RN17 is a condenser mic with an extraordinarily small diaphragm that provides an intensely immediate transient response. A diaphragm of this size will react to even the most delicate of high frequencies with great speed and accuracy.
The world's first pencil microphone with a large-scale, hand-wound, ultra high performance transformer.
RN17 ships standard with a cardioid capsule, but an omnidirectional capsule is also available for purchase separately. RN17 includes a custom-designed, sturdy, protective, and easy-to-use shock mount, which is essential to reducing the unwanted effects of vibration or knocks to the supporting microphone stand.
