Ribbom microphone RM BIV-1

In two years time the technology of making ribbon microphones had been worked out and the result has surpassed all expectations! The ones who know what kind of microphone it is will certainly say that a ribbon microphone is a studio microphone. Even though it seems to be not enough of high frequencies, the reality of the transmission of the timbre can not be compared to any other microphone. Many beginner sound engineers do not even know what it is. Although recently almost all firms have in their line-up a "ribbon" pattern.


I would not insist that this is a vocal microphone, rather than instrumental, but it is perfect for the baritone. Using a pop-filter is obligatory! It also sounds very good on strings, winds, percussion, xylophone and as overheads. And guitar amps sound fantastic!!!










Ribbon microphone;

Size of the ribbon: 60 mm x 5 mm;

In the microphones is used a transformer,

that was developed on an amorphous alloy magnetic core,

by analogy with the well-known brands such as Samar Audio and Lundahl.

More sensitivity! More HF!


It is also possible to select a stereo couple of RM BIV-1, which allows to use them in MS and Blumleine (XY) systems.

The selected pair can be equipped with a very convenient stereo plank:

To expand the sound of the RM-BIV1 microphones completely and improve the signal / noise characteristics, we recommend you purchase our J-Decor preamp. You can read more about J-Decor and listen to audio records using this preamp here:

You can also order a microphone with a shok mount.

          Ribbon Stereo Microphone RM BIV-2

A stereo version was created because of the great desire to use MS and Blumleine (XY) recording systems. It is also possible to select a stereo pair of microphones of two RM BIV-1, which allows use them in MS and Blumleine (XY) systems.
