Overview

Building on the legacy of the Electro-voice RE20, one of the most widely used studio mics of all time, the RE320 is a professional quality dynamic microphone designed specifically for recording and sound reinforcement applications requiring extremely low noise and the highest level of predictable tonal and transient response. Ideal for capturing vocal and instrument sources; the RE320 delivers unparalleled detail, dynamic content, and natural tone.

Variable D is Electro-Voice's exclusive solution to the tonal changes associated with the proximity effect found in other directional microphones. Providing balanced and uniform frequency response up to 180 degrees off-axis, the result is always stable and linear tonal performance-even when the sound source is moving around the mic. Ideal for capturing the critical details of voice, amplified, and acoustic instruments, Variable-D capsules deliver impeccably smooth and natural tone on virtually any sound source.

Utilizing the same humbucking coil technology found in the RE20 and RE27N/D, which arrests electromagnetic field interference introduced by sources close to the microphone, the RE320 produces an ultra-quiet signal path free from the hum and buzz found in other dynamic microphones.

The RE320 incorporates a two-position "Dual Personality" frequency response switch that allows engagement of two vastly different performance curves.

All-Around Performer - Quality Dynamic Mic for Many Applications

By ADAM LANSKY

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about Electro-Voice RE320 Voice & Instrument Mic w Kick Drum Switch:

I recently had the opportunity to experiment with the Electro-Voice RE320 & am impressed by its flexibility. This dynamic mic is an all-around performer that can be used on a wide variety of sound sources with good results. It has a fast transient response for a dynamic mic & can be used in almost any genre of music, audio broadcast system, or live performance. While I had time to work with this mic, I put it to use in many situations. The RE320 was used as a vocal mic in a national poetry competition here in Little Rock hosted by the Arkansas Arts Council. The RE320 has a memorable appearance & was loved by all performers at the poetry competition for it's unique look & sound -- they had never used such a classy mic at a competition before. The RE320 is housed in an intimidating metal casing reminiscent of Darth Vader's wardrobe & looks/feels like it could take a serious beating. Poets loved how their voices sounded & took note of the mic for sure. I used the RE320 on saxophone in a live concert setting with local 21st century jazz band Foliage. The sax player has always used an SM58 because that's mostly what is available & he uses what's in the clubs. We set up the RE320 & he was very excited to try something new. We were all surprised by the beefy sound & ease of implementation in the live setting. The RE320 puts out a significantly hotter signal than a typical dynamic mic but did not create any feedback problems. The sax player found it much easier to play with & appreciated the high-frequency clarity that he never hears with the club's standard mics. On kick drums, the midrange attenuator switch is well-designed & helps duck out unwanted boxy frequencies that are otherwise unflattering. Placed outside the kick right on the beater, the RE320 provides necessary attack & rounded bottom-end that contributes to a kick-in-the-throat sound I seek. I combined this mic with a KSM32 on the exterior front of the kick drum for a vintage jazzy tone while recording with Foliage. On rack tom & floor toms the RE320 provides a solid sound that is not hyped. This mic has an impressive dynamic range & with proper compression, an engineer can easily achieve the punchy tone we all listen for. The RE320's low end is tight & the microphone is responsive & detailed across all frequencies with the high end naturally rolling off above 15kHz. Even with high gain, there is really no self-noise to speak of & this is a good sign of a high-quality design. I believe this mic would also pair quite well with electric guitar as a classier alternative to the status-quo SM57 as well as brass instruments like trumpet & trombone. Stick it in front of a bass cab & grab that low end without losing the articulation of picking style. This microphone is an excellent dynamic transducer & anyone that needs an all-around performer will benefit greatly by putting one in your collection.

Comments about Electro-Voice RE320 Voice & Instrument Mic w Kick Drum Switch:

Howdy from Austin Texas. This is the best product on the market for broadcast, vocals or mid to low frequency instruments ever made at any price. Just buy this treasure and discover the hidden world of non 48 volt powered sonic excellence. This guy has changed the way I view the front end process. Wade
