RS Mics are built to order. This configuration features a CK12-style Edge-Terminated Capsule in a Transformer-Coupled build.
The body is a sleek 44mm diameter and the mic is small enough to fit in tight spaces. Extended silky top-end of the CK12-style capsule combined with the fatness of the transformer give this mic a huge tone with great dynamic response.
- The imported (China) T8 style. This is low cost transformer which performs pretty well. It has a slightly thinner and brighter tone.
- CineMag (USA) 5722w. This is a very high quality transformer which is still moderately priced. It has a very full, even tone with great harmonic content and transformer crunch. Probably the best choice overall for most applications
- The Tab-Funkenwerk (USA) T12 style. This is a more expensive transformer. It has a massively fat and full low and low-mid response. Although it has great high frequency response, you may perceive the overall tone as slightly dark because of the extra full lows and low-mids.
