Beside the quality active alternatives like the AEA R-122V/R-122 and AEA A440 I find the Coles 4038 to be pretty quiet with a low noise preamp. It's very well shielded from picking up external hum/RFI and has strong magnets with good output for a ribbon. But like mentioned here; in some delicate situations a ribbon is just a stupid mic choice.
