The RS1 multi
tube microphone system
The RS1 is something completely new and different!
It is a handbuilt variable pattern tube condenser microphone system with adjustable capsule
Its entirely new microphone design has been registered for multiple patents.
Working with the RS1 means working in a new way.
The heart of the microphone is the adjustable 1" capsule with an exceedingly thin pure
Aluminium diaphragm. It has a detailed sound with a unique clarity and precision but offers
a broad range of sonical possibilities.
The RS1 is a wild and untamed microphone you never heard before!
Being able to adjust the acoustical characteristics gives the recording engineer a tool that
creates new creative abilities. With the control ring six typical pre-settings and intermediate
stages can be used. That means you have six (and more) very different microphones in one.
The RS1 is built to a very high standart.
With a very low self noise of up to 1,5 dB-A, you can record nearly everything without risk of
adding noise to the final product.
The dynamic range of the RS1 is 127 dB (extended dynamic range is 154 dB SPL), allowing
reproduction of the full musical expression, without restraint.
This microphone is able to accept sound pressure levels of up to a maximum of 170 dB!
That means you can record anything with this mic!
The all tube amplifier of this microphone allows for extremely fine reproduction of low level signals
and low frequency information. Also, long cable runs can be used with no loss of signal quality.
The output can be either line level or microphone level. Due to the line level output it is not
necessary to use a mic pre-amp, but you can use a microphone preamp by adjusting the output
level. With the gain adjustment in the power supply it is possible to drive line level recording
equipment or A/D converters directly to ensure the highest quality audio without any loss. This
unique gain control is accomplished by changing the capsule polarization voltage. Changing the
gain results in no change in sound.
The RS1 has an integrated shock mount, that makes the mic very easy to handle. You don`t have
to be afraid of the mic falling out of the mount!
We only use handselected nonmicrophonic original German made NOS Special Quality longlife
The capsule is temperature stabilized to make it suitable for outside recordings. The housing,
power supply and shock mount are made of solid milled high-grade steel.
The RS1 itself and all important parts of the microphone are all built in Germany! We are proud
that even the entire capsule is designed and produced in our laboratory.
There is a 5 year warranty.
