DIY Microphone Workshop

Come build microphones at Miramar College, Saturday, May 11, 8:30am – 3:30pm.

Arts Building, 2nd floor, Room H-216.

We’ll spend the day using hand-tools, bending and forming metal, soldering, and making a world-class, studio-quality AUSTIN Ribbon Microphone in a workshop setting. You’ll need to watch the video instructions below before the workshop, but on the day of the event, all the tools will be available – just bring a lunch, and a healthy appetite for hands-on learning… even if you’ve never soldered or built anything before!
Because this workshop is at a college, the Kits are student-discounted $24 for this event (Just $225 each… And we bring all the tools!), but I am required to collect CA State Tax, because the workshop is being held in California.

Click the banner above for audio samples and reviews of the Austin Mic Kit, or simply Google “Austin Ribbon Microphone” for many independent reviews, blogs and videos.

Access to the Video Tutorials and Written plans are online HERE


There is limited time at the workshop. It is REQUIRED that you download and view the plans and videos beforehand, so you know what to expect and your build goes as smoothly as possible.
*** Also, bring a lunch or snacks for yourself. I don’t know if there are vending machines nearby, or when the cafeterias are open.

The plans are in PDF format, and the videos are in Apple, Windows, and Mobile formats. If you have any problems viewing the files, please contact for another option.
If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact contact Rick at Austin Ribbon Microphones.
