Hi Recording.org community! I wanted to reach out to your collective wisdom! Is it possible/recommended to record classical instruments (I am a professional flutist) with both ribbons and condensers?? I have seen this in a couple of places eg. on the Royer website they have a recording of a flutist with a SF-24 and 2 Rode NT-6 omnis flanking on a stereo bar.
Royer's President and co-founder Rick Perrotta take you on a tour of their factory, providing a glimpse of every important stage of the manufacturing process, explaining how ribbon microphones are made.
Grammy-winning Classical Engineer Robert Friedrich gives us an in-depth look at the recording techniques used when recording "The Carnival Of The Animals" with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. Friedrich relied heavily on ribbon microphones to achieve the desired sound quality.

Hello again, just though I’d post a recent update on my quest to make re-ribboning a ribbon microphone easier.
This time up, a Ribbon Tuner (Tensioner) jig. This has interchangeable carriers for different ribbon microphone trusses. So far I’ve made Carriers for Rick’s (http://www.diyribbonmic.com/parts/) truss, in addition to carriers for an MXL R80 and an MXL R144 ribbon microphone. This way you can print one jig, and then use a carrier for your specific mic.
Just finished up another Instructable.
In my never ending quest for a high quality ribbon microphone in every studio locker (chicken in every pot), I designed a tool to help corrugate ribbons for ribbon microphones.
Using some crafting gears, I fashioned a 3-D printed frame, a stepper and Arduino and a footswitch to allow you to corrugate your ribbon microphone elements easily and consistently.
Please check it out.
Hello, this is a second in a series of Ribbon Mic upgrades. Thought you all might be interested.
Here I updated the truss to make the ribbon element floating (not tied to the truss and chassis ground) and swapped out the transformer. This required some 3D printed ribbon mounts and covers, which could also be done with 1mm thick PCB. I also 3D printed some little wire guides, so I didn’t have to sloppily glue the plus leads to the truss. Lastly, I made a re-ribbon jig for the truss, which makes it a whole ton easier to re-ribbon it.
Hello, I’m beginning my personal little crusade in the Ribbon Mic arena.
To start, I’ve created an Instructable, to upgrade an MXL 990 condenser mic with a ribbon element from http://www.diyribbonmic.com/parts
I created some 3D printed parts to hold the ribbon element and transformer.
But I think one of the key things is I also created a 3D printed ribbon alignment jig. It makes it really easy to replace and re-ribbon the element.
