“The RPQ500 lets my ribbon microphones be themselves without too much unwanted color and noise I’ve used the RPQ500 for clean acoustic guitars and dirty drum room mics and it’s easy and effective for both!

The N22 is the only ribbon mic I’d consider using on loud, fuzzed-out guitar amps. The N22 is as unique as it is useful. It should be in every locker.”
