Sound Shark parabolic microphones are manufactured in the United States by Sound Shark Audio, the consumer products division of Klover Products, Inc. which was founded by Paul Terpstra and Patrick Santini.
Who We Are

Paul has over 35 years of experience in engineering and product design. He has operated an engineering consulting company called Innalytical Solutions since 2004. Paul provided engineering services to Patrick’s companies for many years.
In 2018, Paul, and his wife Diane, attained full ownership of Klover Products.
The Klover MiK 09 was introduced at the NAB convention.
Audio engineer David Grundtvig began using the Klover MiK 09 for broadcast of NBA basketball games.
Will Crocket, a photography consultant, agreed to test one of these parabolic collectors. Will was the first to suggest that we offer a more user-friendly version of the product for the non-technical videographer. This suggestion led to the creation of the Sound Shark.
Sound Shark Audio was created as a separate division of Klover Products, Inc.
