||Hey Folks, just a few random musings about my work in general and the TCM-1050 mod in particular.
If you are like me, you trust your own ears to be your guide. Why not spend some time with the sound samples here and decide for yourself - no confusing \'expert advice\' from anonymous Internet forum posters (who are these people anyway?) - just sound samples comparing my work to classic mics. The kind of sound that has stood the test of time, is still revered, and may just be the sound you want on your recordings.
Did you know the MJE-K47 capsule was designed to convey the classic timbre balance of its original Neumann namesake? But I\'ve designed in more extended high frequency response and a bit \"snappier\", more contemporary transient response.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my mentor, David Blackmer (dBx Inc. and Earthworks Microphone founder) whom I worked for and studied under for 15 years from 1980 to 1995.
OktavaMod delivers the kind of audible results and a personal mic selection experience people like to write about - some 350 of their notes can be seen by clicking on the \"reviews\" link at left.
I am a full time microphone engineer - period. I dont have another day job and I dont: sell tubes on eBay, remodel houses, do concert photography, work as a recording engineer, build tube amplifiers, wind transformers nor do mastering work. Just mics - its my passion.
Did you know OktavaMod just instituted a 3-low-monthly-payment option on the NT1a and 1 mod and we are adding more models soon?
And we just started offering FREE or reduced price INTERNATIONAL shipping - this makes OktavaMod as affordable to international clients as their US counterparts.
And finally we offer a 5 year warranty on mods and will pick up the return shipping costs in the unlikely event of a failure. Oh - your purchase is fully refundable for your peace-of-mind.
But talk is cheap on the Internet. My own included ;)
Just use your own ears and listen to samples recorded with Gold and Platinum-talent recorded in an iconic Hollywood studio and come to your own conclusions based on sound. Not talk.
