Up for consideration is a new mic by Oliver Archut of Archut Manufacturing Inc., -- the F44 cardioid condenser. This is an upgraded version of a mic they used to manufacture for Mercenary Audio, the highly-regarded KM69 -- but with a 6-8 dB lower self-noise, flatter high-end resonse, and at a substantially discounted price. These are wonderful mics, with a classic sound in the family of the KM84, and are fantastic for acoustic instruments, piano, overheads, and high hat. So here is your first opportunity to get this great new studio workhorse, and save $350!!!

HERE is some info from the AMI Facebook page.
In addition to designing and building the F44, AMI also builds the classic Telefunken V-series mic pres (see the new V78M). Oliver has also designed and built the Lucas CS-1 and CS-4, along with several other award-winning mics for quite a few well-known mic companies, and some of which are listed here. Also, his company AMI builds the highest-quality mic transformers, DIs, tube mic PSUs, and tube guitar amps. Because of his enclyclopedic knowledge of classic German vacuum tube audio design, Oliver is highly sought after as a designer and design consultant for a wide range of professional audio products.
