Royer Labs SF-2

Mono, Phantom Powered, Small Light-Mass Ribbon Element (1.8-micron), Matte Black Finish

SKU: ROY0013 Categories: , , , Tags: , , ,


The SF-2 is a compact, monaural, phantom powered active
ribbon microphone, exhibiting flat frequency response and a well
balanced, panoramic soundfield. The SF-2 has superb transient
response due to its low-mass 1.8-micron ribbon element. Frequency
response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound
striking the ribbon, and off-axis coloration is negligible.
The heart of the SF-2 is its ribbon transducer’s proprietary crossfield
motor assembly. Comprised of four powerful Neodymium
magnets and Permendur iron pole pieces, the cross-field design
assures the shortest front-to-rear ribbon path length for maximum high
frequency response. The SF-2’s active electronics produce an output
comparable to studio condenser microphones, while providing an optimum
load to the ribbon at all times. The low output impedance of the
SF-2 enables it to operate with any microphone pre-amplifier of average
gain and impedance characteristics, and makes it suitable for use with
long cable runs
