ElectroVoice launches PL series mics
Inspired by the PL legacy that began in the 1970's, the new 2008 PL Series features seven vocal models and three instrument models.
All PL Series models feature a unique non-reflective textured satin finish, fine mesh Memraflex™ grills, shock-mounted capsules for low handling noise, and polar patterns chosen to deliver sonic performance with minimal off-axis complications.
PL Series Vocal Group
The entry-level dynamic supercardioid PL24 and PL24S (switched version) offer all around vocal clarity in any live sound application. The PL44 is a dynamic supercardioid voice-contoured for transparency and high-mid lift. The dynamic supercardioid PL80a is robust, forgiving, and EQ-friendly, delivering up-front vocal placement in professional sound applications. The PL80c maintains all of the sonic characteristics of the PL80a, with the added cosmetic detail of the "Classic" PL finish reminiscent of the legacy PL80 from years ago. And the condenser cardioid PL84 and PL84S (switched version) are carefully voiced for intimate detail and presence, enhancing the creative expression of professional vocalists.
PL Series Instrument Group
The dynamic supercardioid PL33 kick drum and low frequency instrument microphone delivers all the tight low-end and punctuation needed for today's sound requirements. Putting a new angle on drum mic'ing, the dynamic supercardioid PL35 is designed and voiced for tom and snare mic'ing, with a unique physical design that eliminates the need for right-angle XLR connectors, minimizing cable clutter over the drum. Rounding-out the instrument line-up, PL37 small diaphragm condenser cardioid overhead cymbal and instrument microphone crisply captures all of the performance detail of overhead drums, percussion, and acoustic instruments.
