Build Your Own Condenser Microphone #MusicMonday

via Bobby Owsinski blog

We’re in a golden age of audio gear kits, with more manufacturers than ever offering DIY kits to build high-quality gear. Need a preamp, EQ or compressor? If you can wield a soldering iron, there are many kits to choose from. Need a condenser or ribbon microphone? There are multiple kits available there as well…

Audio Builders Workshop has been championing DIY gear with its seminars for quite a while, and now it offers a YouTube channel showing the unboxing of DIY kits and tools from companies like Collective Cases, DIY.RE, Microphone-Parts, JLM Audio, Hairball, Expat Audio, Bumblebee DIY Pro Audio, Austin Microphones, Audibility Recording, GKL gKit Baby / ORA, Vintage Microphone PCB Kit, Sparkos Lab, Geistnote and many more!

Keep in mind that although you may be building something that will give you a relatively high-quality result, you’re not getting the precision and quality control like with a piece of gear from a manufacturer. Or as they used to say (haven’t heard the phrase in a long time), “your mileage may vary” with your build.
