Patented Offset Ribbon Technology The R-121's proprietary offset ribbon transducer (Patent # 6,434,252) is the first of its kind, positioning the ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side of the microphone. This arrangement gives the ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full frequency response during high SPL recordings. It's an integral piece
Features: High SPL Capabilitie. No internal active electronics to overload or produce distortion up to maximum SPL rating. Extremely low residual noise. Ribbon element is not affected by heat or humidity. Absence of high frequency phase distortion. Equal sensitivity from front or back of element. Consistent frequency response regardless of distance.
