Our Austin BLACKMIC is hand-built to order, and Made In The USA for $399! 


(Read that again!)


The Austin BLACKMIC competes sonically against brand-name ribbon microphones with $600 price tags... And those microphones are made and assembled in Asia, and only tested in the USA to make sure they weren't damaged in transit.


Austin Mics supports our local economy. USA, Baby!!

  • We purchase raw materials locally from an industrial metal wholesaler.
  • Two local machine shops make our internal components, mill our microphone bodies, and powder-coat the enclosure.
  • Our Austin OTA-2 transformer is custom-wound for us in Dallas, TX.
  • Our parts are cut to length and bagged-up by real people in San Diego, CA.


Note: The Ribbon Foil is hand-pounded in Japan, then cut, corrugated and installed in the Austin Mics shop. The small steel screws are purchased through USA wholesaler McMaster Carr, who source them from various overseas manufacturers. There aren't many USA metric screw manufacturers anymore.
