Thought I was buying a specialty mic; instead got a workhorse!
by Doug from MarylandI have been very surprised with Avantone products. People tend to take them less seriously because they're not all that expensive; but the proof is in the mix. I had been wanting to experiment with ri... read more [+]bbon mics for a while, thinking they pretty much had special applications involving guitar cabinets and drums. But I have been blown away by how GOOD these babies sound on just about everything. Trumpet, cornet, trombone, saxes... the whole gamut of horns, have a very natural sound you can't get with a condenser. Vocals (especially male) have great warmth and character. Mic'ing a piano with a pair of CR-14s was a total surprise as well. And of course, the same old boring applications for guitar cabinets and drum overheads yield stellar results. This is my new favorite mic. close [-]

excellent affordable ribbon mic
by Matt Butler from NashvilleThis mic has a rich warm tone as you would expect from a ribbon. It has a pretty low noise floor for a ribbon too. You won't find a better sounding ribbon in this price range.
