    Product description

    The ART AR5 Active Ribbon microphone delivers the incredibly clear, open and natural tone associated with typical classic ribbon microphones. The dual capsule design and integrated active electronics deliver higher output and more stable impedance than a standard dynamic ribbon, maximizing the compatibility and performance with a wide range of high end preamps.

    The AR5’s rugged, low profile design makes it the ideal choice for any application where the tone of a classic ribbon microphone is preferred, but the reliability, output and performance of a condenser microphone is required.
    Although ribbon microphones are by their nature extremely fragile, the ART AR5 can handle high sound pressure levels approaching 150dB range. The low-tension, 2-micron aluminum ribbon design offers audio reproduction with smooth, natural extended low and high frequency response.

    The asymmetrical figure-8 pickup pattern has an extended sweet spot on the rear face of the microphone allowing the recording to accurately reproduce the natural space and ambient reverberation of a good sounding live room.
    The microphone’s chassis is precision-tooled brass with a dent resistant stainless-steel wire-mesh windscreen. The included shock-mount virtually eliminates vibration and handling noise, while at the same time safely securing the microphone in any position needed during the recording process.

    Please Note: the ART AR5 should always be stored upright in the carrying case when the microphone is not in use.
