Electro-Voice RE20 Broadcast Announcer Microphone with Variable-D (Fawn Beige)
A broadcast industry standard, the RE20 Broadcast Announcer Microphone with Variable-D from Electro-Voice is a cardioid dynamic microphone that delivers reliable, low-noise performance with exceptional clarity and definition. This model is styled in the classic fawn beige finish.
The RE20's response is tailored especially for vocals with high sound pressure handling capabilities. It also performs exceptionally well in recording low and loud sound sources like kick drums, bass cabinets, and brass instruments. The microphone has a rugged, all-steel housing construction with very low handling noise, 100% made in the USA.
True Cardioid Pattern
The RE20 features a cardioid polar pattern with no coloration at 180-degrees off-axis—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. This makes it able to capture the most consistent vocal takes of any microphone we've tested, especially as the performer moves in the booth, or needs to turn their head slightly to read lyrics on a phone or music stand.
An internal blast and wind filter eliminate pop and wind noise at the closest proximity. In recording sessions or on stage, singers can "close talk" the microphone, singing with their lips almost touching the grille screen with no worry of "P-pops" or excessive sibilance.
Bass Tilt-Down Switch
The bass tilt switch corrects spectrum balance for use in long-reach situations and eliminates low-frequency noise and rumble.
Flat Frequency Response
The RE20's flat frequency response remains flat even at extremely close proximity, making it ideal for vocalists and voiceover artists who prefer to move while recording because of the emotion of their performance.
