But what about ceramic microphones, crystal microphones and ribbon microphones? They all co-existed in the 1930s and 1940s, and some types are, in one application or another, being used today. This month, we are talking ribbon microphones, honoring the debut of Shure KSM313 and KSM353 models. In addition to a little old-fashioned research, we prevailed upon Chad …
