Designed specifically for horns, drums, acoustical and electric guitars, the N/D468 provides a smooth, natural sound, capturing the excitement of the instrument. The supercardioid pattern provides superior rejection and acoustic isolation in any application. An innovative EV design harnesses the increased power of a neodymium based magnet design, allowing a large-diameter voice coil (up to 50% larger than other mics) for dynamic, efficient microphone performance. N/DYMr offers the power and clarity to "cut through the mix." Whatever your instrument application the N/D468 is sure to be a top performer.
The low frequency response of the N/D468 microphone varies with the distance from the sound source. Known as "proximity effect," maximum bass response is produced in "close-up" use with the microphone 1/4 inch from the sound source. Normal bass response is experienced with working distances greater than 24 inches. Working close to the microphone will produce a more robust sound. Close up positioning of the microphone will also reduce the potential for feedback from the sound reinforcement system. When close miced, the bass-boost provides an increase in overall microphone output level. The mixer gain may be proportionately reduced, resulting in a reduction of the system's sensitivity to feedback caused by sound entering the microphone from the loudspeakers.
