VIN-JET Long Ribbon Microphone (Single)

Tap/Click to Enlarge

The Cascade VIN-JET ribbon microphone features a 2 7/16” long ribbon of aluminum suspended in the field of a pair of Neodymium rare earth permanent magnets. When the ribbon is exposed to sound it vibrates within the magnetic field and a tiny current is induced in the ribbon.


This current  is amplified to produce sound. What makes ribbon microphones so incredibly sensitive and accurate is that the signal comes directly from the material that senses the sound; nothing is lost in translation. The result is the most  intimate, warm, and articulate sound produced by any type of microphone. Ribbon microphones are an excellent choice for recording guitar cabinets, drum overheads and vocals.


Neodymium rare earth permanent magnet  is a new kind of magnetic material developed in the 1980s with excellent magnetic characteristics in terms of a high-energy product, high coercive force etc. It is the strongest and most powerful magnetic material up to now and regarded as "The King of Magnets".


The Cascade VIN-JET long ribbon microphone is quickly becoming the new go-to choice for home and professional recording studios alike. The VIN-JET is an exceptional value that competes with ribbon microphones that cost many times over. The VIN-JET is available from our site as well as from one of our fine dealers. The VIN-JET features Evidence Audio Wire and an open grill (no interior grill screening has been added) ensuring you of an open and detailed sound.
