Peluso SR 14 Stereo Ribbon Microphone

Peluso SR 14 Stereo Ribbon Microphone


We build our SR 14 with two complete R 14 microphones in one body with the upper ribbon element capable of up to a 90-degree rotation. This allows for the popular 'Blumlein technique', a mid-side set up, and other stereo recording techniques. The SR 14 delivers clean balanced output through the use of a custom output transformer. Sonically the SR 14 delivers the rich, warm, and silky smooth sound of a ribbon microphone with generous low end in a two channel stereo image. It is un-hyped, natural and takes EQ very nicely. The SR 14 ribbon microphone is the perfect stereo complement to the condensers in your microphone collection.

• The microphone comes as a complete system including: SR 14 Microphone in a Wood Box, Shock Mount, Stereo Matrix, and 7-Pin Cable all packed in a Flight Case.

• All Peluso Microphones are covered by a Three Year Limited Warranty.

When designing the R 14, TR 14, and SR 14 microphones we wanted to create a classic vintage-style ribbon microphone in the vein of the early RCA microphones. We used classic long ribbon geometry. Thin corrugated aluminum ribbon is tensioned between two rare earth neodymium magnets. As the ribbon moves with the ambient acoustic air pressure variation a current is induced in the ribbon itself. This current is the microphone's output signal. The ribbon is placed just forward of the magnet center. This provides a very slight low-end roll-off on the backside of the microphone, which can be very useful if proximity effect needs to be countered.
