The Bock Audio Custom Shop
offers customers a way to have microphones built or customized in ways that would otherwise not be possible. The custom shop focuses on capsules and electronics, not cosmetics. We use microphone platforms which comprise our normal production metalwork. It is the place where special orders are conceived and executed. Examples of Custom Shop work include building discontinued Soundelux models, hot rodded versions of our current models, and permutations not found in regular production.
CUSTOM SHOP OPTIONS INCLUDE:
Small Diaphragm Work
Vishay Low Noise Resistors
BOCK AUDIO maintains deep test facilities and procedures, as well as a library of classic mics. For example, microphone electronics are tested from 0.002Hz to 100kHz.
EXAMPLES OF CUSTOM SHOP MICS
BASED ON CLASSIC DESIGNS:
407 with EF or UF14 Tubes & Vintage Capsules
Customized Capsule U195
Solid State 507 the Ellfet
Hybrid Tube/Fet Electronics for high
headroom without high Negative Feedback
Bock Custom work does not work with miniaturization, rather, robust form factors designed to last for decades. As a philosophical point, the modern manufacturer chooses one of two paths: build for efficiency of construction & the least amount of materials possible, or build keeping in mind the ability to repair years down the road. We choose the latter.
