Wes knows his ribbons!
AEA and Wes Dooley have been making some of the best sounding hand-made ribbons for decades now. This is the most versatile of all his mics that I've tried and the price is spot on. You can stick this right up close to a guitar cab for a montrous sound or use it on a delicate source such as percussion or harp. I do quite a bit of classical recording and on strings this is as good as it gets (in a proper acoustic space). Comes with a super nice case as well. USA made quality at a completely fair price. I plan to buy more AEA ribbons as budget allows.
