Crank Sturgeon in a few sentences…

I've been building contact microphones since the early 1990's. It started as an art school thing: a lot of us (art students) had heaps of sonic ideas, but zero actual musical talent. This resulted in frequent trips to thrift stores, dumpsters, and, if we had a little extra cash, Radio Shack - anything it took to get our projects and up and running and sounding cool. My DIY approach evolved over the years, as a sound-making artist and also as a technician, working for audio component manufacturers. The combination of experimental tinkering and professional work led to developing a product line of microphones: not only was I using these microphones on my tours, there was a growing number of inquiries on how to purchase them.

Fast-forward to 2007. I started Huso Solutions as an official small business / DBA so as to better promote my inventory of DIY transducers, shaker boxes, gadgets, and, of course: contact microphones. I signed up with Etsy in 2013.
