Electro-Voice RE420 Condenser Cardioid Vocal Microphone

The Electro-Voice RE420 is a premium-grade, high-performance, condenser cardioid vocal microphone. Specifically, it reveals the exceptional detail and vivid clarity synonymous with condenser elements, it skillfully delivers the lyrical finesse required for expressive vocal performances.

Rich Detail

The RE420 sonic signature is rich, detailed and full-bodied, with a warm and clear low end, a natural and present midrange, and an open, crisp and detailed high end. Furthermore, the cardioid pattern provides excellent acoustic isolation. Maximum feedback rejection occurs when a stage monitor is positioned 180° off-axis to the element. This pattern also allows for a comfortable working range around the microphone making expressive microphone techniques easy.

Pop and High Pass Filter

The multi-stage pop filter of the RE420 consists of two layers of dense foam separated by air, which attenuates wind velocity caused by breath and windblasts. In fact, the high-pass filter has two positions (see drawing). The flat position delivers the full frequency bandpass of the capsule. Additionally, the high-pass position attenuates frequencies below 150 Hz.

Internal Shockmount

Lastly, the internal shock mount isolates the microphone element from vibration and guards against handling noise.
