A small breakthrough and update on the Compact Giga Meter thanks to Exoray.-Link
In his Giga Meter kit topic, Flynn detailed how to remove the microphone element from the Realistic Microphone heads. With this process laid out with digital photographs, I set to work following his instructions.
I'll have to repeat this process to ensure it'll work the way I think it will, but I believe I've found an even quicker way of extracting the Microphone element. Using a 3/64" miniature screwdriver (or smaller than 2mm for those who don't have such markings on their packs), I poked the screwdriver into the two "nub" holes at the top of the microphone head like so:
After applying a bit of leverage, the microphone element partially popped out (the remainder is easily removable by hand). I then drilled the element housing one one side, and I was able to extract the microphone element from the housing, leaving it free for the lighting that I hope to install:
Hope that helps.
