In the world of broadcasting , the ElectroVoice RE20 Variable-D® dynamic cardioid microphone is truly an industry standard, a firm favorite among broadcasters and sound engineers worldwide. Its popularity also extends into music production as a premium grade instrument microphone. Its Variable-D design and heavy-duty internal P-pop filter reduce proximity effect, while an internal element shock-mount reduces vibration-induced noise. Odds are, you've seen it a million times before in television and movies and in front of the worlds most popular radio personalities. So why is this mic so special? Well mostly, it's 2 unique features:
1.the windscreen built INTO the grill handles both popping and sibilance
2.the exclusive "Variable-D" technology makes it immune to proximity effect, despite having a cardioid polar pattern
And somehow, the RE20 maintains a consistent frequency response at any angle. Yet at the same time, also rejecting unwanted noises.
Put simply.it sounds great, even on people with little to no experience behind a microphone. In the recording studio, it just might be one of the most essential tools in your arsenal. It has the reputation of being one of the most widely used mics when recording the kick drum as well. A "must have " for any mic closet!
