Hey, I base my "assumptions" on your past actions. (continual bashing of Mick's products for example).. you stating that "I cant let it sit there for a month" was a disguised insult..you know that..cmon....


but hey, I aint mad at you. everyone has a different tactic.!

Now you're putting words into my mouth. I never wrote that. Please re-read.

Apparently your "tactics" are to smear other's statements through assumption.

As someone who has a couple mics I'm looking to have modded or upgraded, I can say after reading this and other threads that I will absolutely NOT be sending them to Tony at SPA.

I'm sorry, but it doesn't matter what kind of quality work someone does, or how long it takes for them to do it, there is simply no excuse in this day and age of instant communication to not be able to fire off a 30 second email to someone who has entrusted you with their gear worth thousands of dollars to simply keep them apprised of their status. If you want to take months trying mods out or whatever you want to do, great, just keep the client in the loop, or at the very least don't ignore their repeated calls or emails.

It's amazing to me how some folks never seem to learn how just a little bit of communication goes such a long way to maintaining client satisfaction, even if things take much longer than anticipated.

In any case, I'm sure I'll be getting in touch with either Jim or Klaus...

Anyone know the names of those in charge at Stephen Paul Audio?

They have our U87 for about 10years now.

About 2 years ago I spoke with someone there trying to track it down and the gentleman remembered the mic etc... and said would we be interested in selling the mic to them. I said i'd find out from my collegues and get back to them.

Ever since not able to get in touch.

I don't care if it takes a chunk of cash, i'd love to take these guys to court. Anyone with any further info would be greatly appreciated.

I wonder what happened to the SPA mic that PMI was going to build. Those were supposedly going to be THE BOMB.

I bet they didn't want to partner with someone who steals from their customers.

No, it was not like that. Stephen was ill, but was working with PMI to produce a mic that Stephen would have been happy with. It was taking a long time, because that is what Stephen did. Even when he was around, there was such a high demand, and Stephen was so slow, that it often took a couple of years to get mics back. But Stephen did get them back. The guy he chose to carry on the work is the guy that stopped returning mics and calls.

The PMI forum was blazing back in the day, with information from PMI and Stephen himself. People were wanting to order. There was a list to get your name on, when the mics were ready to go. In the end, I think they had a hard time sourcing parts to their satisfaction.
