The Model 111 features a tailored vocal/instrument response following the well-defined industry standard of an upper midrange frequency boost for professional vocal microphones. As a result, this microphone is an excellent choice for relatively close sound source mic’ing (singing or speaking closer to the microphone). This is because even with a full proximity effect bass boost, the upper midrange can still “keep up,” providing a solid, projected tone. As a further enhancement, a bass-boost ring is included to enable even more fine-tuned adjustment of the proximity effect. A built-in spherical filter minimizes wind and breath "pop" noise, while a super-cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source and minimizes unwanted background noise. A rugged construction ensures that the Model 111 will perform consistently and reliably. This microphone is most often used in moderate to high volume environments, which is consistent with it’s favorability for close mic’ing. Includes microphone with preprogrammed sound processor, microphone carrying bag, user guide, programming guide, and six extra shunts for programming.
