The D2 MKII is a high quality dynamic microphone with a full bodied sound and an excellent transient response. It has a consistent cardioid polar pattern for a low off -axis coloration and a good rejection of unwanted sounds.
A clear, distinct and full bodied sound with a mild lift in the upper midrange and an increasing bass boost at closer distances.
Cardioid polar pattern that reduces feedback in live use.
The D2 MK II is a high quality dynamic microphone with a fullbodied sound and an excellent transient response. It has a consistent cardioid polar pattern for a low off-axis coloration and a good rejection of unwanted sounds.
The D2 MKII has a flat response with a mild lift in the upper midrange. It will exhibit a bass boost in the 75-300 Hz area at short distances due to the proximity effect which can help make voices and instruments sound fuller.
The three switches allows the user to adjust the frequency response. There are two switches for selecting two different bass rolloff filters and one switch for lowering the response in a broad range centered around 5 kHz.
Equipped with an internal windscreen, an external pop filter will usually not be needed. The 5/8’ thread adator in the stand adaptor matches different stand gauges.
The D2 MK II is a versatile microphone that will perform very well in many applications, in the studio, on stage and in broadcast applications, for speech/vocals and instruments like kick-drum and electric bass.
The D2 can be used with any standard mixer or preamp. Use either a XLR to XLR or XLR to 1/4” plug low impedance cable. Do not use the D2 with 48V phantom power engaged.
When mounting the D2 MKII to the stand you may need to remove the threaded adapter from the mic holder, depending on the threading of the mic stand.
The D2 MKII should point towards the sound source.
