Ribbon Microphones

 
Add extra levels of isolated detail, tonal sensitivity, rich warmth and darkness, and EQ-friendly response to your recordings - a Ribbon Microphone from American Musical Supply is a wonderful tool to add to your mic collection! Before tube microphones and modern solid-state dynamic microphones, it was the Ribbon Microphone that reigned supreme in both live and recording applications. Constructed to house a very thin metal ribbon (most commonly made of aluminum) suspended in a magnetic field, a Ribbon mic will help show off the essence of vocals, acoustic piano, acoustic guitar, drum overheads, strings, woodwinds, and even a classic, vintage-inspired flavor for electric guitars. These mics have very specific guidelines for operation, so when you take care of them, they will be sure to take care of you and reward your recordings!
