EV ELECTROVOICE 666 RARE VINTAGE CARDIOID DYNAMIC MICROPHONE W/CASE+CLIP
Sorry, this item is out of stock
with original cable terminating to XLR connector, box, clip, and manual (I'm not sure if it's a copy)
From the original manufacturer's description:
The Model 666 is a cardioid microphone of the dynamic type. The cardioid pattern is obtained through use of three sound entrances located in the microphone case at different distances in back of the diaphragm. The three sound entrances, each utilizing the proper acoustical impedance, combine to form one effective back entrance, which varies in distance from the diaphragm inversely with frequency. The resulting phase and amplitude conditions produce a uniform range at the flat position on the preamplifier. This variable front-to-back distance along with dynamic construction affords high resistance to mechanical shock and produces virtually no proximity effect. The front-to-back ratio is double to triple that of the average cardioid microphone.
The Model 666 is an all-purpose microphone designed to fulfill requirements of wide-range reproduction under a great variety of conditions. Because of its excellent uniform polar response, it is especially useful in locations where ambient noise and severe reverberation exist. Added gain from the preamplifier plus uniform polar response makes this microphone ideally suited for long-throw boom applications. The Model 666 can also be used on a floor or desk stand or carried in the hand.
The microphone head features the exclusive Electro-Voice Acousalloy® diaphragm. This nonmetallic diaphragm produces smooth response over a wide frequency range and withstands high humidity, temperature extremes, corrosive effects of salt air, and severe mechanical shocks. It is practically indestructible with normal use.
