Golden Age Project Ribbon Mics

Our hand tuned ribbon microphones offer  crystal clear transients paired with a full, warm body you come to expect with a high quality ribbon mic.

Our Golden Age Ribbon Mics are offered in a variety of models to cover your production needs. From the classic passive ribbon mic styles to the new active ribbon mics. We even offer a tube ribbon mic with smooth tube harmonics and active ribbon circuitry. All of our ribbon mics are hand tuned and offer updated transformers for a smooth response and tighter frequency control.

R1 Mk II

A high quality vintage style ribbon microphone offering the natural warm sound of the classic microphones.

R1 Active Mk II

The R1 MKII offers the best of both worlds, combining the warmth of a ribbon and the stability of a F.E.T. buffer amplifier.

R1 Tube Active

Warm, fat, and smooth with incredible overtones are some of the ways to describe the R1 Tube Active ribbon microphone.


Two vintage style ribbon elements with transformer balanced outputs in a classic Blumlein configuration for deep and wide stereo and mono recordings.

R2MKII Ribbon Microphone

R2 Mk II

Featuring a ribbon transducer with a shorter, narrower ribbon giving a darker, warmer tone and a high frequency roll off earlier. Perfect for loud sources that tend to be shrill.
