Bamboo is our new line of ribbon microphones, featuring a passive ribbon microphone called Bamboo, and two active ribbon microphones, White Bamboo and Black Bamboo.
The three ribbon microphone models are designed to offer maximum sound quality and much-improved durability compared to traditional ribbon microphones.
All models are handmade in Spain with resistant, modern products that meet our demanding environmental requirements. The particular frequency response and different harmonic content of each model give them a lot of versatility as well as enormous artistic and technical potential.
This new line of microphones of the so-called “ribbon”, based its operation on a transducer built from a pair of high-power magnets (the most powerful magnets on the planet) flanking a corrugated aluminum tape of 1.8 microns thick. The result of this process is high sound quality and a very low noise level.
In addition, the Bamboo range incorporates a new multidirectional (anti-pop) windbreak system with several strategically distributed layers, much more efficient and stable than those currently available on the market. They also feature a continuous mass electronics system that minimizes the noise floor and eliminates intermediate mechanical elements.
As a culmination to all the technical deployment mentioned above, the Bamboo ribbon microphones perform the amplification stage using transformers of the prestigious Lundahl® brand, synonymous with quality and durability.
Black Bamboo's Technical Specifications
Black Bamboo is our active ribbon microphone, powered by phantom and with a very low noise floor. Its electronic design, in addition to providing higher gain than its White Bamboo sibling, offers a dense sound, with more body and presence, and with a slight de-esser effect. Its built-in Lundahl® transformer together with the combination of the highest-quality electronic components and technology, makes its sound immediately adaptable to the highest recording standards, making it the most versatile ribbon microphone in the entire range.
We want to take care of all the details of each product, so for this range, we have opted for a packaging consisting of an elegant and resistant box with bamboo finishes, in addition to another recycled cardboard box that facilitates its transport wherever you want. Inside, you will find a recycled cotton bag to protect the microphone during studio or live sessions. It includes a clamp.
The Bamboo range is part of our TIERRA GREEN initiative, in which we plant a tree for every 5 units of the ribbon microphone line.
