What Is the Ribbon Microphone? ​

- May 14, 2018-

The Ribbon Microphone is a wavy metal foil strip that is usually made of aluminum and placed between two poles of a magnet. When the metal thin film is vibrated by sound, signals are generated due to electromagnetic induction. The Ribbon Microphones are once the best and most expensive microphones in the early days. Due to the large size and thin fragility of aluminum foil, it is mainly used in professional studios today.
