NUDE - Stereo Blumlein Ribbon Microphone

The "Swiss Army Microphone" - Most versatile microphone you'll ever own!

Comprised of two perfectly matched ribbon microphones mounted as close as is physically possible (one above the other) and each aimed 45 degrees from centre. This is what is termed a Blumlein stereo array microphone. It is phenomenal for close mic'ing of almost any source I've presented it with but particularly shines used as a drum overhead or for capturing an orchestra or ensemble and the associated room ambience. Perfectly suited to capturing horn sections and taming their bite. Close mic'ing a guitar will reveal a sense of movement and depth, you'll hear each hand. Perfect for string sections, capture the entire string section with a single mic and marvel at the luscious stereo panorama. It comes finely presented in an aluminium flight case containing the microphone in a heavily padded soft case, 5 metre (5pin) cable, passive split box to L/R 3pin xlr outs, a solid shock mount and a pop filter.
