I founded microphonic in 2010 with the first microphonic light. Having always been inspired by music in my art I love the work of restoring these uncared for musical tools and repurposing them into functional works of art.

I am an occasional estate sale goer and in 2009 I chanced upon an estate sale that would inspire me in a whole new direction from black and white film photography. This estate was the property of a mechanical junkie. This man had microphones, record players, 8 track players, radios etc. that he had been taking apart and wiring them back together. Just experiments to see what he could create I suppose. This was the inspiration for the first microphonic light. I thought "I should take this junk and make it useful!"

I bought a Shure 545S Unidyne III on an Atlas floor stand. This was the shell of a microphone and soon after it became the first microphonic light.

I love so much about this work. The challenge of finding a non working microphone. The work of restoring them to their original beauty, finding the right size and color cloth covered wire, making sure every nut and screw is chromed and finding the perfect vintage bakelite cord switch and plug to complete the vintage feel.

Each microphone is shipped in a flight case with custom cut foam lining to ensure safe handling and delivery.

Thanks for looking and I love feedback!
