The R-122 MK II is a second-generation design of the venerable R-122 active ribbon mic. It shares the original mic's ribbon geometry, transformer and impedance matching circuitry with condenser-like output levels that allow the R-122 to be used on even the quietest sound sources. It can also be paired to virtually any preamplifier.

The R-122 MKII takes the R-122 to a whole new level, delivering unprecedented flexibility for ribbons via the addition of a switchable -15 dB pad and a switchable bass-cut filter. The switches are completely out of the circuit when disengaged so when both are off, the microphone is for all purposes an original R-122. The switches are located on the back of the microphone and recessed to prevent accidental activation.

• Phantom powered circuitry provides high output and impedance matching
• -15 dB pad before the mic's electronics gives more headroom when activated.
• Bass cut filter reduces proximity effect and bass below 100 Hz when activated
• High SPL Capabilities
• No distortion up to maximum SPL rating
• Extremely low residual noise
• Ribbon element is not affected by heat or humidity
• Absence of high frequency phase distortion
• Equal sensitivity from front or back of element
• Consistent frequency response regardless of distance
• Rear side of mic records slightly brighter when three feet or closer to sound source
