N/D478

Dynamic cardioid instrument & amplifier microphone

  • Outstanding choice for electric guitar/bass guitar amplifier, toms, snare, cymbals, hi-hat, brass and acoustic guitar
  • Dynamic, high-sensitivity neodymium element
  • Cardioid pattern for superior feedback rejection and acoustic isolation
  • VOB technology provides tailored bass response for controlled “proximity effect”

More durable and natural sounding than the other  “industry standard” instrument mic, the N/D478 is ideal for miking drums, percussion or guitar amplifiers. Its integrated VOB technology reduces resonant distortion at low frequencies. The N/D478 also does a great job as a vocal microphone.
