Offered today is a classic text, Microphones: Design and Application, by Lou Burroughs. This the first edition, 1974 and it was edited by John Woram who wrote the introduction as well. Burroughs was the Vice-President, Professional Product Electro-Voice Inc. Lou Burroughs and Al Kahn, during the Great Depression, incorporated under the name Elevtro-Voice in South Bend, Indiana. Mr. Burroughs, who died in 1986, was renowned in the industry. His lectures were classics and this book is essentially a compendium of them. One story told was that during his lecture, when discussing the durability of EV microphones, he unplugged the EV 664, that he was talking through, hammered a nail into a board with it, hooked it back up and continued the lecture.

    Here is a memorium to Burroughs: (link)


    Postal Policy:

      The only postal option offered is the United States Postal Service, Priority or Express mail.   

      International postage will likewise be provided solely by the USPS but surface mail options are not provided as the delay in delivery often results in disputes and anxiety on both ends. For all international orders using Express Mail, the buyer must supply a phone number.

      In some instances, I have added a service charge to the postage. This is because the shipping calculator has consistently underestimated the actual shipping. It is my policy to refund the excess shipping if I have overcharged. I usually try to ship using a fixed rate box. On occasion, the rate for a priority box is less than the fixed rate and in that instance, I will likewise refund the difference. I do not charge for handling. The actual shipping will be listed on the label so you may verify that you are only paying the actual cost.
