General Description: The Cliff Mics RM1 is a professional-quality magnetic ribbon microphone with integral, phantom-powered preamplifier and integral, subsonic-tuned shockmount support. See drawing for dimensions. The RM1 features these innovations:
Large-format, low-mass, contoured ribbon diaphragm of pure aluminum.
Extremely high magnetic gap energy via FEA-optimized Neodymium magnetic circuit design resulting in unprecedented at-ribbon output at any sound pressure input.
First-stage at-the-ribbon, phantom-powered, whisper-quiet, zero-feedback, all-discrete, high-fidelity preamplifier, developed in collaboration with the LR Baggs Company of Nipomo California. Overall sensitivity: -39dB/1Pa
Integral, two-stage, acoustically-transparent debris and pop/explosives filter system.
“The Artist’s Microphone” The RM1 is exceptionally easy to use, capturing any artist's performance with dependable and consistent sonic integrity. This is the paintbrush singers dream about. Recordings reveal “the sound you hear in your head” (one artist’s reaction). This microphone is also superb for radio/tv broadcasting and for recording the sound of many instruments including drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar amps and more.
5 year warranty covering all workmanship, materials and finishes/coatings. Warranty does not cover:
The ribbon diaphragm. Ribbons in a studio environment will last almost forever but they are pure aluminum and thus subject to the environment they are used in.
Damage due to a dropped microphone (this normally requires a complete rebuild).
