Beyerdynamic M160 Ribbon Microphone Repair

The Beyerdynamic M160 is a great sounding hyper cardioid ribbon microphone.  They employ a small geometry ribbon, with an acoustic chamber behind the ribbon that extends into the base of the microphone to alter the microphones pickup pattern.

I have spent many years working on Beyerdynamic ribbon microphones, and in this time have developed a replacement piston style ribbon modeled after the original.

In many cases, there is debris in the magnetic gap, which can take the form of flaking glue, or sometimes metal contamination.  In this example, flaking glue is preventing the ribbon from proper movement.  Unfortunately, in most cases the ribbon needs to be replaced in order to properly clean.
