Originally used for radio broadcasts, ribbon microphones are widely known to give an accurate and vintage sound to a recording, especially for acoustic instruments such as violins, acoustic guitars and vocals. Although they are nowhere near as fragile as they were when first invented, ribbon mics should still be handled and used with care as they can be overpowered. There are, however, ribbon mics that have been designed specifically for use with guitar amps, such as the Sontronics Delta.
