Introducing our RV4’s, a pair high quality (small diaphragm) pencil condenser microphones. Featuring a smooth, flat frequency response and a cardioid polar pattern. As a result, ithey will reproduce an accurate, uncoloured representation of your original sound source. Furthermore, you can choose whether to power the microphones using either phantom power or by using an on-board battery (AA). Consequently, the RV4 Pencil Condenser Microphones are suitable for a variety of sound reinforcement and recording applications. Also, please don’t be fooled by the price! Our RV4 small diaphragm pencil condenser microphones can hold their own with mics that cost way more! Give it a try!
There are a wide range of instruments to which the RV4’s are suited. Most notably, it will produce fantastic results on acoustic instruments. Examples include:
- Drums / Percussion1
If you are looking for a stunning acoustic guitar sound, look no further We have had amazing results by experimenting with differing mic placements. For example, place the first microphone over the shoulder of the player, near the sound hole. A second RV4 pencil condenser microphone can be placed further down the neck. Mix these two sound sources for a beautiful balance sound.
Often, a pencil condenser microphone would not be an obvious first choice when it comes to vocals. Conversely, the RV4 is a great choice for vocal recordings, particularly recordings of live performance hence its great flexibility. In particular, use it to record choirs, groups and ensembles. Additionally, it works extremely well for live sound, again for amplifying choirs, groups and ensembles.
