The Mercenary Edition “el Diablo™” is an entirely new type of microphone with smooth ribbon sound, high output, and unequalled sound pressure level handling. This microphone employs Roswellite™ which is a new class of advanced materials called Supermatter™.
Supermatter™ is engineered with nano-scaled structures that provide incredible strength and durability, far greater than all of the old foil materials that have been used (and cursed at) for decades. It retains a memory for it’s original shape which makes it ideal for high SPL applications.
El Diablo is the first ribbon microphone to go where no ribbon mic has been before: inside pounding kick drums and blaring horns, pushed up against cranked guitar amplifier speakers, and on loud singers on an open, outdoor stage. Roswellite™ revolutionizes the field of ribbon mics, does away with the worries forever, and has that Crowley and Tripp ribbon mic tone, so it can be used throughout your studio, and for live sound, indoors or out.
Note: In the US this product is subject no haggle pricing!
