VLM type-B, high gain capsule, excellent for toms, floor toms, and
Compact and lightweight, yet featuring full-size diaphragms, the
D Series microphones employ exclusive Sub-Impulse Technology
designed specifically to achieve the true 3-dimensional sound of
Sub- Impulse Technology builds on the principles of the VLM
diaphragm design to accurately pick up the subtle nuances of
sub-impulse harmonics. These harmonics contribute substantially to
the richness of the sound.
Basically, the lower mass of the diaphragm coupled with an
extra-sensitive internal air suspension allows the outer wall of
the diaphragm to react to sound waves, harmonics and sub-harmonics
quicker than other mics. The result is a faster, more precise
sampling of the original sound.
Housed in precision tooled blocks of pure aluminum, these mics
offer the size, weight and ruggedness required for instrument
A tight hypercardioid pickup pattern allows clear definition of
sound without the feedback problems commonly associated with
placing multiple mics in close proximity.
