    That's a great bargain! Congrats!
    I love ribbons, they are fussy and need to be stored correctly, and they also can't handle a lot of spl, but what a cool sound!
    I have a low (baritone) vocal range as well, and there's just something about how my ribbon (Cascade Victor) reacts to it, that little presence in the frequency range suits it just right, and the low end is superb.
    Speaking of that, I think in Warren's interview with Dave Jerden, he recalls that Zappa's vocal mic of choice was an old ribbon.

    I have not heard the ART in person, but many swear by it, it's real bargain with all those features, comparatively speaking.
