What is a Ribbon Microphone?

As the name suggests, these microphones use a ribbon of very thin aluminium foil to electromagnetically capture the sound. this very delicate and responsive capsule design creates a distinctive microphone type, separate from normal dynamic mics. Ribbon mics offer a clear and transparent sound, and capture exceptional detail in the high frequency range. Also as a result of their design, ribbon mics are typically bi-directional.
