big sound for small bucks if you can live with high noise floor

boyd953, Ebay

  • Summary: I had already bought a Nady RSM 4 and 5 and a friend told me he had an RSM 2. Since they are inexpensive I thought I would try out the RSM 2 as well. The only thing I don't like is that the noise floor is too high to use it for something like a solo acoustic guitar, in a mix not a problem. The overall sound is warm and pleasing with no eq added, great place to start!

Why I bought the Nady RSM-2

8891randy, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this mike because of its low price and the fact that it looks like a '40s ribbon mike. By itself, if you aren't too demanding, it makes a good vocal mike especially if you want that retro look and can't afford a RCA-77 which sells for $1,500-2,500. I am demanding so I had it modified with a new ribbon and transformer. Now it sounds like an RCA ribbon. So for the $150 for the mike and another $175 for the mod, I have a professional mike - you can't beat that!

  • Excerpt: Overall its great, Combined with a 421 or a Royer 121, you can get some really nice guitar sounds happening. My Nady RSM -2 seems to have gotten better with age. Since mine is now almost 10 years old, it's hard to say whether a brand new one will have the same magic...but there is a good chance it will. I don't honestly know how you cou...

"Neat, warm sounding mic."

  • Excerpt: Ribbon mics record using a different kind of technology than typical dynamic or condenser microphones. For someone looking for a vintage or unique kind of sound, a ribbon mic can sound great on vocals, but the user will have to deal with the figure 8 pattern. I used this mic on one album and was really satisfied with the results because we rec...

  • Excerpt: I've been using the the Nady RSM-2 ribbon microphone for a little bit less than a year. I find it to be a great option for someone looking to get a decent ribbon sound at a really low cost. This mic has a unique sound that can't be replicated with a condensor or a dynamic, but also isn't anywhere close to your non-China made ribbon microphones l...
