Finally, there is a ribbon microphone that sounds fantastic, does what is expected, and doesn't cost a fortune! This Voodoo microphone is phantom powered and is not as delicate as your typical vintage ribbon. By design they are more sensitive, but this ribbon is capable of handling high SPL's, making it great for guitar cabinets, vocals, and even as a drum overhead. The figure-8 pickup pattern is great for getting a good room tone or for picking up multiple singers at once. Overall a great versatile mic that sounds amazing on acoustic or electric guitar!
