Samson VR88 - Velocity Ribbon Microphone
Special Order

Delivers Classic Ribbon Sound

The Samson VR88 Velocity Ribbon Microphone provides you with the traditional sound of a ribbon mic, but with enhanced precision and sensitivity, thanks to modern active electronics. Utilizing a low-mass, 2.5-micron aluminum ribbon suspended in a neodymium field, the VR88 imbues your recordings with a pleasant, silky-smooth quality that's ideal for capturing warm, natural-sounding vocals, acoustic instruments, and more. While the VR88 excels on subdued sources, it's also robust enough to handle loud guitar amps and drum overhead duties. Ribbon microphones are enormously popular here at Sweetwater, and the Samson VR88 Velocity Ribbon Microphone provides you with the classic sound that only a ribbon can deliver.

Samson VR88 Velocity Ribbon Microphone Features at a Glance:
  • Low-mass, 2.5-micron aluminum ribbon delivers classic sound
