Yes. It probably won't be for about another two weeks. I'll keep you updated.

I am guessing these arent antique stores or yard sales in Brooklyn. If so, I will be very busy next weekend when I am out there.

The antique store was in Brooklyn. The yard sale was upstate.

Hey Ubertar - did the cat from Wired.com get in touch with you? They're doing a photo essay on "Steam Punk" ribbon mics. Your mic would fit right in. Send me an email if he didn't.

The transformers and the xlr connectors arrived today, and I started work on these. I should have the first batch ready sometime next week... stay tuned. I'll be doing some other R&D along these lines as well...

Paul, that's fun news. Out of curiosity are you using switchcraft, or neutrik connectors?

Yeah I didn't post because it seemed like tons already were. If you're doing a second run of these so the rest of us could benefit from this generosity I'm in!
