Opr sm57 mod



OPR 57 Mod!
This mod is for the classic Shure SM57! Some love em and some hate em, but there's definitely something about them! With this mod we remove the hate and reveal the more of the love with the aid of our own custom made toroidal output transformer known for there hi resolution 3d sound, just like those found in our U-mod Ribbon mics.
Think, HiFi 57!

Does the $130 USD price include the mic?

Wish my 57 sounded like this!

Wow!! Very impressive - the sound difference between stock and your modded version is night and day. No question that I'd spend far less time 'eq sculpting' my guitar tone if I recorded with an OPR57 at the front of my chain.
- May need to get one of these...

Sorry for the confusion.
That price is B. Y. O mic I could source a mic for you for an extra $120.00 USD or $150 AUD
Hope this helps.
Cheers

This MOD can be done with that mic and others too . I can custom make a torroidal transformer for any dynamic or Ribbon Mic you require.

Do you still sell the other mics on you website? Looks a little dated reason I ask.
