RSM-1... Ribbon?

  • 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.

    I have a RSM-1 Nady that, I thought, was a ribbon mic. I'm new at all this and I learned in audio class that a ribbon can be broken if you just sneeze on it too hard. Well, this mic has taken a beating in my studio/bedroom and it just keeps on going. Can someone explain this to me?

    An RSM-1 is a ribbon mic.

    Older ribbons were sensitive, but the newer generations of them are getting much tougher.

    I've read of some people even using them as bass drum mics.
