I took the replacement mics in with the originals to have them swapped out to a reputable person. The nature of the work was a little more complex than simple soldering as these components need to be bent into place through some plastic connector bits.
I got them back today and only 2 out of 6 of them work . None of the bass mics and only the two middle treble mics.
I don't know if the mics are at fault or if this is a poor soldering job.
There are much better systems like AZS and Harmonik, but they are really expensive.
The Microvox system I have been using successfully is a nice compromise between having good mics, not too much trouble with feedback and nothing to be installed inside the accordion.
But when things matter less, the cheap microphone system I got from carinidena.it actually works very well too. It does require installation inside, but it performs very well. In our orchestra we use it on the two bass accordions and we get great sound.
There are several systems that do work well, but finding them can be a bit of trial and error. Sorry to hear you ended up on the "error side" of that equation.
