With its brawny build and inviting tone, the Stager SR-1A ribbon mic has both feet in the past with a brain in the future. This mammoth ribbon mic has some of the biggest, truest bottom-end you could hope to hear from a ribbon or condenser or anything else that turns sound into electricity for that matter. And it's heavy. Physically heavy...and that ain't for no reason. The SR-1A houses massive alnico magnets around a long ribbon in a precision metal housing. The output transformer, also made in-house, is a new toroid design that's responsible for the deep bass and open, lulling top-end.
The Stager SR-1A ships in a handmade life-preserving wood box, which holds the microphone in an upright position and is an awesome handmade life-preserving wood box. Keep the microphone on a stand, or in the box. Don't leave it anywhere else. It's got gigantic magnets in it. Y'never know.
