Who has used a Shiny Box? Single-Channel Preamps

Who has used a Shiny Box?

I've been interested in getting a ribbon mic to add to the collect and I've heard a few good things about Shiny Box ribbons. Who here has used them and would say they were pleased with its performance?

I have a 46MXL (with the Luhandal Tranny) and I love it.


Super natural smooth and smoother...

Great for many things, including the best high "oooohhhhhh" mic you have ever heard.

I ruined the ribbon stupidly one time - Shiny Box fixed it for me free of charge despite it clearly being my fault.

Love it.

(also buy something like the Fethead inline preamp if you want to use this mic with a low gain / noisy preamp)

I've got most major ribbons, including ShinyBox in the Clipalator. I agree the Lundahl version has always been the standout in Jon's lineup. Great line and Jon is a stand up guy.
