About

Ribbon microphones are known for their rich, warm sound and have been used to capture some of the most legendary recordings in history. The R144 ribbon microphone delivers a naturally organic sound with incredibly smooth characteristics. The R144 microphone has a figure-8 polar pattern which is perfect for recording guitars, vocals, brass, and any source material that benefits from the warm, silky characteristics of a ribbon mic. The R144 includes a black shock-mount, carrying case, and cleaning cloth. After you experience the R144 for the first time, it will expand your sonic palate and be a valuable addition to your microphone collection.

For those in need of overhead and room solutions for Drums/Strings/Pianos and more, pair 2 R144s to make a stereo pair that will add character to any setup.
