Product Highlights
  • Captures in Blumlein and M-S Stereo
  • Dual Ribbon Capsules
  • High SPL Handling

The Royer Labs SF-12 Stereo Ribbon Microphone incorporates their classic ribbon sound in a stereo microphone. Two 1.8-micron aluminum ribbon transducers are mounted on top of each other in a 45-degree Blumlein stereo configuration. The result are stereo recordings with vivid, life-like detail and tranparent audio fidelity. The SF-12 features a 5-pin XLR connector and a 18' (5.48m) cable with dual standard XLR connectors is supplied.

The high SPL capability and figure-8 polar pattern associated with ribbon microphones apply here as well. Engineers have been known to switch their dual microphone techniques for the convenience, reliability and audio quality of the SF-12 when capturing orchestras, ambiance, group vocals, performances, etc.
