I know that a majority of the microphones which existed back in the 1950's were ribbon microphones and me liking vintage equipment, I had to have one. I use this microphone mainly for spoken word applications, but have used it for singing as well with great results. You do have to be careful though as I broke my first one by lightly banging it while on tis stand and it never worked properly ever again after that!
