Omni-directional RF condenser microphone. Ideal as a main microphone for orchestras and solo instruments. Picks up the natural acoustics of the room.
The MKH 20 is usually used as a main microphone for orchestras and solo instruments, and picks up the natural acoustics of the room, though it does have a much wider range of applications as omni-directional microphones do not suffer from 'proximity effect'.
Microphone with omni-directional pick-up pattern
Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
Exceptionally flat frequency response, switchable for near and diffuse field applications
High frequency response can be accentuated by means of a special pressure build-up ring
Slightly increasing directivity at high frequencies to adjust tonal balance
