EV ELECTROVOICE V-1 VINTAGE RIBBON MICROPHONE WITH YOKE AND CABLE
Sorry, this item is out of stock
Electro-Voice velocity microphones are based on proven design and are extremely durable. The frame and internal mounting structure is a single piece, high-pressure die casting. Jars and mechanical shock cannot cause shifting of parts. This is an exclusive feature of all Electro-Voice velocity microphones. The microphone cradle is steel reinforced. Knurled knobs at the sides permit locking the microphone firmly in any position.
The open housing virtually eliminates internal reflection and diffraction. This assures full utilization of the velocity microphone’s high fidelity characteristic. True reproduction without imposed peaks and dips is the result of an efficient magnetic circuit and the Acoustalloy® diaphragm which provides a smoother response over a wider frequency range. Proper coordination of ribbon fabrication, pole piece design, magnetic circuit placement and correct transformer coupling provide a high fidelity response characteristic. The frequency response curve is ideally adapted to voice and music reproduction.
The bidirectional characteristic of the velocity gives equal pick-up at the front and back of the microphone, and zero pick-up at the sides, top, and bottom. For all practical purposes the frequency response remains constant at all angles. The null or zero pick-up at the sides gives the velocity microphone the following advantages:
Pick-up is increased 1.7 times over that of the conventional pressure microphone for average conditions of reverberation, acoustic feedback and room noise. For public address applications this pick-up range may be increased considerably through proper placement of speakers so that direct and reflected sounds strike the microphone at the null points (sides, top or bottom).
Random room noise and reverberation are reduced 5 dB.
The microphone may be placed so as to almost completely eliminate unwanted sounds.
Acoustic feedback can be further reduced by tilting the microphone to place the null sides in the direction of the interfering sounds.
The microphone can be worked from both front and back simultaneously.
E-V velocity microphones are recommended for all types of music and voice reproduction… in public address, broadcasting and recording. Wide frequency response, high fidelity characteristics, wide-range front pick-up and pick-up range make these microphones ideal for solo or orchestra—for individual or chorus—for single speaker or groups. Very popular with singers and band leaders. Mounted in footlights or on overhead booms, they are used in reinforcing stage plays.
The Model V-2 offers a choice of one standard impedance: Hi-Z, 50, 200, 250, or 500 ohms (this mic is the Hi-Z version). Flat frequency response from 40 to 9,000 hertz. Output level is –62 dB.
Polar Pattern: Bidirectional voltage output proportional to cosine of angle of pick-up. For all practical purposes, the frequency response remains constant at all angles of pick-up.
