Today I finished re-ribboning my giant 1930s Siemens Ribbon Mic (see previous posts) and it burst into life for the first time in at least 40 years. Here is a very short clip of it’s first words! So pleased with my handiwork, as I never really thought I would manage to get it working! Aluminium foil 2 microns thick is a real pig to work with!!
Will post some proper recordings with this mic quite soon.
