Ribbon Microphones

Achieve a classic, warm vintage sound with Sound Productions’ assortment of ribbon microphones. A mainstay design since the birth of microphone technology, ribbon mics are constructed with a super-thin ribbon of electrically-conductive material (usually metal such as aluminum) placed between the poles of a magnet. As sound waves vibrate the ribbon mic, the resulting electromagnetic induction produces voltage.

This is a spectacular studio mic. Ribbon mics deliver ultra-natural sound from vocals and both acoustic and electronic instruments. Singers sound their absolute best. Radio show discussions, podcasts, and live streams make it sound like the listeners are in the room with the presenters. Instruments—including drums—enjoy immense low-end while experiencing a high-frequency roll-off…so recordings capture the same sound spectrum as the human ear.

Ribbon mics are characterized by their warm, smooth sound, making them a great mic choice for capturing vocals and instruments. Their bidirectional pickup pattern means they capture sound equally well from both sides of the mic (figure-8 polar pattern), although some models can be configured to capture different polar patterns such as cardioid.
