Peavey RAC1 ribbon microphone Dynamic Microphones

Peavey RAC1 ribbon microphone

Has anyone tried or even seen one of these? I bumped into one at a local store. First thing I noticed on the specs was a 2.5 micron ribbon, which might be thinner than most Chinese ribbons. Priced at $200 could be competition with fatheads etc?

Three years later... lol. I own this mic in a copper finish. I have used it on vocals for a warm older style sounding vocal. Pretty cool, but not very versatile for all vocals. I do really like this mic paired with an sm57 for guitar. Very specifically it sounded great on a Vox cab with a slightly distorted tone that the musician was using for blues music. I will point out that I have not used a fat head before, so I can't offer you any comparison. Although I do know alot of people who pair the fat head with an sm57 as well.
