The New Contact Mics Are Here! The New Contact Mics Are Here!

there have been many phone calls in the last couple of weeks.  Many of you have been wondering if we were getting in a new shipment of Cryptic contact mics. Some of you have been wondering if they even really existed.  Alas, they do exist, and, they were actually on their way.  Wait no longer and come get ’em while they are still here.tmp_share-1

The centerpiece of this photo is this 60’s Slingerland kit rewrapped in purple sparkle.  Truly a great sounding, awesome looking little kit.  *Bonus* It’s under a grand.

Flanked by the sweetest Coronet (1965) I’ve ever played and a gorgeous example of a Crestwood custom (1966).  Check out the tailpiece on the custom.  ImageImageImage

1965 Fender Jaguar that was stripped of its original Dakota Red finish, revealing a really beautiful and resonant piece of wood. This Jag has a meaty tone – with strong midrange characteristics. Not too much biting top end – enough to know it’s a Jaguar, but not so crispy it hurts. It’s a sweet machine.

Vintage Jenco Vibraphone

We have a beautiful set of vintage Jenco Vibes (also known as “vibrabells” in the early days of Jenco) on our floor right now.  A 2.5 octave from C-F with 1.5″ x 0.5″ Aluminum bars, a perfect size for the space conscious New Yorker.  The motor is in awesome condition and they sound amazing.  With a Black Diamond Pearl finish, these will be a great addition to someone’s studio or music project.
