New hand-built ribbon mic, featuring a custom case I'm pretty proud of. (Also it sounds good).

I used a motor from bumblebeepro.com/shop/re-254-r 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
