        Really nice and you build your own mics. Impressive.

          Thanks. Building my own gear has really helped me to better understand the limitations and capabilities of the gear. Especially true with the microphones. Understanding how the diodes can increase or reduce the noise floor for example.

              Nice set up! Agreed with Mark Beeson on building your own mics...looks great! On a different note, we used to live in Bedford before relocating to New Jersey a few years ago. Thanks for sharing your space!
