Microphone manufacturer Shure announced its acquisition of Crowley and Tripp Ribbon Microphones from Soundwave Research Laboratories of Ashland, Mass. Under a definitive agreement, Shure owns all intellectual property, microphone process equipment, product designs, and other important assets relating to the Crowley and Tripp line. Company officials said Shure will manufacture ribbon microphones in its Wheeling, Ill., facility using the Roswellite shape-memory acoustic ribbon material developed by Soundwave Research.

"Ribbon microphones have always been prized for their warm sound quality, but older designs are delicate, which has limited their applications," said Scott Sullivan, senior director of global product management for Shure, in a statement. "With the acquisition of the Crowley and Tripp product line and their Roswellite ribbon technology, Shure is extending the use of ribbon microphones to the stage in addition to their use in the studio."

Shure will manufacture ribbon microphones exclusively in the United States. The company will also assume responsibility for ongoing service and support for existing owners of Crowley and Tripp ribbon microphone products.
