Large diaphragm, dynamic, cardioid, boost in LF range (60-120), used primarily on kick drum and other high SPL low frequency sources. The D20 is a dynamic microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. This means that it "hears" best what happens in front of it while rejecting sound from the sides or rear. The sound entry of the D20 is bright nickel plated. The dynamic transducer with its special "Bass Chamber" is still handmade. The Bass Chamber boosts the lower frequencies in the 60 to 120 Hz range. The large diaphragm provides full, rich bass and ensures clean, undistorted reproduction at high sound levels. Its shock mount prevents pick-up of impact and structure-borne noise. A compensation winding rejects hum induction (from power lines, amplifiers, etc.) and a built in windscreen eliminates pop noise. Its unique sound established the D20 as the world's standard microphone for bass drum and bass instrument pick-up. The D20's frequency response extends down to 40 Hz and the slight peak in the 60 to 120 Hz range enables the microphone to do full justi ce to the mellow, intimate quality of the trombone, tuba, or fluegelhorn sound. 200 Ohms.

(Tuchel is a brand name, like Neutrik or RCA. Tuchel was the premier supplier of connectors for German mic companies from the '50s to the '80s, until these connectors were phased out as XLR became the worldwide standard.)
