Offering podcasters, show hosts, and broadcasters the impactful sound of FM radio voices along with smooth, professional-looking mic positioning, this B&H Kit features the fawn beige Electro-Voice RE20 dynamic broadcast announcer microphone, the dbx 286s preamp/channel strip, a suspension shockmount, a foam windscreen, and a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated XLR cable.

The RE20 delivers voice-tailored frequency response, minimal proximity effect, and sonic performance akin to a studio condenser mic, and the foam windscreen helps control noise from blasts of air such as plosives. The dbx 286s provides up to 60 dB of gain along with all the functions you need to achieve a robust and present sound; its compressor, de-esser, high-pass filter, enhancer, and expander/gate are effective and easy to use. The combination of the suspension shockmount and the broadcast arm yields low noise as you adjust the mic's placement while providing the appearance of a video-ready setup.

Electro-Voice RE20 Broadcast Announcer Microphone with Variable-D (Fawn Beige)

A broadcast industry standard, the RE20 Broadcast Announcer Microphone with Variable-D from Electro-Voice is a cardioid dynamic microphone that delivers reliable, low-noise performance with exceptional clarity and definition. This model is styled in the classic fawn beige finish.

Tailored Response

Response tailored especially for vocals with high sound pressure handling capabilities.

Construction

Rugged, steel construction with low handling noise.

True Cardioid Pattern

The RE20 features a cardioid polar pattern with no coloration at 180-degrees off-axis—the frequency response is nearly independent of angular location of the sound source, creating virtually no off-axis coloration, yet providing the greatest possible rejection of unwanted sounds.

Internal Windscreen

An internal blast and wind filter eliminates pop and wind noise at the closest proximity. In recording sessions or on stage, singers can "close talk" the microphone, singing with their lips almost touching the grille screen with no worry of "P-pops" or excessive sibilance.

Bass Tilt-Down Switch

The bass tilt switch corrects spectrum balance for use in long-reach situations and eliminates low frequency noise and rumble.

Flat Frequency Respone

The RE20's flat frequency response remains flat even at extremely close proximity.

dbx 286s - Microphone Preamp/Channel Strip

The 286s from dbx is a full featured channel strip that includes a studio quality microphone/instrument preamplifier, and four processors that can be used independently or in any combination. The hassle of patching together multiple processors for use on one track can be frustrating. The unit delivers the entire microphone processing chain needed in a single box, with the shortest, cleanest signal path.

Features include wide-ranging input gain control, switchable +48V phantom power, and an 80Hz high-pass filter to remove low frequency hum, rumble or wind. The dbx OverEasy compressor can transparently smooth out uneven acoustic tracks, or deliver the classic "in your face" vocal performance. Vocal sibilance can be tamed or even eliminated and high frequency distortion removed from instruments such as cymbals with the frequency tunable De-Esser.

The Enhancer provides both HF Detail and LF Detail controls that can add sparkle and crispness to vocals, while making adjustments to the low frequencies for adding fullness and depth to vocals and bass instruments. Muddy low midrange frequencies can be cleaned and the separate threshold and ratio controls on the Expander/Gate allow for subtly reducing headphone leakage, or radically gate noisy guitar amplifiers.

The channel strip provides a full complement of metering and status LEDs. The XLR microphone input accepts balanced or unbalanced inputs, allowing for easily connecting professional or home studio microphones. The 1/4" TRS line input can accept balanced/unbalanced signals to process live electronic instruments or pre-recorded tracks at mix-down, while an insert jack provides access to the signal flow between the preamp and the processing sections for connection to external processors.

Auray SSM-BC10 Microphone Suspension Shockmount (Black Matte)

The black matte SSM-BC10 Microphone Suspension Shockmount from Auray is designed to keep your front-address microphone free from vibrations and noise that can often affect broadcast and voiceover applications. The heavy-duty bands isolate your microphone, eliminating the vibrations that can travel through your mic stand or broadcast arm.

The shockmount is equipped with a standard 5/8"-27 threaded socket and fits most mic stands and broadcast arms. Its locking knob and protective inner ring secure your mic in place while protecting its finish. The swiveling basket allows for precise microphone placement.

Eliminates Noise

The SSM-BC10 prevents unwanted vibrations that can radiate through a mic stand or broadcast arm from disrupting your broadcast or recording.

Swiveling Basket with Tension Knobs

The swiveling basket provides precise microphone positioning. Dual tension knobs maintain the angle of the microphone while still allowing smooth repositioning.

5/8"-27 Thread

The SSM-BC10 features a mic stand adapter with a standard 5/8"-27 thread that is compatible with most mic stands and broadcast arms.

Locking Knob with Inner Ring

The locking knob holds the microphone firmly in place. The inner ring applies uniform pressure to the outside of the microphone and prevents damage to the microphone finish

All-Metal Construction

The SSM-BC10 is a durable studio accessory that is built to last. The all-metal construction assures security and protection for the microphone.

Heavy-Duty Elastic Bands

The heavy-duty elastic bands suspend the microphone in the center of the basket, and prevent shocks and vibrations that can radiate through the mic stand or broadcast arm from reaching the microphone.

Black Matte Finish

Using the SSM-BC10 for on-air broadcast, the black matte finish will not reflect lights into the cameras.

For Front-Address Microphones

The SSM-BC10 fits front-address microphones such as the Electro-Voice RE20 and RE320 and the Heil Sound PR 40.

Auray WCF-UB440 Foam Windscreen for Large Diaphragm Condenser Mics

The Auray WCF-UB440 Foam Windscreen for the Senal UB-440 is made from specialty acoustic foam designed to reduce broadband wind noise with minimal high frequency loss. The density of the foam is optimized to help protect the microphone element from vocal plosives and wind pressure without dramatically muffling the sound.

This windscreen is effective indoors for protection against drafts caused by air conditioners and can be used in calm to light outdoor breeze conditions (0 to 7 mph). It also reduces vocal plosives in close microphone placement situations. Users can generally expect a 4 to 8 dB reduction in wind noise, with very slight dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the very slight high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the notable wind noise reduction.

The WCF-UB440's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen has a height of 3.5" and is designed to fit over the Senal UB-440 as well as mics from AKG, Shure, Neumann, Mi-Tek, MXL, Behringer, SE Electronic, Rode, and most other large diaphragm condensers with a grill diameter of larger than 2".

The WCF-UB440 Foam Windscreen for the Senal UB-440 is an effective solution for basic wind protection.

Fits these and other similar sized microphones:

AKG 414, 420, C2000, 220, 120
Shure KSM44A, KSM32/SL, SM27, PG42

Auray BAI-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs and Integrated XLR Cable

The Auray BAI-2X is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated XLR cable. This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.

The BAI-2X broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2X allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2X also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.

The photos show it with a shock mount, does it actually come with it?
Asked by: zach
No, the shock mount is not included. The RE20 comes with a mic stand adapter which you can see in the photo of the RE20 in fawn beige finish (B&amp;H # ELRE20). The shock mount shown with the RE20 in black finish is the Electro-Voice 309A (B&amp;H # EL309A) which is available separately.

question

Does it need a cloudlifter preamp to boost gain for better quality?
Asked by: Anonymous
The microphone sensitivity is listed as 1.5 mV/Pa. You can find a concersion calculator through google that puts that at -56.5dB. Check the gain specs on your interface or preamp. if you have about 56dB of gain, you won't need a preamp.
