I'll be the first to admit I am no George Costanza but read on because these 80% nickel chokes are headed out to serve an interesting duty.
A few months back I received a call fro Dimitri at Ronin Applied Sciences about the possibility of using an inductor as a plate load in a microphone capsule. Of course I am always up for a cool new idea so I did up prototype. Apparently the recent showing at the NY AES convention created a bit of a stir and more inducors are going out tomorrow.
Below are some pictures of the finished product and at an introductory price of $4200 it should be a giant killer! Total props go out to Dimitri for thinking outside the box and trying something as silly as a 140hy 5ma 80% nickel choke loading a c3g in a mic capsule! (full specs from Dimitri)
In talking to a few of my historian friends there was some recollection of an inductive loaded tube in a mic capsule by telefunken in the 30's and if anybody out there has any references to others who used inductors in capsules please chime in.
