« RE20 with a smaller body. »Publié le 04/24/11 à 05:45
For years, I've had several.
What thing do you like most/least about it?
It is excellent for the spoken voice, or where the intelligibility is important.
For radio, web radio, singing, stage, the speeches. But it is really excellent in terms as instruments! Sax, Guitar ... Anything goes, ultra versatile, ultra strong.
It is also totally insensitive to wind noise off-axis (perfect for use in a home studio). So, no need to put a filter or a pop up bonnet. it is already built.
This is an update of the venerable RE15, which was the microphone Elvis favorite. The BBC used them as much, and still uses them.
The least? We hear rumors of manipulation if it is by holding in his hand moves.
Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I could compare it with the RE20, which is much more expensive and larger, well I did not hear a difference, that the excellent RE16 has a higher sound level, which avoids the use with a pre amp nasa. It has the same technology as the RE20, Variable D. They are similar.
What is your opinion about the value for the price? Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ..
Little known in France as poorly distributed, it is a classic in the USA. The price / quality ratio is excellent. It is less expensive than the RE20, with similar results. Probably one of the best vocal microphones / speaking voice in the marketplace.
