Ribbon Microphone Kits

Our ribbon microphone is the standard for world-class ribbon microphone kits. Join thousands of students, musicians and sound engineers who have built a ribbon microphone that sounds amazing and is half the price of comparable brand-name ribbon microphones.


For microphone assembly you'll need common hand tools. Any specialized assembly tools are included, as well as video tutorials and illustrated plans walking you through each step. Responsive tech support is an email away, and we aim to respond within one hour.

Austin Ribbon Microphone Kits are available with your choice of three different output transformers: Lundahl, Cinemag, and our own OTA-2 dual-humbucking design, wound exclusively for us in Dallas, Texas.

Austin Ribbon Microphone Kits are proudly Made in the USA. Our parts are manufactured at local machine shops, supporting our local economy. 


For ready-to use microphones, hand-built by Austin Mics founder, Rick Wilkinson, please see our BLACKMIC page
