Production Status: In production
The R-122 MKII Live is a road-optimised version of the phantom powered R-122 MK-II ribbon microphone. The R-122 MKII Live’s output is on par with phantom powered condenser microphone, allowing for long cable runs, and its switchable -15 dB pad and bass-cut filter deliver unprecedented flexibility on electric guitars, drum overheads, trumpets and other live instruments. The R-122 MKII Live is visually differentiated by its red logo. The ribbon element thickness is increased from 2.5-microns to 4-microns, giving the microphone greater durability and a slightly reduced high end response. Highs are often rolled off in live performances, but due to the R-122 MKII Live’s smooth high frequency response, it needs less eq’ing than is usually required with condenser and dynamic microphones.
