Royer SF-12

Ribbon Mic, Stereo, Small Elements (1.8-micron), Matte Black


Get true stereophonic recording from one microphone with the SF-12.

This stereo coincident ribbon microphone combines high quality audio performance with outstanding stereo separation and imaging, with no troublesome audible diffraction effects or cavity resonance. In actuality two matched ribbon microphones placed one above the other, each aimed 45 degrees from center in the classic Blumlein configuration, the SF-12 delivers excellent frequency response regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbons with negligible off-axis coloration.

It utilizes two 1.8-micron ribbons, each weighing approximately 1/3 milligram and producing superb transient response. The two ribbon transducers are magnet/pole piece structures that produce a wide, uniform frequency response with no substantial peaks or dips. Its extension cable comes with a Y adapter that splits into separate 3-pin male XLR connectors for the upper and lower capsules of the microphone (when held vertically). It also comes with a protective wood case and 18-foot cable.
