I will come back to you directly by email.
The TM88 project was something I did out of interest, to produce highest possible quality true stereo recordings for demonstrating my consumer electronics products (the Orbitsound T12 and a new upcoming product, the T14). Commercially, the mic is a complete loser! The number of enquiries has meant that it is not worth producing a commercial quantity of the mic…. I have a few prototypes that I use myself, but it’s unlikely that I will keep it in the catalogue for long.
Technically, I’m very happy with it; the sound is warm and intensely realistic….. neither of those attributes seems to be what’s required in today’s plastic pro-tools world! 😥
(I hasten to add, I’m not disheartened! I’ve been dealing with mics for years and have seen fashions come and go.)
