The Isobel is a large diaphragm Studio microphone with a fixed cardiod directional characteristic. The integral head grill both lowers manufacturing time and costs as well as ensuring rigidity and strength that is needed in a professional setting.
The Isobel provides exceptional sound transmission on sources such as Voiceovers, Vocal duties, stringed instruments and room micing. The Isobel is a side address microphone. The stand out features of this microphone are very low self noise, strong CMRR (common mode rejection) and clean yet surprisingly musical sound transmission.
Electrical characteristics and Safety
Like with any good microphone, the Isobelís impedance multiplying/amplification circuit is very transparent and has no direct hold over the overall tone of the microphone. The Isobelís tone is derived from the capsule as there is no equalisation manipulation within the microphone circuit. The Isobel requires an operating voltage of 48v commonly known as phantom power. This operating voltage is a standard part of all good microphone preamplifiers and once applied, the microphone will be operational within a few seconds.
The Isobel is Elastically suspended using a supplied mounting system ensuring both electrical and acoustic isolation. This style of mounting provides both sonic and safety benefits.
