Coles 4038 ribbon mic? See what Jack White has to say!


We greatly admire Jack’s talent and his quest to preserve the authenticity, the true spirit of music. He is a genuine artist of a now very rare kind and a gifted multi-instrumentalist. We have seen him playing the blues on an upright piano and it gave us the goose bumps! He’s the real deal and we take note of the tools he chooses to achieve his sound.

The Coles 4038 certainly has a big part in creating the impression of a true vintage recording (along with the tape recorder).

It is truly an amazing mic and also currently the most in-demand ribbon in our inventory. (Though the RCA 44A and RCA 77DX bring their very own magic to the table)

Drop us a line or call to reserve. You’ll be happy you did!
