RE 420


The RE420 is a premium-grade, high-performance, condenser cardioid vocal microphone. Designed to reveal the exceptional detail and vivid clarity synonymous with condenser elements, it skillfully delivers the lyrical finesse required for expressive vocal performances.

The sonic signature is rich, detailed and full-bodied, with a warm and clear low end, natural and present midrange, and an open, crisp and detailed high end. The cardioid pattern provides excellent acoustic isolation. Maximum feedback rejection occurs when a stage monitor is positioned 180 off-axis to the element. This pattern also allows for a comfortable working range around the microphone making expressive microphone techniques easy.

The multi-stage pop filter consists of two layers of dense foam separated by air, which attenuates wind velocity caused by breath and windblasts. The high-pass filter has two positions (see drawing). The flat position delivers the full frequency band pass of the capsule. The high-pass position attenuates frequencies below 150 Hz.
The internal shock mount isolates the microphone element from vibration and guards against handling noise.

• Premium condenser element delivers a highly detailed, rich, and full bodied sound
• Cardioid polar pattern provides excellent acoustic isolation with a comfortable working range
• Multi-stage pop filter minimizes breath blasts and plosives
• Selectable high-pass filter reduces undesirable low frequency content when engaged
• Vibration-absorbing internal shock mount minimizes handling noise
