R0: Cardioid Large Diaphragm single backplate
"The ultimate big vocal sound"
(Sound influenced by Elam 251)
Bright, silky and intimate presence – perfect for background and lead vocals, guitar, percussion and all top-end sources.
The Red Mic R0 capsule is a bright single back plate capsule, tuned rather high. It is similar in tone to the Red R6 capsule, with an added sparkle of air in the extreme high end. To obtain the best Big Vocal Sound, work the RO close with a pop filter.
The R0 exhibits lots of cutting power and airy response, and is particularly useful for an enhanced pop music vocal presence requiring extended highs and lows.
The R0 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, on the Red Mic Type A & Type B and on the Blue Bottle mic.
