Starrett Steel used in Ribbon Microphones
Just any old steel won't do. We use Starrett tool steel for several components in Crowley and Tripp mics.
If you do not see "Made in USA" on a product, you can assume it isn't made here. Some manufacturers go to great lengths to maintain the Made in USA mark, since in Europe, Japan and Oceana, the country of origin adds value to the product. Just like Fender guitars, the ones made in the US sell for a much higher price than one made in the Far East, reflecting the differences in quality that are very apparent in side-by-side comparisons.
