Shure has launched the new Centraverse line of installed sound microphones, available in gooseneck, boundary and overhead models, as an economical complement to its existing Microflex series for the sound contracting market.

The Centraverse CVG12 and CVG18 are professional gooseneck electret condenser microphones that are suited for use in a variety of locations, including podiums and desktops. Additional features include:

—Cardioid polar pattern with tailored response for speech

—Available in 12-inch (30.4 cm) and 18-inch (45.7 cm) gooseneck lengths

—Black color

—Included flange mount and available snap-fit windscreens

—Available in three configurations, including inline preamp (CVG12/CVG18), mute switch/LED, inline preamp (CVG12S/CVG18S), and light-ring, mute switch, inline preamp (CVG12RS/CVG18RS)

Also available is the sleek Centraverse CVD desktop base, compatible with all Centraverse 12-inch and 18- inch gooseneck microphones. 

The Centraverse CVB are professional boundary electret condenser microphones designed for use in desktop-installed sound reinforcement applications. Additional features:

—Available in cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns

The Centraverse CVO hanging condenser microphones offer an integrated wire aiming hanger that enables optimal placement above choirs and other ensembles. Additional features:

All of the microphones in the line are outfitted with proprietary Commshield interference immunity, which guards against unwanted RF interference from portable wireless devices, offering high resistance to intense nearby radio signals.

All models carry a two-year limited warranty, and will be available for purchase from select retailers in early November.

“Budget-conscious customers requiring installed and portable applications for basic sound reinforcement, such as vocal amplification, will immediately benefit from our Centraverse line, as the product line combines best-in-class performance with simplicity and affordability,” says Chad Wiggins, category director for wired microphones at Shure. “To ensure the mics are well-suited for their intended environments, we also focused on the aesthetics, designing the products with a modern and industrial style that still offers Shure’s sound quality, reliability, and functionality.”
