What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

A low cost lo-fi solution to the studio effects your plugins can’t recreate. Our new Microphone range is overflowing with lo-fi tones and unique sounds to give your recordings an extra flavour. We have developed 2 unique lo-fi microphones!

The Cold Cup Deluxe:

The Cold Cup Deluxe adds a new flavour to your mic locker. ​ A peizo microphone that creates unique filtered lo-fi tones from the sound of a stainless steel cold cup. ​ The microphone element is capturing the source sound as it reflects round the inside of its housing, creating a unique resonance to add that Lo-fi sound your recordings have been waiting for.

The Bullet Tumbler

The Bullet Tumbler houses a peizo microphone and records unmistakably lo-fi sounds. ​ Topped with a julep strainer for a refreshing mix of style and resonant tones. ​ Shake up your sound with a lo-fi combination of Spirit Grille Microphones.

Risks and challenges

If this project is funded, I am estimating that I will be able to make the microphones for November 2017, depending on the amount that are ordered and the speed of manufacture I may have to push the release date back. I will keep you notified of what is happening and I will be posting regular updates on my social media pages as well as answering your questions.
