Electro-Voice RE20 overview

  • 1Description

The Electro-Voice RE20 Broadcast Announcer Mic with Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator Kit from B&H can be used in several applications, such as broadcasting, sound engineering, instrument recording, and voiceover work. The RE20 microphone features a dynamic cardioid polar pattern and has a heavy-duty internal pop filter for close-in voice work, while an internal element shock-mount reduces vibration-induced noise.

The included Cloudlifter CL-1 is an easy-to-use compact solution for passive microphones that uses a standard XLR microphone input to provide up to +25dB of ultra-clean transparent gain.

The B&H kit also includes an Auray SSM VC10 Microphone Suspension Shockmount, an Auray BAI-2N Broadcast Arm, a pack of Pearstone 0.5 x 6" Touch Fastener Straps, an XLR cable, and a Foam Windscreen.

  • Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator

    The Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator from Cloud Microphones is a compact, single-input solution for common audio problems in the field and in the studio involving low-output passive microphones, including ribbons. The CL-1 uses any standard phantom-powered mixer or microphone input device to provide up to +25 dB of clean, transparent gain. This improves signal-to-noise ratio and improves the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. The CL-1 is housed in a rugged steel enclosure which offers shielding and durability. Additionally, the CL-1 has provisions for stage or stand mounting.

    Transparent Gain
    Gives passive mics up to +25 dB additional active output and keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors. The CL-1 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source
    Useful for a Variety of Applications
    • Use with noisy or low-gain preamps
    • Use with mixers/preamps that negatively impact the sound at higher gain setting 
    • Use with low-output dynamic microphones and ribbons
    • Mic softer sound sources such as acoustic instruments and voice
    • Use for long cable runs
    Features at a Glance
    • Gives passive mics up to +25 dB additional active output
    • Provides 2 distinct stages of clean gain
    • Easy to use self-contained design requires only phantom power
    • Recommended for use with all passive dynamic microphones
    • Compatible with tube, battery, or power supply driven microphones  
    • Safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of phantom
    • Utilizes Patent Pending Class A, Discrete JFET circuitry
    • Ideal impedance loading for optimal performance @ 3 kOhms
    • Rugged, road ready, and portable, for studio, stage, and broadcasting

  • 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

  • Auray BAI-2N Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs

    The Auray BAI-2N is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs . 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-2N 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. (2.27 kg). 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-2N allows for precise microphone placement.

    The BAI-2N 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.
