Get this and a "Fethead (regular)" and you'll have enough clean power and tone to use without having to buy an expensive additional preamp. I'm amazed at the sound for this price (or really ANY price)! It's a ribbon and sounds like a ribbon. The back sounds as good as the front also.
My first ribbon mic. I bought after researching sounds & price. Great do money. I paired with an Art Tube MP Project Series, the low impedance sounds very smooth. I bought for round smooth vocals & acoustic guitar. We just tried It first at nursing home singing today.
The R 144 is an excellent low end ribbon mic. It has a very nice warm mid range. I use it in the studio to record vocals and guitars. It has become one of my go to Mocs.
I picked up two of these to use as overheads for drums. I love the warm thick tone I'm able to get out of them. The price is unbeatable too considering how sturdy the build is. Highly recommend!
The R144 works fine on my acoustic guitar and voice. I'm positive it will be just as good on my guitar amps. What keeps me from giving a full 5 stars is that the chrome looking bracket on the mesh grill is plastic (I think).
This is my first ribbon mic, but I have been recording long enough to tell that this is a very honest mic. Although it requires a certain control over your dynamics when recording singing, because it is very sensitive. The sound is "realler than real"
I have only had it for a week so I don't know about durability, but it is really smooth, warm, and Simon and Garfunkel sounding!!
Nice lazy sound for an inexpensive ribbon mic. Would not be my first choice of mics to grab but can use it in mix with some really bright or harsh mics and it fits. Slightly, darker than I would have liked but with the right ears and some time a serviceable mic.
Ribbon mics are coming back in vogue, after a good 40 year absence. I think the reason is, condensers can sound a bit harsh in the digital world, and a good ribbon will sound smooth and nuanced, not really harsh, as they don't have to cut through layers of analog tape and noise reduction.
The mic is great for horn recording.
