ShinyBox started selling an inexpensively priced ribbon microphone in 2004 that gave recording engineers an entry point into ribbon microphones without breaking the bank. In 2008, the company moved all assembly and production ribboning to it's Seattle facility, to bring a focus on quality of build, ensuring that every microphone was made with attention to detail, and quality engineering. Today, with it's electronics product line Made in USA, and ribbon assembly and repair facility, ShinyBox continues to focus on making great tools at affordable prices.
