Live & Recording Applications: Samson's R21S is a hand held
dynamic microphone that excels in both live performance and recording
applications. Equipped with a linear frequency response for superior
reproduction, it is also designed to withstand high sound pressure levels.
Cardioid Pattern + Ultra-Sensitive Element: Extremely
sensitive, it employs a tight cardioid pattern to reduce feedback. Its tight
cardioid polar pattern minimizes feedback problems and effectively rejects
signals not originating directly in front of the mic capsule. Its ultra
sensitive element picks up all of the nuances of any performance.
Extended Frequency Range & High SPL: The mic's extended
range frequency response delivers optimum reproduction and exceptionally clear,
crisp sound. The mic can also withstands high SPLs lending itself to a wide
range of "miking" situations.
Rugged Construction w/ Shock-Mounted Element: A special
shock-mounted element minimizes handling noise and provides additional
protection. The special shock-mounting allows movement of the mic element to
greatly reduce handling noise. The rugged zinc alloy die-casting case ensures
reliable performance in even the
most demanding environments.
Built-In Windscreen: The R21S has a built-in wind screen
which protects against most wind and breathing noise. Under adverse conditions,
such as high winds, an optional foam windscreen (sold separately) can be used.
XLR Connector & Mic Cable: The R21S microphone is fitted
with a gold-plated XLR connector and can be connected to most mixers,
mixer/amplifiers, or mic preamps using the included 18' XLR-to-1/4" microphone
cable (also includes a 1/4"-to-1/8" adapter). For maximum signal handling
capability and minimal distortion, a minimum load impedance of 800 ohms should
be used. A reduction in output signal strength and output clipping level will
result with the load at 150 ohms.
Mounting Options: Lightweight and compact, the R21S can be
mounted on any standard microphone stand or can be easily handheld for long
periods without inducing fatigue. The R21S can be mounted to any standard
microphone stand (using the included mic clip) or can be handheld; due to its
unique mic element shock mounting, it generates significantly less handling
noise than most other microphones. If handheld, take care not to cover the any
part of the head grille with your hand.
Placement: Aim the microphone at the desired source. Keep
unwanted sound sources at a 135° angle from the front of the microphone. Place
the microphone as close to the sound source as possible. The closer the mic is
to the sound source, the more emphasized the bass response will be. The R21S
will boost bass frequencies when the microphone is between 0 to 6" from the
sound source. As you move the sound source further away from the microphone, the
bass response will gradually roll off.
