Klaus Heyne:
I have used the services of Clarence Kane (ENAK) over the years, and was always pleased with his loving approach to ribbon mic restoration.

k jacobson:
I just recently had an RCA BK-5A restored by Clarence. He replaced the ribbon and wiring, and refinished it.  It looks like new again.  Great work! It's interesting to read a story on him, and I'm glad there are such people still around. Thanks for posting the article!

OOF!:
Wow!  thanks for the link.  Clarence has done work on my RCAs for years and now I can put a face behind the voice.  He's right across the river ($4 shipping via FedEx) but I've never been to his place.  Couldn't find a nicer or more highly-skilled guy.  He also did a beautiful job matching a 2nd 4038 to the one I had.
His shop is just as I imagined it would be.  I must make the trip sometime.

Wow, Clarence did my ribbons about 15 years ago. He was pretty up there in age back then.  Not that age is a problem at all... I had heard he took on an apprentice a few years back. I'm glad he's still "the man". A great guy indeed.
