Full Compass Broadcast (Neu) Product Details
The large-diaphragm condenser capsule used in the BCM 104 has a cardioid directional pattern with internally switchable proximity effect compensation. A second switch allows the sensitivity to be reduced by 14 dB. The microphone head-grille twists off easily for quick cleaning. Neumann offers optional, color-coded head-grilles so that, for reasons of hygiene, each announcer working at an announcing desk can use his or her individual head-grille. Directly in front of the capsule, mounted on a frame holder, is a piece of fine gauze that serves as a built-in pop-screen. The BCM 104 has an elastic mount against structure-borne noise, that is compatible with standard broadcast microphone arms. Phantom power is required.
