Hi all,

Understanding that there has been a need for more economical choices in 
parabolic dish microphones, my company will start manufacturing a new parabolic 
microphone in just a few months. While DIY parabolic microphones might save 
some money, you probably won't be getting a microphone that has been engineered 
as a finished microphone system. Our new parabolic design has been engineered 
to work with our selected microphones in a manner to increase low frequency 
response, lower high frequency peaking, while achieving exceptional low self 
noise and acoustical efficiency. The parabolic dish microphone will be 
available in several models, from basic mono, mono/stereo, to one including our 
universal microphone preamplifier (another new product currently in design). In 
combination with our preamplifier, you can have a fully adjustable, stereo, 
zoom microphone. All the choices will be lower in cost than any other 
professional parabolic dish microphones currently available.

I never liked paying too much for my equipment and spent years engineering all 
my own equipment to out perform available equipment and now want to extend that 
knowledge to produce exceptional recording equipment at reasonable prices. I am 
bringing everything I have learned about recording nature sounds and electronic 
engineering to producing the best field equipment available. While the 
equipment will be available through my current company, a new company name, to 
better suit equipment sales is in the works.
