The gray DR-2 Dual-Ribbon Microphone from Cascade Microphones is a passive, double-ribbon design with a symmetrical figure-8 pickup pattern. Unlike offset ribbon designs, this microphone produces equal (but out-of-phase) response from the front and back sides of the motor, making it useful as the side channel in a mid-side setup, or within a Blumlein array. The ribbons are corrugated aluminum measuring 1.5'' in length and 0.15'' in width, mounted parallel 5/8'' apart. The design intent of using two ribbons is to increase sensitivity.
The ribbon motors are housed within a mesh grille. The mic provides no other screening or blast filtering, which has the benefit of reducing unwanted resonance but does expose the ribbon elements to contamination. The use of a pop filter when tracking vocals is recommended. The frequency response is slightly elevated from 40 to 100 Hz, flat through 4 kHz, and rolls off through 15 kHz.
Furthermore, the microphone comes equipped with a transformer to transform low-voltage and low-impedance ribbon motors to normal microphone output levels.
