Perfect for close miking of guitar amps and cabinets, brass instruments, strings, piano, percussion, vocals and orchestral ambiance. Unique, compact shape for easy, unobtrusive mic placement anywhere.

      Comments about Nady RSM-5 Ribbon Microphone:

      I needed a ribbon mic in the home studio, mainly to record anything that's loud and needs a warm tone. Most ribbon mics seem really expensive, so I'm glad this one exists. Using this up close to a guitar amp sounds great. Combining this with a good dynamic (Shure SM57/Audix i5/Audio-Technica MB 2k) side by side up against a guitar amp sounds awesome!! I also tried to record a trombone with it, as I've heard ribbons are the best mic to use for that. This thing blew any dynamic mic out of the water for capturing brass sound. Thank you Nady and B&H!!
