Our mission is to research vintage audio design
and manufacturing techniques, understand how it achieves its quality of sound and then use that knowledge to create new products based
on the needs of today's audio engineers. For example, we talked directly to the engineers who designed
the transformers in the historic Telefunken equipment and used that knowledge to build our own custom transformers
to meet the needs of new applications.
|Upcoming AMI F44 Microphone
Years ago, Oliver experimented with a number of small diaphragm condenser (SDC) microphone deisgns.
Some of them used tube amplifiers and one used a FET based buffer amplifier. After sending the microphone around to
several studios, the mic was put into production as an OEM product. This fall, it will be re-launched with a new amplifier
design and called the AMI F44. Come check it out!
U47 Kit Assembly Guide
to a number of requests, Oliver decided to build up one of our AMI U47 kits and take pictures along the way. This guide will assist folks in building up this kit by showing the order in which Oliver builds his microphones, tips on how to assemble
different sections and serves as a general overview of building your own microphone.
Blackspade Microphones Shipping
Well it's taken a long time to get here but after launching the Blackspade UM17 a year ago, it's brothers the UM17R, UM25 and UM25C are now at a point where they are shipping out of our facility in Kansas and Blackspades facility in Switzerland. So
far, the reaction has been that they are worth the wait. Contact your local dealer to find out about pricing and availability. Check out the mics here on our website and then see what folks have to
say on Facebook at either AMI, Inc. or Blackspade Acoustics.
of AMI and Mercenary Audio Business Relationship
After six years and two large production
runs, the Mercenary Audio KM69 has been one popular microphone! When the KM69 was developed none of us
knew if it would be a hit or not. But thanks to the marketing expertise of Mercenary Audio and the design
work and manufacturing provided by AMI, Inc., the KM69 became a huge success. Unfortunately, now that we’re
at the end of the most recent production run, due to our other projects and obligations on our plate, AMI will no longer manufacture
the KM69 for Mercenary Audio. AMI will continue
to provide spare parts and any out of warranty service support needed for the AMI manufactured KM69's.
Update July 13, 2012. As of today, AMI will no longer supply any of our products to Mercenary
Audio and have removed their AMI dealer status. For any customers that may have had special orders with Mercenary Audio, please
note that we have cancelled all open PO's that they had and we will not be shipping them any more product. We apologize for
the inconvenience. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
