It has all the standard features you’d expect from any bass mic: large diaphragm dynamic; cardioid polar pattern; frequency response tailored for recording kick drums, bass cabs, and other bass instruments; But one of its more unique features of this AKG mic is the built-in windscreen inside the capsule to protect against popping.
Dynamic microphones don't require their own power supply like condenser microphones. However, their sound quality is generally not as accurate. Most dynamic microphones have a limited frequency response, which makes them well-suited, along with their ability to withstand high sound pressure levels, for loud guitar amps, live vocals, and drums.
Also, there are large diaphragm microphones whose diaphragm size is slightly below 1 inch, often 22 mm. And just to confuse you, some manufacturers will give you the size of the entire capsule, which in the case of a typical large diaphragm capsule is 32-34 mm. The actual diaphragm size rarely exceeds 27 mm.
Multi-Pattern Microphones: What, Where and How? Written by Davida Rochman on August 11, 2014 Is it really a cardioid world? While the cardioid polar pattern is undoubtedly the most often used in live sound applications (after all, the ubiquitous Shure SM57 and SM58® microphones are both cardioid types), there’s a case to be made for models that, with the flip of a switch (or the changing of a head) offer directionality options.
The TLM 102 defines a new generation of Neumann studio microphone. It sets a new performance and value standard for microphones at this price. It's reduced overall size contributes to an exceptionally compact appearance, which unites all of the typical design components of a Neumann microphone.
Razer is hitting the game-broadcaster market hard with its recent product launches, and that continues with its new Seiren Elite USB microphone. This $200 mic is shipping now, and Razer is positioning it as a USB alternative to expensive pro setups that use XLR mics, mixers, and other equipment.
A ribbon microphone, also known as a ribbon velocity microphone, is a type of microphone that uses a thin aluminum, duraluminum or nanofilm of electrically conductive ribbon placed between the poles of a magnet to produce a voltage by electromagnetic induction.
Final thoughts...in terms of sound, the Rode NT-USB Condenser Microphone is better than my Blue Yeti or Audio Technica AT 2020, both of which I'm shelving. Sure, the Blue Yeti has more functional controls, but I am a stickler for sound quality, and the Rode delivers plenty of that for a USB microphone.
The result is an ultra-wide dynamic range, low noise, and stunning tube warmth. The NTK's rich valve sound is ideal for vocals, acoustic instruments, drum overheads, guitar amps and pianos. The RØDE NTK microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
Further expanding on the already diverse line of USB microphones, Samson has created the Go Mic as a versatile computer-based miking and recording solution. Because of its custom compact design, the Go Mic can clip right onto your laptop or sit unobtrusively on your desk.
Small diaphragm condenser microphones with a decent signal-to-noise ratio only became feasible when dedicated microphone tubes and low noise transistors became available in the 1950s and 60s. To this day, the main technical advantage of large diaphragm condenser microphones is their noise performance.
