Bidirectional Ribbon Microphone

The R-144 HE is a cosmetic refresh of MXL’s R-144 ribbon. It is part of the “Heritage Edition” suite of microphones, which share a metallic silver finish with gold-tone accents.

The ribbon transducer uses a very thin (1.8 micron) aluminum ribbon with a length of approximately 47mm.

For more information, see the R-144 profile page (linked from the sidebar).
