Black Friday Microphone Sale 2023

New to Roswell Pro Audio?

If you are not already familiar with our microphones, we welcome the opportunity to make an introduction!

We manufacture large-diaphragm condenser microphones in northern California, combining deeply-researched and fanatically optimized circuit topologies with best-in-class components, hands-on soldering and assembly, and meticulous testing.

The "Mini K" product line offers four distinct capsule voicings and two distinct circuit designs, resulting in a collection of problem-solving microphones that readily outperform higher-cost alternatives while retaining "point and shoot" ease of use.

Read more about our origins and philosophy in an essay called "Science. Not Fiction," or in this recent MusicTech Magazine interview with company founder Matthew McGlynn.

Find video demos here, or see this collection of music videos that were Recorded with Roswell.

Shipping for "Black Friday" Microphone Sets

Domestic US - we offer a free shipping option, but we only recommend it if your delivery address is a business. The free shipping option does not include insurance, nor a signature requirement. If packages are stolen from your porch, FedEx/UPS will deny the claim, and the loss would be your responsibility. Please consider using a shipping option with insurance and/or signature requirement to avoid these risks.

International - The website's check-out system struggles to predict shipping rates accurately, and might over-charge for some bundles. If we see that you've paid too much for shipping, we would rebate the difference. We try to subsidize shipping costs, not profit from them. :-)
