R6: Cardoid large diaphragm dual backplate
The modern presence vocal sound
(Sound influenced by AKG C12)
This is Red's premium capsule, tuned to deliver a larger than life sound with extension in the lower and upper frequencies.
Modern tone with sharply-etched presence. With a brighter response and more proximity effect than the Red R7 capsule, and less high or low end extension compared to the Red R0 capsule, this capsule is logically the first choice for vocals. The R6 has the highest sensitivity of Red's R line of capsules, and delivers significantly hotter output than most condenser microphones.
Lead vocals, background vocals, voice overs, percussion, piano, vibraphone, Jazz guitar, foley and sound effect recording and extremely quiet sources.
The R6 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.
