The Model 588SDX is a ball-type, dual-impedance, cardioid (unidirectional) dynamic microphone that provides excellent voice reproduction. Its spherical grille is a very effective wind and pop filter which is especially good when used for closeup vocal miking.
This microphone is highly suited for speech or music pickup in schools, churches, and meeting rooms. Its unidirectional polar pattern greatly reduces feedback problems, permitting operation closer than usual to loudspeakers without the annoying squeal or howl caused by feedback. The microphone is equipped with a lockable ON/OFF switch and an internal impedance selection socket located on the XLR connector for switching between high and low impedance. A slip-in swivel adapter is supplied for the convenience of stand-mounted use.
Controlled low-frequency response combined with a smooth high-frequency rise for clear and intelligible voice pickup
Symmetrical cardioid pickup pattern minimizes feedback
Spherical grille provides effective filtering out of breath noise and popping when used for closeup vocals, and of wind noise when used outdoors
Neodymium magnet for high signal-to-noise ratio
Shock-mounted cartridge for quiet operation and low stand/ handling noise
Lockable ON/OFF switch
