Large Element Ribbon


Generally considered to be the ideal microphone for vocals, solo instruments and any broadcast application, the classic ribbon microphone design boasts the most natural sounding audio capture available.

The active element of the Apex210B is a very thin corrugated aluminium ribbon mounted under low tension between the poles of a strong magnet. The asymmetrical figure-8 pickup pattern has an extended sweet spot on the rear face of the microphone allowing the recording to accurately reproduce the natural space and ambient reverberation of a good sounding live room with incredibly fast and accurate transient response and stunning realism. The Apex210B ribbon microphone is ideal for todays direct to digital recordings.

Although ribbon microphones are by their nature extremely fragile, the Apex210B can handle high sound pressure levels approaching 165dB range. The low-tension 2-inch long, 2-micron thick aluminum ribbon design offers audio reproduction with smooth, natural extended low and high frequency response. The Apex210B comes in an all new black and smoked chrome finish, and is shipped with a custom designed aluminum carrying case.
