Don't know who makes 'em, but Acoustic Zen Adagio uses them, to great effect I might add...   :D

We had ours specially made through Pen Shien Industrial in Taipei.  It took several months to get them.  If you order 500pcs or more and prepay they will do them for you.

Brian, you may want to clarify that you do still have them available for customer repairs.  I'm sure this must be true since you are still offering models with spiral ribbons.  I just don't want anyone reading this to think that you don't properly support your products, because I know that your customer support has to be good to have remained in business for 300 years, or whatever it's been.

Has anyone attempted to contact this Corporation (FST Tweeters?) 
I (for one) would very much like a source for spiral ribbon repairs.

Aurum Cantus might be close to what is needed but as far as

Someone must still be making these tweeters.  Genesis Tech and Legacy Audio both still build speakers with spiral ribbons.

I don't know anything about this company, or their sales requirements, but they advertise spiral ribbon tweeters.

Also, Ali Express sometimes carries similar ribbons.  Though, they're not always listed.
