This microphone is ideal for live performances such as concerts or auditions. The microphone is fitted with an XLR connector to connect to any audio amplifier or mixer in a matter of minutes, making it simple to set up. The microphone is powered directly through the cable and does not need any batteries. Simply connect to a suitable XLR cable (not included) and it is ready to be used.
What is the advantage of having a dynamic microphone?
Dynamic microphones are widely used because they’re hardwearing, relatively inexpensive and don’t need a power supply. Dynamic microphones are particularly effective when used with loud sound sources that don’t contain a lot of detail at a very high frequency. This means that they are perfect for use with a range of instruments such as drums.
What position does the dynamic microphone pick sound up from?
This microphone has a cardioid polar pattern, which means it is more sensitive to sound to the front of the unit and least sensitive at the back. The pickup is based in one direction – which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound and gives it a high resistance to feedback from speakers. This makes it a perfect microphone for using in a live performance environment such as a stage.
