The Electro-Harmonix EH-R1 ribbon microphone is the perfect complement to any professional microphone lineup. Offering the natural and open sound associated with the finest ribbon microphones, the EH-R1 boasts a broad, flat frequency response that shines on any instrument that requires real definition. According to company president Mike Matthews, "It’s an awesome microphone. When I first tried a sample of it, I was amazed by how it presented expressions of my voice that I had NEVER heard before." "I liked it so much," he added, "that I decided to put the EH brand on it and get it out there to our customers." The EH-R1 is beautiful on vocals, stunning on acoustic instruments - and offers performance and construction that are second to none. Great sound is the bottom line.

- Ribbon microphone EH-R1 for professional sound studios with figure-of-eight beam pattern could be used in the range of 50 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit environment temperature, 84 to 106.7 KPa atmosphere pressure, up to 93% humidity at 77F.
- To maximize sensitivity and minimize distortion, very thin corrugated aluminum ribbons are used in this microphone. That’s why the microphone needs gentle care, even heavy direct blowing too close to the mic could cause damage to the ribbon. Also, before use, remember to install the mic into a shock absorber or install it into your holder by using the enclosed hinge or, if needed, the 3/8" threaded bushing. To clean the mic, please use nothing but a soft rag. DO NOT SPRAY CLEANERS or SOLVENTS on the mic.
