Aiwa RV2 / VM17s Multi-pattern ribbon mic
Japanese AIWA VM17s, also known as the RV2. A velocity ribbon microphone with selectable pattern and filter switch. The ‘NHK’ markings indicate that this microphone was formerly owned by the Japanese national broadcaster. Output impedance is 600 ohms, and it will work well with most modern preamps.
This has been completely restored here at Xaudia. New ribbon, new cable, re-finished body.
If you are looking for a great multi-pattern ribbon mic then this is a real alternative to the RCA 77DX.
