For today's DAW based recording ribbon mic's are the answer for warm fat harmonics, this mic. It's a figure 8 like most ribbons and has bass rolloff switch on the back.THis mic sounds very fat on my voice and very clean, this is a low distortion mic. I figure it will sound amazing on guitar cabinets, with it's printed ribbon design it can take the level. Soon after their introduction, the Fostex mics were being called Printed Ribbon Microphones, so fondly did their warmth resemble the beautiful but frail ribbon mics of yesteryear.
The reference to printed is to one patented aspect of Fostex RP Technology, wherein the voice coil is etched directly onto the diaphragm. But the reference to ribbon carried a negative connotation regarding durability. However, Fostex RP Mics have a history which verifies a ruggedness quotient equal to, or better than, the very best dynamics.
