The BM 190 stage microphone is a compact member of the micon series of studio condenser microphones. A classic 48V phantom powered condenser microphone design, the BM 190 ensures a high degree of intelligibility and clarity for speech, vocals and music, also when used in less favourable acoustic conditions. The design makes it particularly suited to suspension above stages. Sound engineers in Theatre, Opera and Television will be particularly impressed by the visually unobtrusive appearance of the microphone. The BM 190 comprises a BMK 190 microphone capsule and the BMV 190 stage microphone preamplifier. Use of a special capsule with a cardioid characteristic achieves excellent attenuation of undesired acoustic interference in the vicinity. The suspension coupling provides a secure positioning and precise orientation of the microphone. The stage microphone has a balanced frequency response and ensures a neutral capture of sound. The electronic circuitry employed generates a negligible noise level. The low output impedance means that XLR cable extensions can be used where required. The microphone is supplied in a dark bronze finish. A LEMO® mini-connector system provides an easy way to exchange the BMK 190 cardioid capsule with a BMK 180 omnidirectional capsule.
The stage microphone capsule is attached to the suspension coupling with a swivel clip. After connecting to the microphone capsule, the connecting cable is plugged into the BMV 190 preamplifier and the Stage microphone is powered from the 48V phantom power supply via a 3 pin XLR. If required, the use of a W 19 Windshield is recommended.
