It’s time to hit the record button, and play!
Naked Eye Classic and Naked Eye Roswellite - two versions of the great Naked Eye platform - have smooth treble, well-defined midrange, and fat bottom, handling loud and soft volumes without noise. Naked Eye easily delivers that classic thick guitar tone that people spend months and many dollars to achieve, without all the fuss. Naked Eye works right into any preamp, into any computer interface, even straight into a portable field recorder! And it will sound right, because you are in control.
What is True Dual Voicing?
True Dual Voicing means that each side of the Naked Eye has a very different voice, or tone. Crowley and Tripp have specifically tuned Naked Eye to have two distinct personalities, each with excellent characteristics for your recording needs: The front, emblem side has that classic ribbon sound - that thick and creamy tone guitars love. The back has a significantly brighter, rising curve that mimics the rise of high quality vocal condensers, for perfect and flattering vocals. True Dual Voicing isn’t found in any other ribbon mics at any price, so choose versatility: Spin it around and have it both ways - the difference is big.
Award-Winning Naked Eye Classic received a PAR award in 2006 when it was first introduced. Crowley and Tripp have received three PAR awards.
Naked Eye Classic is priced at just $829 and Naked Eye Roswellite just $1295. How many Made in USA ribbon mics are priced this low? Surprisingly, when you set up manufacturing for extreme quality, the costs go down because there are fewer variables and no rejects. Every Naked Eye matches the other and we never charge extra for matched pairs (since they all match). Every Naked Eye comes with a very nice wood case and versatile, rotary Monocle Mount designed to make the most of Naked Eye’s unique dual personality. A custom suspension mount option is also available.
Any Preamp, Any Studio, Any Stage
Naked Eye high output, low noise ribbon and high efficiency transformer design means you can match it with any preamp in any studio, or use it live on stage. Each Naked Eye is fitted with a unique custom wound transformer for full bandwidth and highest efficiency. Naked Eye also works perfectly with field recorders - no phantom power needed - just plug it right in and get maximum battery life and great sound without EQ or post processing your tone.
Naked Eye is Unmatched in Quality
The finish, fit, build quality, workmanship, materials selection, and design of Naked Eye, are solid and made to last. Hefty machined parts and direct point-to-point silver blocks and gold ribbon connections assure long life. We ask that you compare Naked Eye with more expensive ribbon (and other) microphones and see and hear the difference in quality and performance. It’s that clear.
Made in USA
All Naked Eye microphones are carefully made in our Ashland, MA laboratory by people who know the art and science of making great microphones.
