Coles Ribbon Mics Marks 40

Coles Ribbon Mics Marks 40

Coles Electroacoustics Ribbon Microphones celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Colin Beanland, who started the company, said, “It’s been a great run for 40 years. Manufacturing the BBC-designed Coles 4038 studio ribbon microphones and Coles 4101b commentator’s lip mics has been an important component of our business.”
He added that the company’s design for its new 4040 Ribbon Mic has received acclaim from customers and reviewers. “Our hope is that it will become as popular as the 4038 studio ribbon mic,” he said.
Beanland’s son, Steve Beanland, now runs the factory, as the senior Beanland says he is “semi-retired.”
