Nady Announces RSM-8A Active Ribbon Microphone
Nady Systems has announced the RSM-8A, their latest ribbon microphone. The new RSM-8A has the warmth and natural sound of a classic Nady large ribbon mic plus the higher gain of conventional studio microphones and the selectable features offered by proven low-noise FET active circuitry and transformer output. The RSM-8 is ideal for recording studio vocals, acoustic instruments, strings, horns, orchestral/choral groups, ambient instrument audio, and many live sound applications.
The RSM-8A has low-tension 50mm long, 2-micron thick aluminum ribbon (velocity) design for characteristic “large, mellow” ribbon audio reproduction with smooth, natural extended low and high ends. Other features include: Over 40db higher gain than most non-active ribbon microphones so easier to use with any mic mixer or preamp; -10dB pad and Low Cut filter selector switches for attenuation and elimination of stage rumble; unmatched fast, accurate transient response, ultra-high 165dB SPL capability and overall stunning realism; Figure-8 audio directional (pickup) pattern for front and rear sides, extended sweet spots, increased off-axis high-frequency response on sides, with decreased treble and lower audio levels above and below on-axis. The RSM-8A is manufactured with the finest materials, machined housing and advanced internal shockmount construction for structural integrity and rugged reliability.
The Nady RSM-8A will be available shortly; no pricing has been announced. More information on the Nady RSM-8A Active Ribbon Microphone.
