Roxdon AR1 ribbon mic


I'm looking to buy a budget active ribbon mic and the ones that are top of my list are :-

Roxdon AR1
RoXdon AR 1 Active Ribbon Microphone

Golden Age R1 mkIII
Golden Age Project

Superlux R102
Superlux Ribbon and Specialty Microphones

Has anyone had any experience with either of these mics, especially the Roxdon AR1?

...d-funk, a little word to the wise...although I've not tracked with the RoXdon active ribbon mic, I owned another very reputable brand (which shall remain nameless since this is not a good review) and the mic was too dark and too noisey...from what I've heard in the studio, the tube/ribbon mics like the Nady TRM-6 have a smoother overall vibe than the active ribbon mics I've heard... the review for more info:
NADY TRM-6 Tube Ribbon Microphone
