Dayton Audio EMM6

I bought a Dsyton Audio Emm6 mic in a junk shop for 50p!!
Looks like they are used for measurement purposes.
I have tried recording an acoustic guitar with it and it sounds pretty good.
Anyone know anything about these mics?

Almost the same as a Behringer ECM8000. Just a basic omni electret.

The internet is full about these mics. I've never opened a Dayton, but there are a few revisions to the ECM8000. The oldest ones are made with though-hole components. The newer ones have SMB components. There's an error in the ECM8000's schematics. Easily correctable and yields +6 dB output. The one caveat is that the electret capsule is glued in place. Very hard to remove without destroying it.
