Microphone Color Options
We offer a wide selection of custom color options for the large-diaphragm, 50mm microphone kits. This includes the T-12 and T-47, and the S-12, S-47, S-87.
This item can only be ordered if there is a compatible S-series or T-series microphone kit in the same shopping cart.
We do not offer alternative colors for the S3 series kits, the T-25, or the S-25; all of these use a different sized body than the ones shown on this page.
The custom colors shown here are powdercoated. Powdercoating is a dry painting process that is oven-cured at 200°C (~400°F). In the heat of the oven, the dry pigment particles melt and bond to form an extraordinarily strong, durable surface -- much more so than DIY "rattle can" spray paint finishes.
All powdercoat bodies have a small vintage-style diamond shaped "MP" logo badge affixed to the front. These badges are made of embossed brass.
We plan to introduce short-run color options here. We do not plan to stock every color forever. If you see something you like, buy it, because it might not be restocked.
We try to keep this page updated with available colors and quantities, but there is a possibility that you order something we don't have in stock. If you choose something that we don't have available, we will ship a black body and refund the custom color fee.
These color upgrades are sold at or below our cost to produce them. The Matte Green finish requires two coats (green and clear), with special handling (e.g., if the green base coat is not baked at the exact temperature for precisely the correct amount of time, the clear coat won't adhere, requiring both coats to be manually stripped and redone), and therefore costs more.
