Default Planar ribbons for sale

Hi Guys,


I am based in South Africa Cape Town I wonder if anyone would be interested in buying my planar magnetic ribbons I manufacture. They are 40 Long 5 segment 18mm wide laminated to 6 micron mylar and 9 micron alum foil its a similar ribbon to the Apogee Centaur major ribbon. The impedance is 6 ohms once stacked in series. The price that I have in mind is 100USD for a pair this includes shipping via our local international postal service or 70USD without shipping. They really sound great iv pushed them down to 400hz comfortably 3rd order BTW.


Brian

I am keen to play around with your ribbons. I am in Amanzimtoti. ZAR1050 is reasonable. Have you made any frequency response plots?

Hi Nico,

I grew up in Umkomaas so I know exactly where you are LOL... I have not plotted the new ribbon design but on a basic RTA it looks good and starts to roll off between 12k and 15k. I was fortunate to own the Apogee Diva and have a very good idea of how the midrange and tweeter sound. Naturally the ribbon can be influenced by pole pieces structure ETC when plotted. I am willing to send you a free pair but I would need feedback on the forum as im confident what you hear you will be very satisfied. I have tried many types of foils ETC and this one really works exceptionally well!! I can assist you what I found works in terms of frame,s pole pieces ETC.



Regards


Brian

Hi Brian

I am very interested.

Do you have any idea as to what freight to Adelaide, South Australia would be?
Due to the size and weight, I suspect that surface freight would be the most economical

Kind Regards

George.
