The new Electro-Voice N/D868 was designed for one purpose: to be the very best bass drum microphone. It provides a unique, high-performance solution to difficult bass-drum-miking problems.
The ND868 is a true large-diaphragm microphone for extended
low-frequency response. Its superb pattern control minimizes off-axis
coloration and feedback from large, loud floor monitors. Its wide-range
N /DYM@ transducer can handle outrageous SPLs without difficulty and has been sensitivity-adjusted to prevent high-level signals from overloading your mic preamp. The optimal placement for theND868 is on a pillow inside the drum about 3-inches from the head. This placement accentuates the "pillow effect"-a 3 to 4-dB drop in the upper
bass range-and lets the N /D868's specially tailored response work its
magic. The ND868 has a peak in the upper midrange to capture the attack of the beater on the head and a bump Like all Electro-Voice microphones, the ND868 approaches indestructibility. Its special Memraflex™ grille screen resists bumps, dents and bends.Its heavy-duty steel case will survive the most grueling tours with ease. The
ND868's robust stand clamp will hold it securely in place to make it easy to get the sound you desire. Each ND868 is carefully built to
exacting standards in our ISO-certified Sevierville, Tennessee factory. Every microphone is tested and a response graph included with each unit to show it meets all of its engineering criteria.
