EM-Red – The EM-Red is the “mid-forward” member of the EM family.
It derives its distinctive tone from a combination of an A-Designs proprietary input transformer featuring a unique winding, and a custom wound steel/nickel-wound output transformer (also a proprietary A-Designs alloy ratio).
The EM-Red has the extra kick you need with a mic that lacks present midrange (such as the mid- scooped Chinese capsules), or for bringing an instrument forward in the mix.
The upfront mids of the EM- Red make it ideal for drums, guitar, bass guitar, and acoustic instruments…
...in fact, you will find the EM- Red particularly useful when recording acoustic guitar with a condenser microphone.
It’s also great for bringing out the resonance and character of rack and floor toms
