Enfield, CT (October 12, 2005)--CharterOak Acoustic Devices announced their shift from a one-year warranty policy, to a lifetime guarantee on all CharterOak products at AES over the weekend. The shift from a one-year warrantee to a lifetime guarantee is both a move to put new customers at ease and a testament to the build quality and care taken with every CharterOak microphone.

According to CharterOak, every microphone they shipped hand assembled with an assortment of the best sounding parts gathered from around the world, picked in extensive listening tests in a studio environment at its Enfield headquarters. Every mic is ear tested in the studio for a period of 24 hours in addition to a 7-day burn of our tube mics.

"Our extremely low number of service issues over the past 120 microphones sold is a testament to the build quality of our products," remarked Michael Deming founder and president of CharterOak. "Furthermore, our passion for giving our customers what they want, and our willingness to work with them, to further customize the microphones to suit their specific needs based on what they are hearing in the studio, made moving to a lifetime warranty a logical progression in the evolution of CharterOak."

Current owners of CharterOak microphones are encouraged to contact CharterOak with updated address information in order to obtain a new warranty card and arrange for a factory service which could include any of the following, cleaning, tube and or transformer replacement, head amp upgrade depending on serial number, and testing.

Visitors of AES will have the opportunity to view and audition CharterOak microphones on site to experience first hand the quality hand-assembled and inspected microphones. At the show will be the SA538 dual diaphragm condenser utilizing the center terminated S-1 capsule; the SA538B, a side address dual diaphragm vacuum tube condenser microphone which employs the side terminated S-2 capsule type and as a result provides extended bass response and extremely smooth treble response; and the S600 front address vacuum tube condenser sold in pairs which employs the S-3 capsule. CharterOak will also debut the E700 FET condenser for universal and broadcast applications. The E700 employs the 1.22" dual diaphragm S-4 capsule.
