Had tensioned ribbon
The generating element of the X1 R comes in the form of a hand-tensioned 2.5µm aluminium ribbon. This provides the inherent smoothness that you would associate with ribbon mics of the past. The advantage here over older microphones is that the X1 R's design is incredibly durable - make no mistake, the X1 R is a microphone you can take anywhere.
another advantage of the modern build of the X1 R Ribbon Microphone is the fact that it can handle large sound pressure levels making it an excellent contender for use with drums and guitar cabinets whilst capturing everything with incredible precision.
