New hand-built ribbon mic, featuring a custom case I'm pretty proud of. (Also it sounds good).
I used a motor from https://www.bumblebeepro.com/shop/re-254-ribbon-microphone-motor/ and wrapped the element in a thin sheet of foam, CNC milled out slots in the metal hammond project box, then covered that up with a laser-cut microphone motif and some linen to act like a pop-filter (kind of).
The whole thing needs a _lot_ of gain to sound good, and therefore needed better RF/EMF shielding than I am used to, which made up most of the annoying parts of the project -- but it was still only a single day from start to finish.
@insom I was unaware there were not terrible diy kits for this kind of thing. Maybe I should make some old fashion looking mics someday for fun
@insom nice... i actually like it.. how much would build one cost? not like I am able to or anything... just wondering
@viktormadarasz Hi, sorry I didn't see your reply. It cost about 150 EUR for the parts from https://www.bumblebeepro.com/ and then I had to add the enclosure and XLR connector. I'd call it around ~200 EUR. It's _probably_ not worth it just as a microphone (you could buy a better one for the money, I'm sure), but I had fun and I use it daily for work.
