Product Description

The R 1 MKII is a high quality vintage style ribbon microphone. It offers the unique and natural sound that has been available in classical microphones like the RCA 44 and 77 that are still used to make high quality recordings today, after almost 70 years.

The R1 Mk2 is very well suited for the recording of most sound sources like vocals, acoustic instruments, strings, horns, orchestras and choral groups and many live sound applications.


  • The unmatched natural and musical sound of a classical ribbon microphone.
  • A stunning realism with the feeling of “being- there”.
  • The typical large and mellow ribbon sound quality with a very smooth top end and an extended low end.
  • A fast and life-like transient reproduction. - An ultra-high SPL capability, 160 dB SPL (1% THD @ 1000 Hz) and a very good sensitivity for a ribbon microphone.
  • A Figure-8 directional pattern for wide sweet spots both in the front and in the back of the microphone. Zero spots towards the sides.
  • A 50 mm long ribbon made of 2 microns thick aluminium foil.
  • An internal shock mount for the ribbon and magnet assembly.
  • A removable microphone cable and a soft trans- port case
  • Manufactured of the finest materials for a great performance and long-term reliability.
