How to get the “aurochs” ORTF stereo microphone

The project is just starting. There is a small number of units available. First step will be to send some of them into the world for testing purposes and get some feedback.

When this mic works for others as good as for me, a larger scale will be produced. This might take 3 to 4 months. On this website you will be informed about the status and the schedule.

Please contact me if you are interested in testing and reviewing.

If you are interested in using the mic for a single project only:

Rent the mic via Gearbooker

The price for the whole set is 299 € (19% German VAT included, without international shipping). This may seem a lot, but all the single parts alone are about 180 € (VAT included) per set — without development expenses, tools and working time. Therefore I think this is a fair price. Production costs may decrease with larger numbers of units, but not by much.

You can purchase the aurochs set via my Etsy shop.

The custom built cable with XLR connectors and Simple P48 will be extra 50 €. It will also soon be available in various lengths in the Etsy shop.
