The Golden Age Project R1 ST microphone features two high quality vintage style ribbon microphone sections with transformer balanced outputs in a classic Blumlein configuration for stereo and mono recordings. It offers the unique and natural sound that has been available in classic microphones like the RCA 44 and 77 that are still used to make high quality recordings today after over 80 years. The R1 ST is very well suited for the recording of most sound sources such as vocals, acoustic instruments, strings, horns, orchestras and choral groups, as well as many live audio applications. Each section of the R1 ST can also be used as a mono-microphone. The Figure-8 pattern of the ribbon sections gives you the ability to separate sound sources by placing the unwanted ones in the zero pick-up side directions. This will remove most of the direct sound from the sound source. The R1 ST will still pick up that source from the reverberant field in the recording room though.


  • Two ribbon elements, one placed above the other; each aimed 45 degrees from center in a classic Blumlein configuration
  • Creates a wonderful stereophonic representation of the sound source and the acoustic environment
  • Either side of the R1 ST can also be used as a mono microphone
  • The natural, smooth and musical sound of vintage style ribbon microphone technology
  • Captures every transient without harshness or hardness
  • The warm and punchy sound of a transformer balanced output
  • Ultra-high SPL capability, 160 dB SPL (1% THD @ 1000 Hz)
  • Each section has a figure-8 directional pattern with wide sweet spots in the front and in the back
  • 50 mm long, 2 microns aluminum ribbons
  • Detachable microphone cable and a cable splitting box for left and right output
  • Includes Shockmount, Spitter Box, and 2 Transport Cases
