Fostex Printed Ribbon Microphones
Thanks to the kindness of Mr. John Pribyl, we are able to provide this rare June 1982 Fostex publication. Included are details of printed ribbon mic construction and characteristics, a brief comparison of sound acceptance patterns and classifications, and differences between ribbon and printed ribbon diaphragm mics. Also discussed are typical applications, distortion measurement procedures, and induction and wind noise. Models covered are the M11RP, M22RP, M55RP, M77RP, M80RP, M85RP, and M88RP. This is a 1.3 megabyte, six-page PDF formatted for 8½ × 11-inch printing.
In addition to the Technical Report that is offered above, a single-page chart of technical specifications is provided that compares the Fostex M11RP, M22RP, M55RP, M77RP, M80RP, M85RP, M88RP, and M51RP microphones. This chart is available as a PDF or as a GIF.
