They look and sound pretty damn cool. As soon as I've got £30 spare, I'm having one!

Thanks for the sale, greatly appreciated. I can ship overseas and i sent two to Florida the other week, just drop me email at info@owenthebastard.com. The two to Florida were free delivery because i could cover the costs so depending how many you buy and where they are going it might be free as well.

take care

Only 3 left so I'm going to start working on the next batch, thanks to everyone who brought one I think most, if not all, of my sales came from this forum.

I got a bit swamped last year with filming but i'm back on the ball. I'll be building 50 in the next month or so and if anyone wants a free one i've got three free so drop me a line on my facebook page with the phrase "I want a free BM88 because.." in not more then 10 easy words. In the meantime a nice fellow called Russell Cottier very kindly reviewed my mic this week and the link is below.

Take care
Owen

Quote Ron Snijders:

That's a neat description. I've just made a quick side-by-side recording of concertina using the BM88 against an sE Titan. I mixed one track Titan alone, one track BM88 alone and one with both mics. They are all .wavs and I've used no effects at all:-

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/oolqvh32mmh1vx7/pVkir5PbRk

I'm glad to have this mic. I won't be using it too often but sometimes I do want to get an "antique" sound and this mic will do that a treat. The other thing that occurs to me is that the Titan is a bright mic anyway so mixing the two together isn't something I think I would normally do, but it might be fun to mix the BM88 with my Sontronics Sigma. Two more different mics I can't think of offhand.

Thanks, Owen, this is good fun!

That's great, thanks for taking the time to do this. I think you've hit the nail on the head, it's a good special effect mic but also good paired with different mics and used quite low in the mix. I record electric guitar with a AT4081 but then i use a BM88 half as loud to add an edge to the single notes. Just because people were asking when i get the next batch they will be £30 free delivery through ebay and i'll post a link here when they are ready.

Just a quick one, I didn't have any prices for bulk buying because I thought I would sell one here and one there but I'm halfway through building the next lot and it looks like I have already got over half of them earmarked. So basically £30 for 1, £25 for orders over 10 and £20 for orders over 20, I do still ship internationally even sometimes for orders of one but drop me a line and we can sort that out. The next batch should be ready in a couple of weeks but so many are gone I'm already beginning work on the next fifty after that so drop me a line and I can put you down for this batch or the next, no deposit or purchase necessary.

Just a quick update, all my sales will now be going through jtbaudio I won't be doing any more direct sales. At the moment they have some microphones in and they'll be more available soon. I'll also post the direct link here to their BM88 page when it's up.
