Superlux R102 Aluminum Ribbon Microphone
The R102 is an active aluminium ribbon microphone designed for the recording studio. The features the high sensitivity of a condenser microphone yet exhibits the smoother frequency response and excellent transient response of a ribbon microphone. The speed response of a ribbon mic is optimal among all types of microphones.
The R102 active aluminium ribbon microphone consists of two parts: an electro-magnetic transducer and an impedance converting circuit. The electromagnetic transducer applies a unique magnetic circuit field with a strong Nd magnet. The aluminium alloy ribbon, with a thickness of only 2.5 microns, is suspended between 2 poles and vibrates in synchrony with the incoming acoustical energy (soundwaves). Due to the extremely low mass of the ribbon, the transducer of this microphone boasts a premium transient response in converting acoustic energy into electronic signals. Whether at low/high frequencies or low/high sound pressure levels, the R102 delivers a precise reproduction of the original sound.
Please note: This item requires 48v phantom power to function.

Superlux R102 Aluminum Ribbon MicrophoneThe mic sounds as good as everyone says it does, so I won't bore you with those details. Mostly I was impressed with just how sturdy and well built it is for such a cheap price, and all the included accessories. More than that though, Artist Guitars provided exceptional customer service when I asked them about the cradle and if it can be locked in place at the mic stand and not rotate. Short answer is no. But they went into a lot of detail for me, which I appreciated. Truth be told this is not a problem for 99% of the ways I'll use this mic. This mic is an absolute bargain and Artist are great to deal with. Happy customer.

Thank you for the review. We truly appreciate it. We are happy to hear that you are satisfied with the product and our overall service.
Superlux.Deluxe Smoothness on a budget!Great silky ribbon mic for a fraction of the cost of most others.Phantom powered means no low gain issues as is common in passive ribbons.A true smooth lil ripper!
Superlux Ribbon MicSuper happy with this mic - I recorded acoustic guitar & vocal together, then recorded a tele through a Fender Hot Rod DeLuxe - we used a Shure 57 up close + the Ribbon mic a few feet from the amp. Last test recording was in vocals - beautiful result - crystal clear clarity, warm tone, super clean. I highly recommend this mic It’s sturdy & the price is under $200
