Introducing our first in-house, custom-built, Michael Swart designed Swart R-2 Ribbon Mic, designed to get the sound of your Swart amp's tone to the recording in the richest and most natural way.
The very first amp we ever made, the first one that actually inspired it all, was the Space Tone 6V6se. We made this amp along with a few variations in our studio, and musicians who came to record loved it so much, they asked us if there was any way they could buy one. This is literally how Swart Amplifier Co got off the ground. Well, there was much more, but that's the long and short of it. So why all this preamble?
This is our first journey into another realm of the recording process and one that Michael has had sitting in the studio for use. And once again, people were asking if they could have one
Yeah, it's SWART to the bone.
The R-2 Ribbon Mic embodies all of what made the original Space Tone
and Atomic Space Tone so great.... It's soulful. It passes along the
emotion of the music. It's naturalness will shock you.

Our first 30 sold out much sooner then we imagined so we are trying to get the custom transformers wound, ribbons cut, and the next batch of boxes in green and black sparkle in to be hand screen printed. Remember, each one of the R-2 takes quite a bit of labor; this is no assembly line pop out from China. After completion, each R-2 is run through a battery of tests by Michael before he signs and numbers and personally packs your mic.
