Whether you need to pick up the low frequencies of sound or negate them to focus on the voice or main audio, good quality microphones are the primary interfaces for your audio source. Vocal, Instruments, karaoke or concert, different types of microphones are required to suit various needs. Stage performances and Stereo recordings need highest quality of audio products, best in material and construction.
The new PG Alta series launched by Shure captures sound for versatile applications using Cardiod Condenser & Dynamic microphones. Polar pattern of a microphone is the sensitivity to sound relative to the direction or angle from which it arrives. The most common patterns are Omnidirectional, Cardioid & Supercardioid. A cardioid microphone has the most sensitivity at the front and is least at the back, suitable for stage performances. It cuts out ambient noise and reduces feedback more than the omnidirectional.
The microphones are sleek black metallic that reduce feedback and background noise with the assurance of high fidelity sound.
