Ha! I did the same here. I've got a couple +3's and the golden SSK. There are 5 axial electrolytics in the +3's that need to be changed. I was thinking of putting together a kit for this but would not be able to ship for less than $8. Would anyone bite on this?

    As I read this thread, I thought to myself "I should have swapped in some new caps while I was in there! They must be ancient."

    I wish I had the equipment to see the difference between new caps and 40 yr old caps...

    Im getting ready to replace the three electrolytic caps on the amp board. What i am wondering is if a 47ufd will work in place of the 50ufd with a bit higher voltage rating? Same for the two 22ufd at 160v rated caps that I bought. 160v is much higher than the originals.
