The $60,000 Ribbon Mic Shootout. We tried all of these microphones on electric guitar cabinets (Fender & Marshall), over drum kits, on saxophone, on acoustic guitar and in front of veteran voice actor Corey Burton. We even recorded a podcast afterword to summarize some of what we heard.
Unidirectional ribbon microphones are so different in design, sound, and application that we decided to stage a followup comparison.
