"Hey man, love your product!" - Kyle Brandt - (A Light Within)
I found that methods used to achieve lo-fi vocal effects in the studio didn't translate well to live settings. After much trial and error I came up with a solution built from an acquired payphone.
After shows people were always asking me where I got my payphone mic and if they could buy it off me. At some point I figured it might be a good move to start selling them. Flagg Audio was born.
Since then my wife Kodi and I have been selling our musical offerings to musicians and engineers all over the world out of our Virginia home.

A: No. Flagg Mics are made from 100% new materials.
Q: Do Flagg Mics work well on other instruments?
A: Yes. They work great on wind instruments, guitar cabs, and percussion.
Q: Can Flagg Mics perform in high volume settings?
A: Yes. Flagg Mics will outperform even hypercardioid mics in terms of feedback rejection. They're also extremely cutting in a dense mix.
Q: How do Flagg Mics fit on a mic stand?
A: Flagg Mics can snap sideways into a Shure-style mic clip.
Q. Can Flagg Mics pair with other Vocal FX?
A: Yes. Flagg Mics tend to pair better with FX than traditional mics due to their inherent feedback reduction.
Q: Any live tips?
A: "Eat" the mic. Get up close, within one to no inches and sing normally. Set the gain based off this distance.
Q: Any recording tips?
A: Flagg Mics won't pickup the sound of the room you're recording in. For a more natural sense of space blend in some subtle reverb.
