Golden Age Project R1 Mk2 - Ribbon Microphone


R1-MK2, Ribbon Microphone, Golden Age

The Golden Age Project R1 MKII ribbon microphone offers characteristic ribbon performance for a surprisingly affordable price. It gives you the smooth high end and extended lows that make ribbon mics so popular with recording engineers and producers.

Outfitted with a ribbon that's 50 mm long and 2 microns thick, the R1 MKII provides fast and life-like transient response, and can handle extremely high sound pressure levels—up to 160 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 MKII is well-suited for electric guitar, vocals, strings, horns, acoustic instruments, orchestras, choral groups, and many live-sound applications.

The R1 MKII comes with a soft transport case and an XLR mic cable.
