A "point and shoot" style stereo ribbon microphone making it easy to get imaging right, all from one mic!
The X-Treme Stereo ribbon microphone houses two separate matched ribbon elements that are positioned one above the other. The elements are offset 90 degrees and are configured in the Blumlein setup. Stereo separation is superb and off-axis coloration is minimal. Add in the excellent frequency response and extended sensitivity range the X-Treme is ready for the big leagues. The fit and finish are of top quality and includes a premium suspension shockmount, thick padded vinyl pouch and an upgraded aluminum case. A 5-pin cable is included, the cable connects splitter where two separate XLR connectors give access the upper and lower ribbons.
Legendary symmetrical ribbon design is incorporated into the X-Treme. Unlike most ribbon motors designed today, X-Treme has two hand-tuned ribbon elements that are offset that incorporate the legendary symmetrical ribbon design. This design offers a true figure 8 pattern. The corrugated aluminum membrane itself is positioned in the center from front to back, thus producing a balanced audio input signal to both sides of the ribbon assembly. Application: Drum overheads, guitar cabinets, acoustic guitars, horns, piano, room ambiance, Percussion, choir and Orchestra.
Note: As with all ribbon type microphones, the X-Treme is not suitable for instruments that produce air-pressure, i.e. kick drum or blowing directly into the grill.
