This low-profile Peavey VCM 3 Choir Microphone is designed primarily to be suspended above choirs, ensembles, or stage areas. Premium sound reinforcement with virtually no visual distraction! The microphone's back- electret condenser capsule offers a smooth, tailored frequency response with a cardioid pickup pattern that is highly effective in suppressing feedback and unwanted noise. The flexible steel-spring hanging adapter facilitates positioning when the mic is suspended by its cable. Peavey's VCM 3 microphone comes with a 33', small-diameter cable, so it's barely noticeable. The cable connects to a compact output module that adapts the smaller QG-type connector to a typical 3-pin XLR for use with a standard mic cable. The adapter runs on 9V-52V phantom power.
