The VR88 Velocity Ribbon Microphone from Samson features a low mass, 2.5-micron aluminum ribbon suspended within an intense neodymium field, producing a warm and natural sound across its frequency range. The VR88's FET amplifier and transformer provide the high output and stabilized source impedance necessary for compatibility with any mic preamplifier.
