Ribbon mic technology made affordable.

The Nady RSM-5 Studio Microphone has a low-tension aluminum ribbon design for smooth, natural extended low and high ends. With fast, accurate transient response, ultra-high SPL capability, and stunning realism. The compact shape of the RSM-5 makes unobtrusive placement a breeze when recording instruments. Other features include: Figure-8 audio directional pickup patterns with front and rear wide, extended sweet spots (as compared to large diaphragm condenser mics); increased off-axis high frequency response on sides, with decreased high response above and below on-axis; individual recording volume control of separate sources; and machined housing with advanced internal shock mount construction for the highest structural integrity and rugged reliability.

Looking for smooth, clear-sounding vocals? Ribbon technology gives you the natural-sounding highs while the figure-8 pattern eliminates proximity effect and the low frequency rumble that comes with the off-axis coloration of cardioid mics. Plus, you get a little room tone for added ambience and realism.

  • Low-tension, 45mm long, 2-micron thick aluminum ribbon design with large mellow ribbon audio reproduction
    Smooth, natural extended low and high end detail with realistic mid-range

  • Nady RSM-5 Ribbon Studio Microphone

    As reviewed by Roger Morton on 6/13/2013

    I like the sound a Ribbon Microphone provides, I have a higher level NADY Ribbon so I thought I knew what to expect. I bought this as one-half of a live mic pair for remote recordings. The Figure 8 pattern will allow ambient sounds (like an audience) to be recorded at a lower level than the front loaded ribbon and reject side extraneous noise. I also like the 'pumping effect' produced by the proximity effect if you get it up close and personal to the source. Unboxing the mic as Nady advises I checked for ribbon tension and it seems to be spot on, no rattles even at high amplifier volume. SWEET! The build is pretty robust and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the lack of an exterior windscreen (necessary) and the cloth bag that comes with it. Nady advises to store it upright but that is a little bit difficult when it is in a cloth bag and has no skeleton to it. I would gladly pay another 15-20.00 for these two items but enough of that lament. It sounds BIG! I was surprised when I played back the recordings from this passive mic (as opposed to the 48v Ribbon I have already have). It did EXACTLY what I was looking for and nothing less. Skip the cork sniffing if you are looking for a decent Ribbon Mic, at this price point, there is nothing else remotely close. I would replace it in a heartbeat if necessary. Excellent microphone, well done Nady.
