An oddity. A bidirectional dynamic (moving coil) microphone. This mic has a bass proximity boost you can curdle milk with. Frequency response in the high-end is a bit rolled off, but the low-end goes well below 20Hz, with considerable headroom. The output level at close quarters can be high enough to drive line-level devices without a preamp. Excellent on bass guitar amplifiers, string bass, also useful for taming the transient edge of metallic percussion like glockenspiel, xylophone, struck bells, other metallophones.
