Charter Oak don't return gear sent in for service Condenser Microphones
Old 3rd October 2018

In my early years I used a lot of Lang equipment. I knew Lou Lang personally. He was a genius at building equipment and also servicing it. Too bad they went out of business. What a gentlemen and was also a GREAT business man. There are good people out there who build exceptional gear but it seems from reading GS they are getting to be few and far between. Too bad.

Here for the gear
 

Still no news from Michael Deming despite numerous emails and phone calls... I've summon him to send me back my unit if he was not able to offer a solution for servicing or replacing it. No answer...

Might create a new post to take a census of people who are in the same situation.

I've sent Mike Deming the H1000A Microphone back in August and had a few emails and phone calls exchanged, until he went dark for a couple of weeks and then wrote about having a stroke and being in the hospital. A month passed since then and Mike cannot be reached anymore. Even emails return undelivered because the mailbox is full. I assume he is getting a lot of emails and not able to use a computer. I sincerely hope he is going to recover and deal with the situation. At the very least I expect to get the microphone back and try to repair it myself if Mike is not capable of doing so.

Of course you haven't heard any news.

Because for some strange reason, you guys want to keep enabling him. Which would be fine if it were just you, but you are enabling him to continue to take advantage of other people too.

Get the authorities involved. You'll get communication then. Likely not until.

If it's a true misunderstanding then no harm, no foul.

But I don't think that's what's going on.

It’s a shame, I remember hearing a SCL-1 and being blown away and have long thought about getting one, but don’t think I can risk it.

Mike Deming is also a great engineer...love his work with the Lilys, Pernice Brothers, and Beachwood Sparks...some of my favorite bands which is another reason I wanted to support him
