The Making Of A Ribbon Microphone

If you ever wondered what was inside a ribbon mic, this segment from the How It's Made cable TV will not only show all the components, but how they're made and put together as well. It outlines the making of an AEA r44C, a modern version of the old RCA 44 that's so loved by brass players everywhere. Wes Dooley, founder of AEA, has done as much as anyone for keeping ribbon mics alive (with a big shout-out to David Royer and John Jennings of Royer Labs too), and AEA and Royer has helped bring them back from obscurity.

Unfortunately you have to wait through a 30 second commercial before the video begins, but it's worth it.
