Make Yourself A Ribbon Microphone

January 12, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“As studio-quality home-recording equipment has become cheaper over the years, a good microphone — a key component of a bedroom setup — has remained prohibitively expensive for many amateurs. Ribbon mics are widely considered among the best microphones, but they can easily cost thousands of dollars.

So it was no small boon when, over the last decade, a crop of cheap, Chinese-made ribbon mics appeared on the U.S. market. Suddenly the landscape for music engineers on a budget was more inviting. And while the quality of these microphones is predictably questionable, a handful of tinkerers have found that small modifications to these imports can exponentially improve their quality, thus shrinking the price tag for a comparable mic by a factor of 10.”
