Electro Voice 419 Microphone stand
Description and Applications
The Electro-Voice Model 664 is a cardioid microphone of the dynamic type with only one moving element. It is designed specifically for public address applications. The cardioid pattern is obtained through use of three sound entrances located in the back of the diaphragm. These three sound entrances, each utilizing the proper acoustical impedance, combine to form one effective back entrance which varies in distance from the diaphragm inversely with frequency. The resulting phase and amplitude conditions produce a uniform cardioid pattern over a wide frequency range. This variable front-to-back distance along with dynamic-type construction affords high resistance to mechanical shock and eliminates proximity effect.
The Model 664 is an all-purpose public address microphone designed to fulfill requirements of wide-range reproduction under a great variety of conditions. Because of its excellent and uniform polar response, it is especially useful in locations where acoustic feedback, ambient noise, and severe reverberation exist. The preferred instrument for serious home and semi-professional recording, the 664 is also an ideal choice for quality sound reinforcement systems, particularly where acoustic problems exist. It is equipped with a pop-proof wire mesh grille which minimizes wind and breath blasts. The Model 664 may be used on a floor or desk stand or carried in the hand. This all-purpose microphone features the exclusive Electro-Voice Acoustalloy® diaphragm. The non-metallic diaphragm permits smooth response over a wide frequency range and withstands high humidity, temperature extremes, severe mechanical shocks, and the corrosive effects of salt air. It is practically indestructible with normal use.
Singer should have a good microphone
Shure SM58 is a classic, and takes a fair amount of abuse. Also a 20-30' XLR (3-pin) cable and a quality microphone stand. I've cheapened out on the stand and it's not worth the few bucks you'll save. If the microphone doesn't come bundled with one, you'll need a clip to hold the mic to the top of the stand.
A self-powered monitor speaker would be handy for practices, if you have the money. One of those wedge-style speakers that sits on the floor in front of the microphone stand. I specify self-powered -- which means it has an amplifier built in -- because that gives you (effectively) a mini-PA for use in practices
'AIR AMERICA' CHAOS
HBO is set to air a behind the scenes look at the launching of liberal radio network AIR AMERICA.
LEFT OF THE DIAL, a grossly entertaining docu-drama of life on the other side of the AIR AMERICA microphone.
The doubts. The lies. The bounced checks. The heartbreak.
The viewer is taken upclose to witness the ugly business of media ambition.
The main character, Evan Cohen, founding chairman and main investor, is depicted as a complete fraud.
The documentary shows Cohen arriving in the middle of night at AIR AMERICA offices to sign over the company and disappear again, but not before lying about how many ads have been sold and how much money is the bank [zero]
