Yes you are both correct, the original condenser needs to be disconnected for the Easycap to be at its most optimum, but the Easycap is not a short cut to get a mag working, the magnetism and bobbin have to be in good or refurbished condition, it is just repositioning the condenser for easy access in the future in case of failure it can be replaced without sending the mag to be reconditioned. Yes you need keepers to keep the magnets from losing magnetism, I was forgetting someone might just try to do this without the correct info, I’m waiting for the bobbin to be rewound and will then be able to rebuild my mag and test it. Time will tell if it’s a good move or not. Kev
