DESCRIPTION Specifications

Golden Age Project R1 Active MK3 - Active Ribbon Microphone

R1-MK3, ACTIVE Ribbon Microphone, Golden Age Golden Age Project
with FREE mic cable

R1 Active MKIII ribbon microphone offers the smooth high end and extended lows that make ribbon mics so popular with recording engineers and producers. Thanks to its active circuitry, which includes a bipolar/FET discrete low-noise amplifier, it offers higher-than-expected output for a ribbon mic.

The ribbon in the R1 Active MKIII is 50 mm long and 2 microns thick. The mic is designed to provide fast and life-like transient reproduction, and can handle sound pressure levels up to 150 dB SPL.

As is typical for a ribbon mic, it has a figure-8 polar pattern, which means it picks up primarily from the front and rear of the capsule and rejects sounds coming from the sides. You can use this to your advantage in the studio to help minimize bleed when two or more sources are recording in the same room. The R1 Active MKIII is well-suited for electric guitar, vocals, strings, horns, acoustic instruments, orchestras, choral groups, and many live-sound applications.

A soft transport case and an XLR mic cable are included.

Great mic March 14, 2015
Reviewer: Abram Wuliger from Durham, NC United States  
it is the best mic I have used yet just worried I might break it with it being super sensitive but other then that it is great. Doesn't take much gain for it to work thought it was broken at first with the clicks it would make when I had I the gain half way.
