LeWilson Ribbon WOW!

I bought to studio custom ribbons from Mark Lewilson.I checked them and compared with my AEA 44, pair of AEA84, pair of Royer R122 and RCA 74.
I was very surprised they are 99% of sound of AEA 44. Very colorful sound, with nice highs ...I LOVE RIBBONS and this is masterpiece !

Nice!

As a huge ribbon fan, I'd love to hear them.

I love the retro colour and style too - nice to have something different than the stock designs...

ooh, they look very sexy.

Is that a Beyerdynamic M500 in your ribbons pic?

One ribbon I really want to hear about firsthand is the Silvia Designs cardioid ribbon. It's not expensive, and I would consider taking a punt on one, but I'm not in the US. I'd love to hear some feedback about one. I'm a big fan of the "brighter" ribbons eg Beyer M500.

Why is this in the 'good news' section? It's a pretty straightforward gear topic.

...older thread, but due to a lack of info available on these mics, I have to ask...have you had an opportunity to use these for vocal tracking (female voices in particular)?...I've been having some success using some modded ribbons for this, but I'm very intrigued by Mark Wilson mics...
