Audio Upgrades

Jim Williams modifies a variety of microphones and pro audio gear, operating under the philosophy that mics in particular should use the best available parts because they’re the first component in the signal chain. His modifications typically involve a rework of the entire audio circuit; he replaces op amps, capacitors, and transistors with high-grade components to extend frequency response, clear up distortion, improve gain and reduce noise.
