Supercardioid Condenser Gooseneck Microphone with Rugged Ball-and-Socket Swivel Mount - Bronze

The Crown LM-201 is a professional quality, supercardioid electret condenser microphone designed for use on lecterns, pulpits, or similar applications.

The microphone is easily installed with the included mounting screws. As it is swiveled to the desired position, adjustment is far quieter than conventional gooseneck microphones. Swivel motion is limited to prevent cable damage. The LM-201 is rugged and is built to withstand daily use.

Because of its supercardioid pickup pattern, the LM-201 rejects background noise and room reverberation, improving gain-before-feedback more than a microphone with a cardioid pattern.

The LM-201 has a smooth, wide-range frequency response for natural reproduction of the voice. Low frequencies are filtered out to reduce pickup of lectern thumps, room rumble, etc.

The included wire-screen grille has a two-stage pop filter to reduce pickup of explosive breath sounds. An external foam windscreen is supplied for extra pop rejection or for outdoor use. The base and mic capsule are shock-mounted to attenuate handling noise and lectern thumps.

The microphone output is balanced, low impedance, which allows long cable runs without hum pickup or high-frequency loss.

Two finishes are available: black (model LM-201P) or brown (model LM-201B).
