  • Electro-Voice RE20 Broadcast Announcer Microphone with Variable-D

    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.

    Tailored Response
    Response tailored especially for vocals with high sound pressure handling capabilities
    Construction
    Rugged, steel construction with low handling noise
    Supercardioid Pattern
    The RE 20 features a supercardioid polar pattern which is extremely effective in isolating sound sources while reducing background noise
    Internal Windscreen
    An internal blast and wind filter eliminates "pop" and wind noise at the closest proximity
    Bass Tilt Down Switch
    The "bass tilt down" 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 proximities

  • 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.

    Studio quality microphone preamp/channel strip processor
    Classic dbx compression puts great sound within easy reach
    Frequency tunable de-esser reduces sibilance and high frequency distortion
    Enhancer increases the detail and definition of the high and low frequencies
    Program adaptive expander/gate
    Insert jack allows you to add an external processor
    Full complement of meters and status LEDs
    +48V phantom power
    Precision detented controls

  • 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

  • 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 (0-7mph). It also reduces vocal plosives in close microphone placement situations. Users can generally expect a 4dB to 8dB 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
    Senal UB-440
    Neumann U87, 103
    Rode NTK, NT1000, NT100, NT1

  • Auray BAE-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with External Springs & Integrated XLR Cable

    The Auray BAE-2X is a sturdy two-section broadcast arm with external springs. It's a versatile and practical accessory for professional and home studios, and is ideal for broadcasts, voiceovers or podcasts. The arm features an integrated 15' XLR cable.

    The BAE-2X is designed with a wide range of motion for precise microphone placement and minimal noise when repositioning the microphone. The external balance-spring design is precision-engineered to support microphones of up to 3.6 lb (1.6kg), and hold them in place. This broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that's compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when repositioning the arm - eliminating the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved.

    The heavy-duty combo mount, consisting of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy metal desktop mount, offers options for fastening the broadcast arm onto a desktop or permanent installation with the included mounting screws. The 14-inch riser is included to add height to the arm so that it extends over computer or studio monitors.

    The BAE-2X is a durable and reliable accessory for any studio or recording setup that provides secure support for your microphone along with excellent signal transfer, and won't disrupt your audio when being repositioned.
