Type Redd Microphone from EMI / Abbey Road / Chandler continues the rich tradition of innovation at EMI.
The traditions of EMI go back to the early 1930s with Alan Blumlein developing Stereo and many other things. Save the Microphone produced by Chandler Limited and Abbey Road Studios is the first new EMI badged microphone in over half a century.
While the Save the microphone oozes “golden age” and the aesthetic is unmistakably classic, it is definitely not a U-Type clone, it is completely its own.
REDD Microphone represents a shift in traditional microphone design, it combines classic microphone design and the historic EMI REDD.47 preamp circuit in a unique way.
REDD Microphone is a large-membrane tube condenser microphone that combines microphone and
preamp in a single, handmade professional recording device.
The tube-based REDD.47 preamp is connected in direct connection with the microphone circuit and can therefore be used with or without an external preamp.
REDD The microphone is equipped with a custom capsule which in combination with the REDD.47 preamp gives it an absolutely fantastically rich, detailed and silky soft sound that exudes character and good sound.
The REDD.47 preamp provides nine choices, from 4 to + 33dB in 'NORM' position, extended gain and punch in 'DRIVE' mode for more tonal and coloring options, adjustable kidney / Omni patterns, 10dB Pad,
and phase reverse. Continuous output control and low contour function are available from
high quality external power supply.
