The RE20 has continued to be a firm favorite of broadcasters, musicians, and sound engineers around the world since its introduction more than 50 years ago. The RE20-BLACK offers customers an aesthetic alternative to the iconic original finish while being acoustically, electrically, and mechanically identical.
