Hypercardioid dynamic microphone
Specifically designed to catch his guitar amp or drums.
The frequency range is 80-17000 Hz
He constructed "double-float" to limit handling noise and vibration
There are several overlapping grids for catches in proximity to very high volume without abusing the membrane.
The hull is metal and seems very solid.
It seems quite heavy
It comes with a padded leatherette cover very good and a clamp
I do not see what could be blamed on these characteristics.
I just learn to keep company with an Audio-Technica mb2k; I complete and accurate view this very empirical later.
I tested it on a guitar amp.
The first thing you see is mb2k compared to the output level a bit higher.
It is clear and articulate.
Transitions are considerably better than the mb2k.
We distinguish better attacks, and each note played much better spring than the mb2k.
The high mids and highs very quickly remind the sm57.
However, it is less fat than the low-sm57 medium.Ce that might disturb some taken from his saturated metal. The ATM650 is very precise and detailed on all frequencies.
He captures this sound very well. Just like the sm57 which is captured with the sources will break into the mix.
Like many of his loyal side distance. It feels good proximity effects, and placement in long or short distance from HP is noticeable (in the sense of fidelity).
Near HP, we have a very hand in your face "which I appreciate. For the music punchy, it's ideal.
Times for guitar amp, it is very good, really good. What's great is that proximity to high volume, we are not overly bothered by the side "boomy" low-medium, unlike the sm57 or mb2k. That makes the palm-mutes more manageable and more enjoyable in a mix.
It captures very well the harmonics, which in certain mediums that mb2k not even see happen.
For Rock, or funk guitars, it has all the qualities: it transmits very well the acid side, sharp and punchy.
With his character, I guess that snares must hit badly.
