RCA 74-B Ribbon Microphone
Here’s an RCA 74-B Ribbon Microphone from the 1950’s! RCA made these 74-B’s as a “junior velocity” introduction into the ribbon market. The 74-B was originally intended for PA use and broadcasting, but has become known as a great studio tool for guitar amps and more. If you’re looking for the boomy proximity effect of an RCA 44, these are not what you’re looking for! The 74-B has a built in rolloff in the transformer that was originally designed for better results with public speaking. These ribbons have a magic effect on guitar amps and bring out the warmth and sparkle that you want to hear. This one has been serviced with a new ribbon and cable, ready for use! Note that someone added and on/off switch at some point, but it has been bypassed. Grab this classic 74-B Ribbon Microphone from RCA!
