Giant Squid Audio Lab
Company History and
Giant Squid Audio Lab
is an audio business that has been founded by myself, Darren Nemeth.
In the past I have been
employed in various highly skilled technical fields. Among them
were Aerospace technology testing, concert venue equipment set up, and
technical surveying for the Saginaw County Road Commission. In 1994 I ran for Saginaw City
Council and presently have an appointed seat on a city committee.
A long time audio collector I noticed almost at the moment that I
logged on to the Internet in late 1996 there was demand for high
microphones on several music related usenet newsgroups and audio
In late 1998, I was a new
owner of a Mini Disc recorder and needed a source for a high quality
stereo microphone at a competitive price.
Stereo MD recorders could be
purchased at almost any electronics store but the microphones were
nonexistent and are still scarce / not available in stores.
Begining in late 1996 up
until March of 2000 I had experimented with many, many different styles
of construction and design of miniature microphones that can handle
frequent usage and loud sonic situations.
During this period had I
searched through every electronics store and ordered from every parts
catalog that I could get my hands on to find the best high quality and
most durable components suitable for high fidelity miniature microphone
As a result I developed this
process of building my own brand of very durable, high quality
Only when satisfied with the
results and the high standards that I had set for Giant Squid mics I
opened this website.
Always looking for
improvements to Giant Squid Mics I am constantly seeking sources for
new parts and attempting to develop improved methods and design
configurations to make Giant Squid Microphones the best made and
the Net in their price range.
Some parts in a couple of
Giant Squid units were found in small, obscure industrial parts
catalogs and have to be special ordered from an overseas
distributor. These kind of high end parts give the edge of
durability and quality to Giant Squid products.
In its history Giant Squid
Audio Lab Microphones have been purchased by satisfied customers in
fields ranging from professional Radio Broadcast Reporters
to dance club Disc Jockeys, from professional stage musicians to
missionaries, and from DAT and Mini Disc audio collecting hobbyists
to computer notebook owners.
Giant Squid Audio Lab has
also provided microphone technical advise and design recommendations to
Sasquach (also known as Bigfoot) researchers who monitor a densely
forested section in the mountains of Tennessee.
