Capable of delivering an exceptionally smooth, flat frequency response with highly predictable proximity effect, the ART D7 large diaphragm dynamic microphone offers a musicality and tone not easily attainable with small diaphragm dynamic or condenser microphones. The unique character and versatility of a large diaphragm dynamic makes the ART D7 an essential addition to any live sound or studio engineer’s microphone toolkit.
In live sound and recording applications, the D7’s cardioid pattern offers excellent feedback rejection and isolation, making it an exceptional choice for powerful vocal applications and a wide range of solo instruments including background brass and low range bass woodwinds, acoustic stringed instruments like cello and bass, bass amps, high volume guitar amps, drums and percussion. It offers full frequency response at the front of the microphone with a very controlled and predictable proximity effect – the increased low frequency response when microphone is placed close to sound source.
Vocalists can use the proximity effect to their advantage, adding fullness and more ‘bottom end’ to the voice. Experienced vocalists can easily incorporate it as part of their overall microphone technique. This is exceptionally useful when the D7 is used as an announcement microphone in broadcast applications.
Integrated High Pass Filter and Midrange Boost switches on the D7 allow tailoring the microphone response for specific applications, adding versatility and ensuring accurate tone shaping at the source.
The microphone’s precision-tooled body and dent resistant stainless-steel wire-mesh windscreen offer unmatched long term reliability. The included shock-mount virtually eliminates vibration and handling noise, while at the same time safely securing the microphone in any position needed during use.
