In response to requests by sound contractors and sound designers, Bartlett Microphones is offering their latest model TM-125C stage-floor microphone for area pickup of actors and dancers in drama or musicals.
It includes a rugged 6-foot permanently attached cable which prevents connector damage if an actor steps on the cable.
The supercardioid polar pattern of the TM-125C helps gain-before-feedback, and provides isolation from sounds behind the mic, such as a pit orchestra. Further, it picks up sound while rejecting mechanical vibrations.
Frequency response: 80 Hz to 18 kHz, rising at high frequencies to clarify speech.
Signal-to-noise ratio: 72 dB at 94 dB SPL.
Maximum SPL: 120 dB SPL produces 3 percent THD. The mic will not audibly distort in normal use.
Finish: Black (TM-125, TM-125C) or white (TM-125W).
Bartlett Microphones was launched by the designers of the industry-standard PCC-160 stage-floor microphone.
Their first product was a next-generation model—the TM-125, which features these product upgrades:
* Smaller size
* Lower cost
* More rugged
* Smoother frequency response
* Each unit is tuned and voiced to match others within +/- 1.5 dB
* Made in U.S.A.
* 100 percent tested by the design engineers
* Tech support by the design engineers
Bartlett Microphones is based in Elkhart, Indiana. Designers Bruce Bartlett and Steve Mills have 57 years of combined engineering experience at Shure and Crown International.
