Melodium 42B Ribbon Microphone

$2,250.00 USD
Here’s a Melodium 42B Ribbon Microphone from the late 1940’s! These were the French answer to the RCA 44-BX, and are some of the largest ribbon microphones ever made. There are now modern reissues of these microphones, however this is one of the original vintage models. These Melodium’s have a clear, punchy sound that translates to great depth and warmth on any source you try them on. This microphone is working in all 3 positions (Music = Full Frenquency; Speaker and Voice having a bass roll-off). It has been serviced with a new fixed cord, a new ribbon, and a new standard stand adapter. For it’s age, this Melodium is in beautiful condition! You can hear this exact microphone in my shootout video comparing it to an RCA 44-BX. Grab this huge French 42B ribbon microphone from Melodium!
