Up for sale is my beautiful unique "Grado" based on a Martin Custom Audio full woody.

- Driver has been subjectively upgraded to a Turbulent X driver.
- Gimbals and headband are custom made out of aluminum and leather.
- One thing to note, the gimbal is just held on with pressure, a small cap of some sort could/should be added, but it never caused me any issues.
- Cable is braided silver plated OCC wire with wooden cable split and 4 pin balanced XLR.
- Pads are official grado G cushions.

Buyer is responsible for actual shipping cost.

What lovely custom Grado's. Did you do the gimbals yourself or source them from somewhere?

Thanks a lot! I had the gimbals and headband custom made from a redditor who works in a CNC shop, he did an amazing job! :) .

Who built the cups and installed the drivers? Also do you know if there's been any dampening installed on the drivers within the headphone housing?

Hey, thanks for the interest. The cups were made by Martin Custom Audio, drivers replaced by me, there is some residue of the original dampening material that I transferred to the new driver but it is such a tight fit that It was heavily compressed and it is best not to consider it.
