Jan 9 2012 - Just received my basic contact and buffered XLR hydrophone in the mail today and I can't stop playing with them! With correct placement and careful handling you can keep the extraneous noise to a minimum and record some amazing things! Excellent sound and very fast shipping, thanks so much.


Nov 14 2011 - I received the Factory-Shielded Piezo Film Tab Contact Microphone from you recently. I installed it below the bridge on a violin, using a wood wedge.

It seems to perform very well, sounds natural, and can be plugged into an ordinary guitar amplifier without additional pre-amp. So far it seems like a real winner.

Thanks very much.

Sept 17 2011 - Just received two of your buffered pickups (one with alligator clip). The pickups are wonderful, high gain, extremely low noise and great sound. Thank you very much,


July 11 2011 - I received the contact microphone in 7 days. I tried it and the sound is wonderful. Low noise at high gain amplification. Alligator clip helps to put it in some instruments. Thanks a lot!


May 11 2011 - Very prompt response. I wanted to change my order right after I placed it because of some technical reasons. They refund the same day and processed my new order. The package arrived just on time! I am going to buy one more mic with them!! Very good!


Apr. 23 2011 - Just received the Mini Contact Stereo Set with Alligator Clips. Very nice and precise mics. Excellent quality and very fast shipping to Europe. Thank you.


Apr. 08 2011 - I just wanted to say that I received my (stereo condenser) hydrophone yesterday - promptly took it down to lake ontario, threw it in, and was instantly amazed. This thing is going to see a lot of use.

Apr. 04 2011 - Excellent frequency response & quality wiring. Captures ethereal and unearthly frequencies from dead storage devices and other analogue emitters of sounds long since departed. Recommended.


Apr. 03 2011 - Purchased a basic contact microphone and it works great. I use it taped to my throat when recording vocals alongside another tube condenser mic and it adds a really great sound. Will definitely be buying more.

Mar. 28 2011 - hi liane, nice to see that you're still making mics and doing well. the contacts i bought from you years ago are still going strong! cheers,


Oct. 30 2010 - Hi! I just wanted to say thank you for sending me the contact mic I ordered so fast. And it sounds great too! :) So thanks and keep up the good work!


Oct. 12 2010 - I just used the Buffered XLR with the built-in preamp for a solo set. It delivers a remarkably rich acoustic range I ordinarily would not expect from the average Piezo mic. Thank you for the fine line of Cold Gold products. I will be ordering more!


Sept. 27 2010 - I've been using homemade contact mics in performance for years. If I had known what a leap in quality and endurance the cold gold mic would have been, I woulda jumped on that noise from the beginning. Worth the exorbitant overnight shipping cost I had to pay in my dire need. Liane was most cooperative and the transaction was accomplished gracefully. Most high recommendations. Totally fulfilling. Awesome product. This is where I go now for all noise-making needs.

April 30 2010 - Excellent quality product! I got my basic contact microphone in the mail promptly, and have taped it to the soundboard of my piano. I'm running it into my full stack bass amp and pedal board, and I love the range of tones I can get.

- Garrett

April 20 2010 - Great site and shipping! Great stuff for great sounds! So great Thanks!

- O. Hug

April 12 2010 - The quality of the recordings from these sweet doo dads is simply amazing!

I started a project earlier this year to better understand the underwater sound profiles of my fishing spinner components. This application was probably on the ragged edge of Liane's customer set, but it didn't matter and Liane's equipment worked great! I now know much more about how the wire, fishing blade types, glass, plastic and metal components react in concert with each other to let me make choices in spinner design.

I'm very happy with the recordings and they're an interesting and entertaining addition to my website!

Liane's help was extremely influential in a making this one of the best projects I've undertaken this year!

You've won a long term customer that I recommend and reference. Thanks Cold Gold and Best of Luck growing the business!

- John Delaney, Fish Creek Spinners

March 16 2010 - Big thanks for the stereo contact mics which arrived yesterday, I tested them last night and am very pleased with the quality. Cheers!

- Weave

March 15 2010 - I have been making musical instruments for over 20 years and have just discovered your wonderful company. My first order came promptly and the quality was great. I am now tripling my order. Thanks for the great service.

- S. Catania

Oct. 7 2009 - Hey Liane, Thanks for the order and again for your specific suggestions. The construction quality is excellent, and presentation is lovely. Thanks too for the custom jack connector!
