Ribbon Microphone Shootout!

  • Royer ribbon microphones - Why?

    Simply put, when you put a quality ribbon mic on an instrument, voice, or other sound source, what you hear on playback is closer to real sound in nature than with any other kind of microphone.

    Just came across this:

    The $60,000 Ribbon Mic Shootout | recording hacks

    Very comprehensive shootout, well done and well presented.

    One heads-up: When you get to the pages containing the audio samples, each sample remains unlabeled until you scroll down and click on the tab that says "Identify the mics", then the make & model & photo of each mic will appear adjacent to the audio sample.

    Lots of manufacturers have entered the ribbon mic field, and I'm a huge ribbon fan, always seeking to add to my collection. So many mics, so little loot!
