RCA 74B upgraded ribbon microphone
A classic ribbon mic from RCA, fully restored and upgraded by Stewart here at Xaudia.
The mic has been cleaned and serviced, looks great and is in perfect working order, with a new balanced cable wired to XLR.
The microphone body and grills have been stripped and refinished in satin black powder coat.Please see the photos for cosmetic condition. New grill cloths have been fitted.
Inside, the mic has been cleaned and re-wired, and fitted with an Extinct Audio ‘black ops’ low noise output transformer which gives a deeper bass response and better signal to noise than the standard 74B transformer.
This would make a great microphone for vocals, guitars or as a room microphone – or pretty much anywhere you would reach for a ribbon mic.
Output impedance is 250 ohms, ideal for all modern consoles and preamps.
Supplied with a wooden box and thread adapter to fit the mic on a modern 5/8″ microphone stand. (Or 3/8″ if you prefer)
