TR 14 Vacuum Tube Ribbon Microphone

We paired the classic design of the R 14 Ribbon Microphone with a tube gain stage and the result is the Peluso TR 14 Tube Ribbon Microphone. This unique design allows the TR 14 to handle low-level sources and long cable runs transparently and without the need for high gain pre amps. The TR 14 provides enhanced gain and added harmonic complexity to the rich, warm, and silky smooth sound of a ribbon microphone. The unique sound of the TR 14 Ribbon is the perfect complement to the condensers in your microphone collection.
Remember never blow into a ribbon microphone!

The microphone comes as a complete system including: TR 14 Microphone in a Wood Box, Shock Mount, Power Supply, and 7-Pin Cable all packed in a Flight Case.

Reviews & Demos

'Not only does it have that classic vintage ribbon sound but it's a vintage TUBE ribbon sound. It's a bizarre cross section between a tube condenser and a ribbon. Perfect for my own jazz, acoustic sensibilities. It's gets that smooth, silky ribbon sound, which is already warm, with the added warmth of tube and gain with the condenser.'
'This thing sounds great on electric guitar! I used it on over driven guitar with a classic '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb and my old Strat. I placed the mic in a variety of places, but preferring it, in this case, about 2 inches in front of the grill. It turned out a big sweet sound. I had to boost the EQ about 3 db at 3.5K, which is pretty standard for me to get the sound I like with ribbons and this guitar. There was less proximity effect than with the R-14, but it was just a great sound. And then I used it on my Gibson ES-355 and a Seymore Duncan Convertible for some fantastic crunchy guitar. It's the best sound yet I've had with that combination, -- and I've been doing that guitar/amp combo for probably 20 years or more!'
'And if you want a great ribbon, with that classic vintage sound, but are concerned about gain with your pre, this is the ribbon for you!'
