Can I use an old FHM-1 microphone with a Maestro I have just purchased but not received. I plan on using my Heil 781 plugged into the 6500, most of the time. If I remote the Maestro to my shop will the FHM-1 work with proper cable or do I need the FHM-2

    My Flex 6700 came with the FHM-1 mic. I never did like the way it sounded. A year later I bought a used Maestro and with it I received the FHM-2 mic. Wow, what a difference. It sounds normal so that is what I use with the 6700. I tried the FHM-1 with the maestro and it worked fine but again had the same terrible audio as noticed on the 6700. So both will work. Further research revealed that the early FHM-1 mics were shipped missing some internal components such as a capacitor and possibly a resistor.

    I have the FHM-1 microphone with my 6300 and Maestro.  When I received the 6600, it came with the FHM-3 microphone.  So I am wondering what the differences between these 3 choices are.  Is the FHM-3 improved over the FHM-2, etc.?
