Pro Co Sound DXF overview

  • 1Description

The MBT-2 Microphone Bridging Transformer from Pro Co Sound is a carefully designed, custom-built 1:1:1 microphone bridging transformer whose characteristics are optimized for use with balanced low-impedance microphones or similar sources. Special winding techniques and a high-permeability (80% nickel) core lamination preserve full frequency response while minimizing signal losses and other "loading" effects. Mu metal can and separate electrostatic shields for primary (input) and each secondary (output) winding reduce capacitive coupling of ground-borne electrical noise between main, stage monitor and recording or broadcast feed mixers, eliminating annoying 60-Hz hum and buzz. The source impedance of the MBT-2 is very similar to that of a low-impedance microphone to ensure proper matching to the input circuitry of the mixers. The result is clean transient response (minimal overshoot or ringing) and low distortion even at low frequencies and high input levels..
