Golden Age Project R2 MKII Passive Ribbon Microphone


The R 2 MkII is quite different from the R 1 series of mics. It features a ribbon transducer with a shorter and more narrow ribbon. It is darker sounding than the R 1 series since the higher frequencies roll off earlier.

The R 2 MkII will do wonders with both clean and distorted electrical guitar, with brass instruments and more. It is delivered with a metal shock mount.

 

Main Features

The R2 Ribbon Mic features a shorter and narrow ribbon, resulting in a darker sound with the higher range rolled off earlier for a unique, atmospheric tone. Its ribbon and magnet assembly are internally shock-mounted, which cuts down on handling noise and structure-borne rumble.

This vintage-style ribbon microphone is brought to the modern era with a wide pickup pattern, made using the finest materials and components. The result is exceptional audio fidelity and a highly unique tonal character that is great for horns, electric guitars and more. The full-bodied mellow-like sound provides a fast and natural transient reproduction with an extremely high SPL capability of 137 dB SPL for maximum flexibility.
