"How It's Made: Ribbon Microphone"

Obviously, my daily workspace involves microphones.  They run from the hard-working and ugly to the sublimely beautiful.  This is definitely in the latter category.  There's nothing like handcrafted gear which is designed to be used - probably one of the things which draws me to handcrafted bicycles...

Ribbon mics are reasonably rare creatures, requiring a bit more care and feeding than your typical modern large-diaphragm or shotgun mic.
