Fisher phantom powered ribbon mic - World's First Phantom Powered Ribbon Microphone

Here's an end-on and a side view of the Fisher mic prior to reribboning. The width of the ribbon is too wide relative to the gap, and is skewed.

Adjusting the tension via the support rods is tricky and the more you pull up the closer the ribbon edge is to the gap. Fisher made and sold a number of these microphones, some which were prized by David Hancock and passed on to Micha Schattner. The supply voltage is 48VDC and this one was made around 1975.
