Astatic Boundary AS930VPL overview

  • 1Description

The 930VPL Surface Mounted Boundary Microphone from Astatic is an ideal solution for speech and signal capturing on podiums, desktops, pulpits, etc. The condenser microphone features a flat, low-profile profile with two mounting holes located at the base. The continuously variable polar pattern control features cardioid, omnidirectional and figure eight patterns with variations between them.

A momentary membrane switch may be programmed for push-to-talk, push-to-mute and on/off operation. With its high gain before feedback and surface noise rejection, the 930VPW is an ideal surface microphone for boardrooms, classrooms, court proceedings, conferences and houses-of-worship. This boundary microphone features a TA4M output connector and comes with a TA4F to 3-pin XLR cable.

    Astatic Boundary AS930VPL reviews

    930VPL Continuously Variable Pattern Surface Mounted Boundary Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rich Sound, Great for Vocal Recording I discovered these microphones while working in video production at a private university where these were available for student checkout. These mics are so sensitive you can't use them for PA's work because they pick up the PA and cause feedback, but they are great for recording a lecture or voiceover digitally. They are also great for connecting to a video camera with Phantom Power and XLR inputs, like the Canon XLH1s, XL2, or Sony ZxU family. They work as a great compliment to a shotgun mic recording to tape on one channel, with the 930VP recording to the other channel. In post, both mono channels can be panned to Stereo to create a very rich and full sound. This mic comes with an incredibly long cord the variable polar pattern is a great plus!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance I used this mic with an H4N Zoom recorder to capture audio during a wedding ceremony. This combination allowed me to ditch some of the wires. The H4N has a phantom power setting which is required for this type of mic.
