we have been one busy bee


I haven't posted in a while, and wanted to be sure people knew the simple reason why. We've just been so darn busy! I've literally been sent more work than I can handle and will be playing catch up well into next year. This is a good problem to have, and I'm very grateful to have it. It seems like it took a few years, but the Signal Art message is catching on. We have some cool plans for 2021 which include a newly revamped website and several new Signal Art mods/products announced throughout the year. I hope to offer an official mod for the original Warm Audio WA-87 microphone and a few other new mods; as well as tweaking the Signal Art 47/48 product line. I'm thinking of adding some further clarification to the baseline edition and perhaps offering an even more affordable, cardioid-only (vocal mic) edition of the U47 that is simplified in design but has zero compromise to audio fidelity. Just a way for people who strictly want a straight cardioid mic to save a little money on the build. We will also have our own newly designed PCBs unveiled for the Signal Art 47/48. We've recently begun working with V-Cap to start using their premium audio output capacitor for the output stage of the premium 47/48 as well. One of the things that I promised myself is that I would continue to re-invest whatever revenue Signal Art earned back into the company, and to that end we've been able to do some really cool things such as having our own capacitor made for one of the most common values we utilize in our power supply (the Signal Art 47/48 has 5 of these). We worked with SuperTech Taiwan to have a custom made power supply capacitor whose specs (10,000 hour lifespan!, 105 degree Centigrade, 450v) rival the very best that Panasonic have to offer (which is what we used up till now)... but these are 'ours'. and we now have a lifetime supply. These really came out beautiful, and we hope to do more cool things like this in the future if we continue to be fortunate.

best,

Chad
