RESLO RBT ORIGINAL
VINTAGE CASE, CUSTOM MODERN PERFORMANCE MIC
A beautiful vintage mic which will always be associated with The Beatles. Original features: a brushed alloy body and adjustable "hinged" rectangular head. Modified with a top quality dynamic insert, with high spec transformer balanced XLR connector.
History: Approximate year of manufacture 1959. This was originally designed as a microphone for recording. The ribbon was very sensitive and easily damaged by loud singing or blowing into the microphone. However, close-up vocal use was made possible by inserting felt "acoustic correction pads" into the head. The felt pad gave a degree of bass reduction and protection for the ribbon. An additional yellow fabric insert at the rear of the head altered the pick up characteristic from Figure of 8 to single side making it less susceptible to feedback and more suitable for PA use.
