R7: Cardoid large diaphragm single backplate
The classic vocal sound
(Sound influenced by Neumann/Telefunken U47)
The R7 is Red's best selling capsule! This single backplate capsule is Red's version of the unmistakably warm sound of the great 1950's tube microphone. A boost in the upper midrange response brings out just the right amount of intimate detail for vocal tracks that demand the extra presence.
The natural high end response of this capsule is the perfect complement for midrangy or thin voices, as well as any rock/ soul/ blues/ jazz vocals that need to "sit in the mix"
Lead vocals, background vocals, saxophone, flugelhorn, clean or distorted electric guitar and organ.
The R7 is one of Red's renowned series of vintage capsules, each with their own unique tonal characteristics and pickup patterns.
Each of these vintage style microphone capsules come nestled in Red's hand built cherrywood/velvet line capsule box.
These bayonet-mounted capsules will add versatility to your vintage microphones and will fit on Neumann/Geffel CMV 563, 3, 4, 5 & RFT Tube microphones as well as on the Red Mic type B &A and on the Blue Bottle mic.
