Passive ribbon microphone
The R 2 MkII is quite different from the R 1 series of mics. It features a ribbon transducer with a shorter and more narrow ribbon. It is darker sounding than the R 1 series since the higher frequencies roll off earlier.
The R 2 MkII will do wonders with both clean and distorted electrical guitar, with brass instruments and more. It is delivered with a metal shock mount.
