Lives for gear

This year I borrowed 4 x BBC PGS ribbons
Made by BBC Research Dept for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth the II and FM Radio in the UK,1953.
Bronze construction and the prototype for STC/Coles 4038.
This was the mainstay for BBC Radio from the 50's to the 80's.
Delicious mikes with exceptional mid band and exciting ribbon presence.
Exception proximity ,up to 30".

However, need 80dB of gain ,and are perilous in wind and blast conditions.
Great fun though.
