ADC SS-315X mic

Can somebody tell me what kind is the original mic for this EQ machinery (SS-315X) and where can I get one?

ADC ss-315x mic

First let me say, never use a typical looking type mic,like singers use called dynamic mic as this will damage your unit! Most pink noise type mic have a look about the size of a pencil ,called an Omni-directional electret condenser, specks for this unit call for impedance @ 1khz 2.2 kohm.,sensitivity 0db-1V/microbar,-70db,,frequency response compensated 50 to 13,000Hz,,bias 1.5V dc,,you may use this to search the Web, "pink noise mic",,or take these specks to a place like guitar center,,they will have access as they sell spectrum analyzers which come with these type of mic,,,check with local sound company, they use spec. analyzers all the time,,as long as the cable has the 1/4" plug and meets these specs your good..


I have a dead channel. Does anyone have schematic or repair manual for this ? How about actual IC replacement crossover numbers ?
Many thanks !!

Strangely, the 315 is not the same as the 315X; different (more) rear panel jackfield.....
