That’s a great idea!

Take my advice, I'm not using it.

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.

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.

Just a quick sneak peek at I Speak Machine using my mic to cover War Pigs.

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?
