ECM Mic Preamplifier
Circuit : Andy CollinsonEmail:anc@mitedu.freeserve.co.ukDescription:A microphone amplifier that may be used with either Electret Condenser Microphone (ECM) inserts ordynamic inserts, made with discrete components.
Both transistors should be low noise types. In the original circuit, I used BC650C which is an ultra lownoise device. These transistors are now hard to find but BC549C or BC109C are a good replacement.The circuit is self biasing and will set its quiescent point at roughly half the supply voltage at theemitter of the last transistor.The electret condenser microphone (ECM) contains a very sensitive microphone element and aninternal FET preamp, a power supply in the range 2 to 10 volts DC is therefore necessary. SuitableECM's may be obtained from Maplin Electronics. The 1k resistor limits the current to the mic. Thisresistor should be increased to 2k2 if a supply voltage above 12 Volts DC is used and is not needed ifthe Mic insert is dynamic. The output impedance is very low and well suited to driving cables overdistances up to 50 meters. Screened cable therefore is not necessary.The frequency response measured across a 10k load resistor is plotted below simulated using a 12Vpower source:
