Anaheim, CA (January 14, 2011)—Electro-Voice has released the RE320, drawing from its RE20 and RE27N/D Broadcast Group mics to create a studio and live performance mic for the MI marketplace.
The RE320’s key features include Electro-Voice’s Variable-D proximity control technology which affects tonal performance; a patented humbucking coil for reputedly noiseless operation; and a high-output neodymium magnet structure capsule.
Rounding out the feature set is the new “dual personality” switch; one setting of the switch engages a response curve for voice and most instrument miking, while the other switch position activates a response curve designed specifically for kick drums with dips and peaks in traditional spots.
Regarding the switch, Electro-Voice’s Rick Belt comments, “We’ve known for many years that the RE20 is sought-after for miking kick drums, despite its broadcast vocal ‘original purpose.’ Adding the kick drum curve switch position as a key RE320 feature reinforces its usefulness as a specialty instrument mic, in addition to its outstanding performance on voice and low-mid to upper-register instruments in the alternate switch position.”
