Microphone Color Options
Use this page to order color upgrades for your T-12, T-47, S-87, S-12, and S-47 microphones or kits in the same shopping cart.
These color upgrades are NOT compatible with: S-25, T-25, S3 series, SDCs, or tube mics.
What is this?
The photos here show finished microphones, which is admittedly confusing. This page does not offer completed microphones, nor does it offer empty mic bodies for sale.
Rather, this page allows microphone and DIY kit customers to upgrade the black mic body that is normally included with the large-diaphragm S- and T-series products, to a custom powdercoat finish with a brass logo badge.
Orders for these color upgrades must be accompanied by an order for a compatible microphone or DIY kit in the same "shopping cart."
The custom colors shown here are "powdercoat" finishes. 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 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 antiqued, embossed brass.
Consider all of these to be short-run options. 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 below our cost to produce them, which is one of the reasons availability is limited.
