The RE320 fine-tunes the functionality of the legendary RE20 broadcast mic into an exceptionally versatile new studio and live performance mic. Engineered for stellar performance in virtually any imaginable application, the RE320 delivers excellent results when mic-ing vocals or instruments in the studio or on stage.
The RE320’s key features include Electro-Voice’s Variable-D proximity control technology for consistent tonal performance, their patented humbucking coil for noiseless operation, and a high-output neodymium magnet structure capsule that delivers fast and accurate transient response and pronounced high-frequency detail.
A new “dual personality” switch essentially creates two mics in one. One setting engages a response curve that is ideal for voice and most instrument micing, while the other switch position activates a response curve designed specifically for kick drums.
Regarding the RE320 “dual personality” switch, Electro-Voice’s Rick Belt comments, “We’ve known for many years that the RE20 is sought-after for mic-ing kick drums, despite its broadcast vocal “original purpose. Adding the kick drum curve switch position reinforces its usefulness as a specialty instrument mic, in addition to its outstanding performance on voice and low-mid-to-upper register instruments in the alternate switch position.
