The unmatched sound of a classic ribbon (velocity) mic — rich, warm and musical Perfect for close miking of guitar amps and cabinets, brass instruments, strings, piano, percussion, vocals and orchestral ambiance.

Unique, compact shape for easy, unobtrusive mic placement anywhere. Low-tension 45mm long, 2-micron thick aluminum ribbon design with typical “large, mellow” ribbon audio reproduction Smooth, natural extended low and high ends, and detailed, realistic mids Unparalleled overall stunning realism with fast, accurate transient response, ultra-high dynamic range and >135 dB SPL capability Utmost versatility in dialing in desired sound by varying mic placement.

Figure-8 audio directional (pickup) pattern for both front and rear side, with extended sweet spots (as compared to large diaphragm condenser mics). Can be used with a second RSM-5 for individual recording volume control of 2 separate sources by placing each source in the principal axis of one mic and the off-axis null of the other.

Manufactured with the finest materials — a machined housing with advanced internal shockmount construction for the highest structural integrity and rugged reliability Supplied with a mic clip and leatherette pouch.
