The Golden Age Project D2 is a versatile large-diaphragm dynamic microphone that is useful for stage, studio, and broadcast applications.
For live performance, its high-output dynamic capsule provides a big, powerful sound, and its cardioid polar pattern gives it a focused pickup that helps minimize feedback. In the studio, the D2 excels as an all-purpose mic for such sources as vocals, kick drum, electric bass, percussion, and more. For broadcast, the D1's tone—in conjunction with the proximity effect you get from its cardioid pattern—gives you that "larger-than-life" sound for voice-overs and other spoken-word applications.
The mic is equipped with three separate filters, each with its own on/off switch, which make it possible to tailor the D2's frequency response for specific applications. Two of the three are bass roll-off filters that help you shape the low end. The first cuts 3 dB at 120 Hz and 5 dB at 50 Hz. The second cuts 3 dB at 210 Hz and 10 dB at 100 Hz. The third filter affects the presence range, cutting by a maximum of 4 dB at 5 kHz. The D2 features an integrated stand adapter.
