Could someone tell me something more about this particular miniature
microphone. I got it from a friend who told me that is was some special
microphone for Nagra SNST-R tape recorder (as he was told when he
got it from his friend). It used to have a square metal screw-in three
pole
connector on the other end - but friend of mine cut it and tried to
solder
it to a standard microphone jack to fit his Sony pocket voice recorder.
However, he wasn't satisfied with the sensitivity of this external mic
so,
continued using built-in and gave this one to me.

As you can see from photos it is quite small, covered with ugly looking
black rubber (just to protect it?)
Microphone capsule under this rubber coating appears to be 3D rectangle
shaped with two narrow cut-outs on the front side.

Can someone tell me something more about this microphone: what kind
of type is, sensitivity, how it can be connected to a non-Nagra
equipment
(my guess it that some power to it has to be supplied?).

Any further info is more than appreciated!

Photos of the microphone could be found at:

The URL is unreadable, but that description sounds like a Knowles capsule.
Is it anything like the stuff on http://www.knowles.com?

No, it doesn't look like one of these. For example, all these do have some
little tube attached to it - while this one doesn't have. Just 2 cut-outs on
the front side. I've removed rubber coating in order to find some inscription
of manufactorer/model - but no luck, nothing of the kind on tha capsule
itself... :( 

As for the link: should work... what browser are you using? What does it say:
an error message or you can see content of my Yahoo briefcase but nothing
happen when you click on mic1 and mic2 images?

Not all of them do. Many of them are flat and have a grille on one side.

I was using Safari, but I also tried Firefox. Could not get DNS for the
address on the URL.

But from the further description, it sounds like it's larger than the
Knowles capsules. Shure made some surveillance mikes in the seventies
sort of like that, and if I can find my old Shure book I will see what
the part numbers were.

Hmmm.... I don't know why...
Anyway, I've uploaded photos in : news:alt.binaries.schematics.electronic
newsgroup - so, I guess you can retrieve it from there easily.

Yes, it seems that Knowles capsules are significantly smaller.
