All round smooth and warm mic

By: Vatche Demirjian on 29 November 2018
I purchased the mic for voice-over projects in my studio. Ribbon mics are known for smooth low end and dull hights, but the R102 Mk II having extended top end, makes it very suitable for any application. I have already done few voice-over takes and this mic sounds fantastic! It's clean, sensative and well balanced for the audio spectrum required for voice-over. It delivers that powerful low-mid vocal frequencies very well. Using it for vocals singing pop songs also performed well, both for male and female vocals. On acoustic guitars, once you position it right, slightly towards the neck and 40cm to 50cm away, it captures the strings nicely too. I would recommend micing the acoustic guitars with a condenser and have the R102 as a room mic to give a stereo effect. I have not yet tried them on my acoustic drums. I'm sure as a room mic or even overhead mic will sound great too. For the price, it's one of the best. It does deliver.
