This phantom electret microphone is particularly suitable for use when voices need to be picked up and amplified outdoors, e.g. for amplifying a bride and groom at a wedding ceremony or when making a film.
It has a switchable polar pattern, meaning you can set it to 'normal/cardioid' so it picks up more sound directly from the direction in which it is pointing, or 'tele/supercardiod' so it picks up sound from front left and right. Neither setting particularly picks up sound from behind the microphone.
It can be powered by an AA battery if mains power is not available. If mains power is available it can be powered from a mixing desk with phantom power supply or from a stand-alone phantom power supply.
- Particularly suitable for outdoor recordings, e.g. in film productions
