More homemade contact mics

Via the instagramma. I’ve been tinkering in the studio this evening, designing some new contact mics that run to an XLR (balanced signal) output. A bit ugly at the moment, but they sound pretty good with high responsiveness and minimal noise. I added a thin sliver of cork to the back of mic to assist with grip when clamping/fixing to surfaces and/or objects. I may add some cork to the surface of the mic as well. It’s a good wood.
