Telex Communications announced the release of the newest addition, the RE510, to the enduring Electro-Voice RE microphone family.
The RE510 is a super-cardioid hand-held condenser microphone with the flexibility to adapt to different applications. The RE510 features a broad smooth bandwidth, low distortion, and a wide dynamic range. The flexibility to adapt to different applications comes thanks to a low-frequency boost switch, which makes it possible to configure the mic as either a classic sounding live vocal microphone or as a high performance studio microphone. In the roll-off configuration, the low end of the RE510 is tailored to compensate for proximity effect while the upper-mid frequencies offer a clear and natural response. When the RE510 is configured for studio mode, the low-end response is lifted so that the RE510 becomes a versatile instrument microphone, or it can be used when a performer needs to add warmth to their voice.
The wide bandwidth and high SPL handling capability of the RE510 makes it equally at home micing an acoustic guitar, electric guitar amplifier, cymbals, or even a kick drum. The configuration switch for changing the RE510 from vocal to instrument mode is securely located beneath the ball screen and can't be changed inadvertently. Its solid EV design features include a Warm Grip handle for reduced handling noise and a comfortable feel, a multistage pop-filter to virtually eliminate breath noise, and a Memraflex grille for rugged durability.
The RE510 is also available in a wireless head version for use with the RE-1 wireless system.
