R-122 MKII-MP Matched Pair. In 2002 Royer introduced the R-122, the world's first phantom powered, active ribbon microphone. It was a revolutionary development in ribbon mics, combining impedance matching circuitry with condenser-like output levels that allowed the R-122 to be used on even the quietest sound sources. It also allowed the mic to be paired to virtually any preamplifier. The R-122 MKll takes the R-122 to a whole new level, delivering unprecedented flexibility for ribbons via the addition of a switchable -15 dB pad and a switchable bass-cut filter. The switches are completely out of the circuit when disengaged so when both are off, the microphone is for all purposes an original R-122. The switches are located on the back of the microphone and recessed to prevent accidental activation. The Pad The R-122 MKll' switchable -15 dB pad is positioned before the microphone' electronics and, when engaged, eliminates any potential for headroom-related distortion on even the loudest sound sources. Wide open electric guitars are no problem. With the pad in, the R-122 MKll' output is actually 2 dB lower than our flagship R-121. The R-122 MKll' well-designed pad has no sonic imprint. Once levels are matched, the R-122 MKll reproduces sound exactly the same with the pad in as with the pad out. The Bass Cut When switched in, the R-122 MKll' bass cut starts filtering at 100 Hz, 6 dB per octave, effectively reducing the mic' bass buildup due to proximity effect. This smooth filter is extremely useful on vocals, many acoustic instruments, and close-miked electric guitars when less bottom end is desired. The R-122 MKll' electronics are hand-wired in our Burbank, CA factory. The microphone utilizes a special Royer-designed toroidal transformer that delivers a faster transient response then traditional ribbons, making it a first call ribbon mic for drum overheads, percussion and all acoustic instruments. Gain Conventional ribbon microphones need high-quality, high-gain mic...
