The AR5 Active Ribbon Microphone from ART features an active preamp module, a figure-8 pickup pattern, and is powered by 48V phantom power. It delivers the classic ribbon tone with an increased output, a more stable frequency, and a better dynamic response that can be used with various differing-input channel strips or preamps for live stage, recording studios, and more.
The AR5 can handle high sound-pressure levels approaching a 150 db range. The low-tension 2-micron aluminum ribbons offer audio reproduction with smooth, natural, extended low- and high-frequency responses. It is built with a precision-tooled body and dent-resistant, stainless-steel wire-mesh windscreen that offers long-term reliability.
Furthermore, the included shockmount virtually eliminates vibration and handling noise, while at the same time safely secures the microphone in any position needed during the recording process. An aluminum carry case is also included.
