Although most information about
products under development need to be kept confidential until
official release. We like to share what we can about the new
products we are working on.
NEW MICROPHONE TECHNOLOGY
We have developed a new
technology applicable to phantom powered microphones and ribbon
microphones. This will provide new features not currently
available on any microphone. We have delayed the release of our
"Compass" model for a rather long time so that we can
incorporate this technology in it. Another reason for
delays in release of Compass was that it suffered from a problem
common to many tube mics currently in the market; a momentary
loud signal, would decrease the output for a fraction of a
second afterwards. Although generally people seem to accept
this, or not notice it from tube mics, we would not release a
mic that is not up to our standards. The good news is that the
improved circuit for compass is simpler, sounds more pure, and
does not display this problem at all.
K/\M Tube Guitar Amps
Full tube amps with moderate
power so that they can be cranked up for good saturated sound
in the studio, and yet with enough power for stage use are in
the works. They will have a cool new look.
Update: A limited quantity of our
Lumberjack amp has been released. The response to the tone of
this amp has been very positive.
K/\M Plug & Play guitars with
The aluminum guitars we make have
a unique sound. We know that most people like to have the Plug
& Play pickup functionality with a conventional guitar body
and at a reasonable price. So a "SuperStrat"
type body with interchangeable pickups is in the works.
Update: Due to positive response
to our Axiom guitars and requests for a guitar with two Plug &
Play Pickups, a Tele style guitar will be released in first half
