Ribbon microphones are based on an old transducer technology that originated from the early days of professional audio recording. What makes a Ribbon microphone is an actual metal ribbon that vibrates from sound pressure in a way that is very similar to the human ear. Thus, Ribbon mics are known for their pristine, natural, and nuanced sounding recordings.

Ribbon microphones often have a figure-8 pattern which allow it to pick up sound on either side of the capsule, though, ribbon microphones can also be found in cardioid and some other patterns.

You can capture brilliant audio from many instruments and sources with a ribbon microphone, but it is important to always be sure the audio source is not too high in decibels for the ribbon mic. Ribbons are made much more durable than they once were, but they are still relatively fragile compared to other types of microphones.

Recordings for solo artists such as pianists, string players, brass, and woodwinds, will be captured beautifully on a ribbon microphone and sit exactly in the sonic sweet spot of the ribbon. Electric and amplified instruments can also be captured nicely on a ribbon mic but excessive volume can quickly cause damage to the ribbon microphone. Recordings in front of a string ensemble, brass ensemble, or choral group, can sound lush and detailed with a ribbon microphone which could utilize a figure 8 pattern to capture the room ambience as well.
