This retro-style microphone is excellent for vocal pickup with its characteristic presence peak. It has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone. This allows it to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omni directional microphones cannot.
It has low-impedance balanced output designed for connection to microphone inputs rated at 75 to 300 ohms. The microphone features a cartridge shock mount to reduce stand noise, and On/Off swtich, and an attached, self-tensioning, 5/8" - 27 thread swivel mount.
This microphone is ideal for public address or theater-stage sound systems, as well as for broadcasting, recording, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.
