In this issue:
Gefell Updates + New Price List for 2019
Website updates - we have been updating the Gefell section of the Sound-Link website recently.  All the detailed product pages of the Gefell microphones are now up and running; more photographs will be added during the coming weeks, but there is now a lot of detail there including polar diagrams, frequency curves and data sheets.
New Price List - After keeping prices the same for over 7 years, Microtech Gefell have now issued a new price list valid from the 1st January 2019.
The increases have been kept to a minimum and Sound-Link has absorbed some of the increase to keep it as small as possible - in fact a few items have actually reduced in price as Gefell have looked closely at the actual manufacturing costs.
Sound-Link will honour the existing price list for all orders placed before the 31st December this year.
The new 2019 price list is on the website HERE

The "Special Edition" microphones, announced in the September issue of "Monitor Input", are only available until the end of 2018 (the 90th anniversary of the company Georg Neumann founded in 1928).  Each "Special Edition" microphone has an anniversary medal on the body and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.  Also, any "Special Edition" microphone purchased from Sound-Link or an official UK dealer will entitle the purchaser to a special 90th anniversary pin badge (the same as the one on the microphone.

So, if you would like one of these "Special Edition" microphones please don't delay.

Grandads of the Atlantic
John Willett is proud that his cousin, Peter Ketley (on the right), is currently rowing in the Talisker Atlantic Challenge and, if they finish, he will be the oldest man to row the Atlantic.  His rowing partner is Neil Young and both of them were in The Parachute Regement (2.Para) in their younger days.
If you would like to follow them and/or donate, their website is HERE.
At the time of writing they have been rowing for over a week and are running 3rd in the pairs race.
