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.

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&H # ELRE20). The shock mount shown with the RE20 in black finish is the Electro-Voice 309A (B&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.
