New at Winter NAMM 2009: Electro-Voice PL Series
The new Electro-Voice PL (Professional Live) Series offers an unprecedented level of price-to-performance value in microphones for professional live sound reinforcement and installed sound applications.
Inspired by the PL legacy that began in the 1970’s, the new 2008 PL Series is a comprehensive family of vocal and instrument microphone products for the professional live sound community. Featuring seven vocal models and three instrument models, the PL Series offers exceptional durability, sonic performance, and contemporary styling.
All PL Series models feature a unique non-reflective textured satin finish, high-quality fine mesh Memraflex™ grills, shock-mounted capsules for extraordinarily-low handling noise, and polar patterns strategically chosen to deliver superb sonic performance with minimal off-axis complications.
PL Series Vocal Group
The entry-level dynamic supercardioid PL24 and PL24S (switched version) offer all around vocal clarity in any live sound application. The PL44 is a dynamic supercardioid voice-contoured for transparency and high-mid lift, delivering plug-and-play placement of vocals in any mix. The dynamic supercardioid PL80a is robust, forgiving, and EQ-friendly, delivering up-front vocal placement in professional sound applications. The PL80c maintains all of the sonic characteristics of the PL80a, with the added cosmetic detail of the “Classic“ PL finish reminiscent of the legacy PL80 from years ago. And the condenser cardioid PL84 and PL84S (switched version) are carefully voiced for intimate detail and presence, enhancing the creative expression of professional vocalists.
PL Series Instrument Group
The dynamic supercardioid PL33 kick drum and low frequency instrument microphone delivers all the tight low-end and punctuation needed for today’s demanding sound requirements. Putting a new angle on drum mic’ing, the dynamic supercardioid PL35 is designed and voiced for tom and snare mic’ing, with a unique physical design that eliminates the need for right-angle XLR connectors, minimizing cable clutter over the drum. Rounding-out the instrument line-up, the PL37 small diaphragm condenser cardioid overhead cymbal and instrument microphone crisply captures all of the performance detail of overhead drums, percussion, and acoustic instruments.
Designed for professional live sound applications, the new PL Series is poised to become the new standard in price-to-performance microphones.
PL Series: Your performance is unique. Mic it wisely.
