BlowsMeAwy GregMar 17, 2009 5:16 PM GMT
Charlie Musselwhite liked his first BlowsMeAway mic so much he asked me to make another for a hot element he discovered in his attic. He called me to to tell me he went though a bunch of old mics and found one that sounded really special. When he brought it to me, it was an old beat up Shure 707A shell - and I assumed it had a crystal in it. It did indeed sound awesome. When I opened it up, it turned out to be a plain vanilla 99B86 controlled magnetic element. Just goes to show - 1 out of every 75 or so of these elements is simply really special - doesn't matter whether it is CM or CR.
Anyway, the new mic is cocobolo and purpleheart wood, with Charlie's signature aluminum grill (I make these out of solid aluminum billet). I added a turquoise inlay to match his ring.

That is beautiful!
Do you think I could have Mr Musselwhites old one?
Wow, Greg. That's nice as hell. I played through one that you made for Rupert. That one sounded good too.
Hah, Cheeky :D
It ain't for sale! I'd buy it back from him myself but I don't think he'll part with it. He really likes it!
What can you do?
I guess I should add that if anyone is interested in having a mic made for them, all the info is on my web site. Head for the Custom Mics page for the wood mics and the Ultimate Series Mics page for the Ultimate mics like Jason uses.
I like this "M"grill.
