Tierra Audio Black Bamboo Active Ribbon Microphone

Phantom powered ribbon microphone with a built-in Lundahl transformer featuring a dense sound, with strong body and presence, and with a slight de-esser effect

MFR# TABMB-003-001

Product Description

The Tierra Audio Black Bamboo is an active ribbon microphone, powered by phantom with a very low noise floor. Its electronic design, in addition to providing higher gain than its White Bamboo sibling, offers a dense sound, with more body and presence, and with a slight de-esser effect. Its built-in Lundahl transformer together with the combination of the highest-quality electronic components and technology providing sound immediately adaptable to the highest recording standards, making it the most versatile ribbon microphone in the entire range.

All Tierra Bamboo models are handmade in Spain with resistant, modern products that meet their demanding environmental requirements. The particular frequency response and different harmonic content of each provides significant versatility as well as enormous artistic and technical potential.

The Bamboo microphone's operation is based on a transducer built from a pair of high-power magnets (the most powerful magnets on the planet) flanking a corrugated aluminum tape of 1.8 microns thick. The result of this process is high sound quality and a very low noise level.

In addition, the Bamboo range incorporates a new multidirectional (anti-pop) windbreak system with several strategically distributed layers, much more efficient and stable than those currently available on the market. They also feature a continuous mass electronics system that minimizes the noise floor and eliminates intermediate mechanical elements.

As a culmination to all the technical deployment mentioned above, the Bamboo ribbon microphones perform the amplification stage using transformers of the prestigious Lundahl brand, synonymous with quality and durability.

Tierra have opted for a packaging consisting of an elegant and resistant box with bamboo finishes, in addition to another recycled cardboard box that facilitates its transport wherever you want. Inside, you will find a recycled cotton bag to protect the microphone during studio or live sessions plus a clamp for mounting.

The Bamboo range is part of Tierra's GREEN initiative, in which they plant a tree for every 5 units of the ribbon microphone line!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
