    This mic actually sounds better than the Golden Age Active Ribbon! It's silky smooth and takes EQ very well. As is the case with most passive ribbon mics, it needs a bit of gain...but nothing that a good preamp (especially something like the Cloudlifter or Fethead) can't handle. In fact, the R40 so…

  • A solid mic for the price but

    You need to make sure your preamp has enough gain. The more the better or your signal will be dull and weak. This is an amazing value for the money and is very mod-able. My only gripe is it doesn't come in a real case like the R144 does.
