I have a very cool video for you today. We´ll do a shootout of 4 different high-quality ribbon mics.
Thanks to our friends at Vintage King for lending us these beautiful mics to try out:
We are going to test all of these mics on electric and acoustic guitars.
In the process, I´ll also explain when and how I would use ribbon mics in a recording situation:
Ribbon mics are a very underused breed of microphones by home-studio owners, but they get used by professional recording engineers and producers all the time. This is your chance to learn when and how to use them.
At the end of the shootout, we´re going to listen to and discuss the different qualities of each of these ribbons, and I´ll mention shortly in which recording situation I would consider them a great fit.
Check out the video here:
I hope you´ve enjoyed this shootout and learned something along the way.
You can download the shootout recordings and have a closer listen for yourself HERE.
Which of these mics was your favourite? Please comment and let me know your thoughts below.
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
