A favorite of broadcasters worldwide.

The Electro-Voice RE20 Microphone is well-suited for recording and sound reinforcement applications. This Variable-D design dynamic cardioid microphone features a heavy-duty internal pop filter to reduce proximity effects, while an internal element shockmount reduces vibration-induced noise. Integral blast and wind filters cover each acoustic opening. The RE20 dynamic cardioid microphone is truly an industry standard, a firm favorite for broadcasting, podcasting, and sound engineering worldwide. Its popularity also extends into music production as a premium grade instrument microphone. Its Variable-D design and heavy-duty internal pop filter excel for close-in voice work, while an internal element shock-mount reduces vibration-induced noise.The Electro-Voice RE20 is the broadcast studio voice-over mic used b professionals for decades. Consistent and smooth across a wide spectrum of frequencies, and because it's a Continuously Variable-D mic, the RE20 is virtually free of the bass-boosting "proximity effect" in close micing. An easy "bass tilt down" switch corrects spectrum balance for use in long-reach situations or other bass attenuation applications, making this dynamic cardioid mic perfect for acoustic and electric bass, as well as a kick drum. A true cardioid microphone, the RE20 offers greatest rejection at 180º off-axis—directly to the rear of the microphone. Pattern control is so consistent that 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.An integral blast and wind filter covers each acoustic opening on the RE20. In recording sessions or onstage, singers can get close with their lips almost touching the grille screen with no worry of "P-pops" or excessive sibilance. Part of the filter acts as a shockmount to the internal microphone element, reducing the transfer of vibrations from external sources.A massive steel housing and effective humbucking coil assure the RE20's resistance to magnetically induced hum and noise. This means the RE20 can be used successfully in situations where other microphones would experience unacceptable levels of hum and buzz. By exploiting the strength of its steel housing and employing a mechanical nesting concept, the RE20 dynamic microphone is an exceptionally rugged microphone with superior noise rejection, ideally suited for professional uses.
