Electro-Voice ND SeriesElectro-Voice has released the ND Series of wired vocal and instrument microphones. The successor to the N/Dym Series, the new mics expand the range with four vocal and four instrument models for live performance and studio applications.

ND Series dynamic vocal microphones are designed to address three distinct application scenarios, and are differentiated by polar pattern, capsule voicing and grille shape. At the heart of the new line is a large-diaphragm capsule design which takes the technology of the original N/Dym capsule and offers models optimised according to venue size and/or stage volume. The series features Memraflex grilles, humbucking coils to guard against EMF noise and shock-mounted capsules to minimize handling noise.

The ND76 and ND76S (with on/off switch) are designed for small to medium-sized venues, with a cardioid polar pattern and pronounced upper-mid-range presence. The ND86 will perform well in large concert and festival-sized venues, with a controlled supercardioid polar pattern and reduced sensitivity to specific off-axis frequencies, particularly stage noise. The ND96 is for loud stages of any size, with extremely high gain-before-feedback that pushes vocals through the mix. It achieves this with a supercardioid polar pattern, a tailored frequency curve and a squared-off grille that allows a singer to get close to the capsule.

The ND44 is a lightweight clip-on dynamic mic that is for tom-tom and snare drums. The mounting clip ensures quick, secure placement on drum rims, while a compact form factor and low-profile angling head allow for precise, unobtrusive placement in other applications. It is equally capable when deployed on guitar cabinets – either stand-mounted or hung directly over the cabinet. The larger ND46 dynamic mic is designed for drums and general instrument miking, with a unique locking pivot mechanism for simple and accurate positioning, particularly in hard-to-reach areas of drum kits. It is also suited to lower frequency applications, including floor toms and bass cabinets.

The new ND Series adds a small-diaphragm condenser model to the line-up – the ND66, with filters, pads and locking pivoting head that make it a versatile choice for drum overheads, hi-hats, close-miked drums, acoustic guitar, piano and any other typical small-diaphragm condenser applications.

Completing the ND Series is the ND68 dynamic, voiced to deliver a powerful kick drum sound with little or no additional equalisation. Offering extended low frequency response and extremely high sound pressure level handling, it is also effective when used on other bass instruments.

The ND Series will be available in Q2 2016.
