I saw the Ear Trumpet Labs Edwina Microphones at a live performance Sunday at the Iowa City Arts Fest by the band The Awful Purdies. They are hand-built, serious professional microphones whose bodies are constructed from tea-balls, copper plumbing pipe and salvaged objects like bicycle chain wheels.

I'm not a customer, or someone shilling for Ear Trumpet Labs. I just think they're beautiful object-de-tech. They sound great, too!
