Hello!

Xaudia offer microphone re-ribboning and repair services.

Yuchain Wang, musicial and producer from New Taipei City in Taiwan, shared this cover version of Joni Mitchell's 'A case of you'.



The vocals were recorded using an upgraded Lustraphone VR53 ribbon microphone. I fitted the microphone with new ribbon and magnets fitted.  The Lustraphones are a bit notorious for having a weak output signal and a very dark tone, but the changes make a big improvement to their usability. 

You can read more about the magnet upgrades in a previous post.

Andrew Cadie - Down Where the Drunkards Roll


Andrew Cadie recorded this great version of Richard Thompson's song, 'Down where the drunkards roll', using just a pair of B&O BM6x microphones to pick up his voice and acoustic guitar.




You can hear more of Andrew as he will play some recent compositions and a handful of cover versions, on Thursday 3rd December 2020 at 20:00 (Ger) / 7pm (UK) - all from his cozy studio couch. You can tune in at his facebook page or  youtube channel. 




Andrew's microphones were upgraded here at Xaudia, and fitted with new ribbons and magnets, and an upgraded transformer. These changes raise the output level and reduce the noise substantially, turning them into very fine ribbon microphones.
