We’re excited to announce the release of a series of microphone modification kits that give you all the joys of DIY microphone building with none of the painful guesswork.
Search online and you’ll find dozens of incomplete and contradictory recommendations for component upgrades. But what all those well-intentioned DIY forum posts are missing is a comprehensive, tested, and tuned circuit plan.
Our FET mod kits were designed by audio circuit guru Jim Williams (of Audio Upgrades). Jim no longer performs commercial mic mods, but we’ve been able to capture the magic of his favorite mods in kit form. If you can drive a soldering iron, you can turn some popular inexpensive mics into serious pieces of studio gear. Because Mr. Williams performed hundreds of these mods over the years — including about a dozen for himself — he had the opportunity to develop, revise, and refine a specific recipe that yields an extraordinary sonic bang for the buck.
Our Apex 460 / Alctron T-11 mod kit was designed by Brian Fox of Fox Audio Research. Brian’s non-nonsense, test-driven approach to circuit optimization yields a fantastic upgrade for this popular tube mic.
We source all the best components, hand-select and match all the paired resistors and capacitors, and package them up with a detailed, model-specific, full-color installation manual. We want to make sure your mic fires up and sounds awesome on the first try.
