Shure Reactance Slide Rule

FAQ #1515 Updated October 23, 2017


I have an old Shure Brothers "product" that I still find useful. It is the RSR-1 Reactance Slide Rule. Do you still have these or know where I can get them? For those who don't know, it is a nomograph that determines resistor, capacitor, and inductor values based upon frequency requirements. I have had mine since the 1970's and it is getting a little worn out.


Shure has not offered the RSR-1 Reactance Slide Rule since the early 1960's. We have only one copy and it is in the Shure archives. Sorry to disappoint but no more are available.
