This custom modified ribbon is exclusively built by ZenPro Audio, and provides a phantom powered boost for added gain. Our mod brings a super-powered ribbon to your arsenal that performs well beyond its asking price. You simply turn +48V phantom power on and experience over 30dB of extra gain, making it an easy reach when you want a ribbon mic sound on a quiet or distant source without maxing out your microphone preamp.

What We Do

  • Our Microphone Booster™ circuit is added to the microphones

What It Means

  • Phantom powered design brings over 30dB of extra gain
  • Excellent choice for lower volume or distance / room recording
  • Requires +48V phantom to be on to use the mic

  • $679 Lundahl transformer mods (adds $250)
