Royer Labs SF-24V

Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon, Dual Small Light-Mass Ribbon Elements (1.8-micron), Burnished Satin Nickel Finish

SKU: ROY0017 Categories: , , , Tags: , , ,


The SF-24V vacuum tube stereo ribbon microphone is the
pinnacle of our SF-series stereo microphones. The sound
pickup is lush, smooth and natural, with outstanding stereo
imaging and superb transient response. The tube electronics
provide increased midrange reach, unmatched clarity and
detail, and an airiness previously unheard of in ribbon mics.
Utilizing the same proprietary tube electronics as in our TEC
Award winning R-122V ribbon microphones, the SF-24V delivers
the ultimate in stereo ribbon miking for the true connoisseur
of recorded sound.
The SF-24V’s independent tube circuits provide an output level of
-38 dB, suitable for use with any professional preamplifier. With selfnoise
of lower than 18 dB, the SF-24V’s ultra-quiet operation is suitable for
the most demanding classical and acoustic recording applications.
Like an SF-12, the SF-24V is actually two matched ribbon microphones,
placed one above the other in a coincident pair, each aimed 45 degrees from
center in the classic Blumlein configuration. The magnet/pole piece structure
of each ribbon transducer delivers a wide, uniform frequency response with
no substantial peaks or dips, and the 1.8-micron ribbons produce superb
transient response. Frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle
of sound striking the ribbons and off-axis coloration is negligible
