Microtech Gefell UM 930 Switchable Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone
The Microtech Gefell UM 930 microphone combines large diaphragm dual-capsules with the latest in semiconductor circuit design, creating a switchable pattern mic of the highest quality.
The Microtech Gefell UM 930 is a switchable pattern FET condenser microphone with a dual-membrane large-diaphragm capsule. The mic is known for its low self-noise (7dBA) and high dynamic range (135dB).
Pattern selection is effected via a magnetic reed switch on the mic body. Five discrete patterns are provided: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, and figure 8. The mic’s circuitry mutes the output when the pattern switch is engaged; this prevents audible clicks through the signal chain when changing patterns on a hot mic.
The UM 930 uses the same diaphragm/capsule as the M 930 microphone, although in the UM 930 there are two of them, positioned back-to-back.
The mic employs a unique phantom power circuit, in which the incoming power is fed through an optical converter, eliminating the phantom circuit as a source of potential noise.
Optional accessories include: foam windscreen, popscreen, elastic suspension mounts, solid mic holders, and cables.
