All of my microphones are made by hand in my Detroit Studio. Each mic is built one at a time, and never reproduced. The idea is for you to own YOUR James Kaye custom microphone model. I hand select all materials and components with the highest quality in mind. My process is completely free form. I do not limit my pieces to certain materials. I am constantly trying new processes and materials in order to express, and inform my vision .I work with my collectors loosely with regards to shape and color. Most of the creative decisions are made by me. I have found, that the art just “happens” when I am able freely create. The collector is always happily surprised when they see the finished product. I find and use vintage elements, that I test, and guarantee for 1 year.
