What would I use this microphone with?
The D5 microphone is a dynamic supercardioid microphone perfect for stage and live performances. Get crisp sound with an integrated pop filter and high feedback suppression. The D5 can handle loud noises up to 156 dB SPL and can cut out a large amount of unwanted sound.

What position does the dynamic microphone pick sound up?
The D5 dynamic microphone uses a supercardioid pattern to capture sound. Supercardioid microphone are great for picking up sounds in front of the mic without hearing extra noise interference from the back or sides. The dual shock mount will cut down on extra noise even further giving you the best possible sound.

What is the advantage of having a dynamic microphone?
Dynamic microphones are the more widely used microphones. This is due to them being more hardwearing, relatively inexpensive and the lack of a need for a power supply. This gives you a very durable wired microphone and a cheaper alternative for those who are starting out. Dynamic microphones are effective when used with loud sound sources which don’t contain a lot detail at a very high frequency. This means a dynamic microphone is perfect for use with a range of instruments such as drums or guitar.
