VLM type-B, high gain capsule, excellent for toms, floor toms, and congas.
Compact and lightweight, yet featuring full-size diaphragms, the D Series microphones employ exclusive Sub-Impulse Technology designed specifically to achieve the true 3-dimensional sound of instruments.
Sub- Impulse Technology builds on the principles of the VLM diaphragm design to accurately pick up the subtle nuances of sub-impulse harmonics. These harmonics contribute substantially to the richness of the sound.
Basically, the lower mass of the diaphragm coupled with an extra-sensitive internal air suspension allows the outer wall of the diaphragm to react to sound waves, harmonics and sub-harmonics quicker than other mics. The result is a faster, more precise sampling of the original sound.
Housed in precision tooled blocks of pure aluminum, these mics offer the size, weight and ruggedness required for instrument mics.
A tight hypercardioid pickup pattern allows clear definition of sound without the feedback problems commonly associated with placing multiple mics in close proximity.
