Independent Audio has launched Coles Electroacoustics' 4050 ribbon microphone. "The Coles 4050 is the very first stereo mic designed by Coles Electroacoustics," notes Independent Audio's Fraser Jones. "This mic is not only stereo, but it transforms from its stereo configuration to two completely separate mono mics. The mount has magnets that allow the two mono mics to connect together to transform into a stereo mic."
The 4050 was developed from Coles' 4040 element, and has been through extensive testing and modifications over the last few years. "It is now ready for prime time!" exclaims Jones.
