OUR PART # RN17
The RN17 is SE's latest addition to the new SE Rupert Neve range of microphones. Using a custom designed, hand wound transformer, this is the world's first pencil mic with a large scale, ultra high performance transformer.
Combined with a newly developed 17mm capsule from SE, the world's smallest production gold sputtered Mylar capsule, the result is truly magnificent. The definition and detail from the capsule is incredible, made more so by the headroom afforded by the Rupert Neve transformer. The combined effect is one of exceptional clarity, with a wonderfully silky finish.
The mic ships with a Cardioid capsule, in a beautiful wooden presentation case, and with 5 canisters to hold the Cardioid capsulse shipped with the mic, and further Supercardioid, Omni, Hypercardioid and Figure 8 capsules which are available to purchase separately. The whole system si then packaged in SE's top-of-the-range signature series flight-case with a custom shock mount.
