Ribbon Microphones offer exquisite attention to detail, without any harshness that sometimes comes from other microphones. Ribbons are a perfect choice when you want a specific instrument to sound warm and full in the track, without too much presence in the higher frequencies. This makes Ribbon Microphones ideal for miking acoustic guitars, miking banjo, miking ukulele, miking mandolin, or as overhead drum microphones. Models like the Royer 121, Cole 4038, and beyerdynamic m160 are in just about every pro recording studio's mic locker.

Ribbon Microphones tend to be much softer, warmer, and darker sounding than a condenser microphone, making them the perfect choice for an instrument with a lot of attack, such as Drums, Banjo, or Mandolin. Ribbons can take more EQ than a condenser without sounding brittle, so if more presence is needed at the end of the recording, use a plug-in or hardware EQ such as a Neve 1073 or API 550a to add in some top end.

Classic tones such as John Bonham’s huge drum sound, and Jimi Hendrix electric guitar were captured using Beyerdynamic m160 ribbon microphones.

Ribbon mics typically come in a figure-8 polar pattern. Use two of them together to easily achieve the Blumlein miking technique. Use them on drum overheads to capture a wide, warm representation of the cymbals and toms, but also capture ambiance of the room you are tracking in.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
James P.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
