Relic from the past

This is the second ribbon mic we made. The first one doesn't even have a body! The bottom cap is made of wood. The body is a part of an antenna mast that blew down and was machined and had some slots added. The blue foam is that stuff that Radio Shack has. We still have it and it still works, sort of.

Y'gotta start somewhere. Circa 2003. Even that far back, "nano" was in the plan.

We're preparing for AES which will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco this year on October 2 through 5. Exhibits open on the 3rd.

This year we have a much better booth location, thanks to a swift move by Brad Lunde of Las Vegas Pro Audio, who had a cancellation and offered it to us even though his company does not distribute our products. It's the type of thing we like about this field and the collegial manner that is held by many, though perhaps not all, of our fellow gear makers and sellers, is very welcome and appareciated.

Everybody asks us what we will be bringing that is new. I can assure you that there will be something new, and it might not be as simple as a new product, but will represent the rapid shift toward Roswellite ribbon microphones over the obsolete "foils". Enough for now.

This year, we are pleased to have Jose Tenorio joining us at the booth. Welcome Jose!

Great Review of el Diablo Ribbon Microphone

Sound on Sound is one of our favorite print magazines and this month's issue has a glowing review of el Diablo in it. Reviewer Hugh Robjohns recounts his experience with el Diablo, the Mercenary Edition, performing various studio duties, including the kick drum of course. His conclusion: There is nothing else like it. Roswellite makes all the difference!

SOS is a print mag, and I recommend you subscribe. You can get the online review here.

The speed of gravity

what is the speed of gravity? Find out here.“That one body may act upon another at a distance through a vacuum, without the mediation of any thing else, by and through which their action and force may be conveyed from one to the other, is to me so great an absurdity, that I believe no man who has in philosophical matters a competent faculty of thinking, can ever fall into it.” Isaac Newton.
