That’s a great idea!

+1 for DIY deets.

Yet again I find myself astounded at the quailty of SOS forum particpants. Take a bow everyone. :clap:

Since everyone seems quite keen, I’ll do a quick how to guide with all the part numbers and where to get them from when I get a chance. They’re not difficult to make but there are a few shortcuts I’ve learnt from making large batches that make things a lot easier. I’ll put it in the DIY section but I’ll post a reply here as well when it’s up. Since I have reregistered I can’t reply to messages but will when I can.

Take care

As someone who knows what they'll have when they've made one, great! These mics are a lot more fun than the lo-fi plugins you can pick up.

Cheers,

Just as an aside here is the BM104 I built last year just for fun as a one off. Four capsules, two lofi and two dynamic, set in two suspended rows inside two hubcaps from a Hillman Super Imp. Sounds great on guitar amps.

Just a quick one, I sent a couple to I Speak Machine in LA and they used them on Sunday on a live broadcast. If you've not heard of them they are fantastic and well worth a listen.

take care

Aha - Tara Busch and Maf Lewis - yes, I suspect they are well known here in the SOS Forums (and they are Facebook friends of mine ;) )

Gents both of them, they even did an unboxing video with the help of their dog Strelka. It might be a while till I can do a how to guide (Maybe in the summer.) but I'm going to do a stock check and I might have a few freebies. If you have a burning desire for one just drop me a line.

PS Musicradar put my pedalboard up on their site, if anyone out there plays guitar they might be interested. Mine is on the front page and page 9.

Just a quick one, I found an old Soundcloud account I forgot I had so I spruced it up and it has examples of my mic on plus a repost of I Speak Machine's War Pigs cover. I don't know if I'll be putting anything else up but I might post the isolated guitar lines from Demetrius and the other stuff I'm working on when I get a chance,

Gorgeously distorted sound on Tara's vocals there Owen! 8-)

Apologies if this has already been posted previously on this thread, but following my listen to the above, a quick Internet search also brought this more review-like link of the BM88 up ,and I enjoyed listening to that as well (particularly to the vocal sounds):

Lovely! :thumbup:

I can't listen to the track because it's been deleted.
But how about a megaphone through a distortion pedal?
