Ribbon Ceremony

In order to flatten out the spikiest high frequencies, ribbon microphones were invented with strong magnetic fields to provide a higher natural resonant frequency. Built with an aluminum ribbon and neodymium field that produce a warm, natural response from every part of the range, the Samson VR88 Velocity Ribbon Microphone is a bi-directional microphone that helps smooth out even the harshest sibilance.

Go Figure

As the microphone features a Figure-8 pickup pattern, it picks up your source audio from both the front and back, giving you more versatile recording options. To deliver consistently high output and stabilize source impedance, the VR88 is equipped with an FET amplifier and transformer. No matter if you’re setting up an acoustic guitar or simply singing straight into the mic, the high SPL rating lets you pick up what’s important. Finished off with die-cast construction, a shock mount, and a protective carry case, the Samson VR88 Velocity Ribbon Microphone gives you a deluxe mic with a wide range of applications.
