E-V finds its voice with ND Series microphones

Published:

After a long period of focusing on portable loudspeakers and large-format sound reproduction, Electro-Voice has made its return to the microphone sector with the successor to its long-running N/Dym Series. Named the ND Series, the updated range has reportedly been designed with specific applications in mind – each of the eight models is intended for a unique purpose.

The series comprises four vocal and four instrument models for both live performance and studio use. More specifically, the dynamic models for vocalists incorporate a large-diaphragm, shock-mounted capsule that builds on the previous N/Dym design, plus Memraflex grilles and humbucking coils to reject EMF noise. Each model has been optimised, the manufacturer states, ‘according to venue size and/or stage volume’ – three typical scenarios are addressed via differing polar patterns, capsule voicing and grille shapes.

More specifically, the cardioid ND76 and ND76S (which boasts an on/off switch), are meant for use in small to medium-sized venues, delivering a pronounced upper-mid-range presence. The ND86 is intended for large concert and festival-sized venues, with a supercardioid pattern and reduced sensitivity to specific off-axis frequencies, particularly stage noise. The fourth in the range, the ND96, has been designed for ‘loud stages of any size’, with high gain before feedback via a supercardioid pattern, a ‘tailored frequency curve’ and a squared-off grille for close placement.

Of the instrument models, three are dynamic while one is a small diaphragm condenser. The ND44 is a clip-on dynamic for use with tom-tom and snare drums, or guitar cabinets. The larger ND46 is meant for use with more general instruments and boasts a locking pivot mechanism for accurate positioning. The small-diaphragm condenser is the ND66, described by the manufacturer as the ‘only one of its kind on the market’. Finally, the ND68 dynamic has been voiced for use with kick drums with minimal equalisation.
