It takes two R44 to make the R88. It's big, it's full! Put it on an acoustic guitar, add a little EQ shine and stand back and be amazed!
The R88 mk2 is optimized for recording instruments and ensembles in stereo. The R88 uses the large ribbon configuration of the classic RCA 44 series mics, which gives the mic solid 20Hz bass response and a smooth high end which is flattering to complex tones.
