James Sauter ribbon repair

Has anyone had their ribbons repaired by James Sauter, and if so were you pleased with the sound afterwards?
thanks

Re: James Sauter ribbon repair

Considering James is a "model maker" by trade....I am certain he can handle the task with aplomb! (I used to be a model maker myself....tremendous patience and craftsmanship to the Nth degree are a big part of the profession!) I will let others speak of his talents in this area though--

Re: James Sauter ribbon repair

I actually have some ribbons - play them everyday.

Some experts hints are were just wrong that they might get soggy outdoors in the humidity --
Nope, they play crisp and clear and another myth is debunked. The roof does heat to a million degrees everyday so that might be a factor.

Ribbons are -- good. My ears really like the tingles the highs can give and ribbons do that with ease. Mine are kinda crunched up and I look forward to hearing Gary's that are relaxed.

I think it would be a mistake to overlook a master of the ribbons -- DAVE S

Re: James Sauter ribbon repair

James rebuilt my ribbons right in front of me.
I've had them for over a year and I play them OBSCENELY LOUD every day,
biamped with a 400~seven.
The response curve on them is identical to the published curve.
He knows what he's doing.

I am of course not getting the inside joke. Many years ago I traded a broken set of platinum ribbons out with Dave Sauter. Now they are in need of repair. I sent an email to James@carveraudio.com a while back and got no response. Is one the father or the son?
I am very confused.

Do not be confused.

And James is the little baby, and the owner of this site.

You can PM both of them, but they can be slow in getting back to you. as they both have so many projects on the go.
