EV microphone with dual purpose usefulness - plus no proximity effect!

UK Beachboys, 04.04.2015
I was recommended this microphone because I needed a radio style mic, and noticed it also was useful on kick drum.

I did a bit of research and discovered the EV Variable-D system - where the usual cardioid bass tip-up when you get close to the mic doesn't happen. The usual base proximity effect is hardly there at all, and it sounds like an omni, but with a useful cardioid response. At about 150mm you can go off to each side of the mic without the sound changing in tone - the thin sound you usually get as you move off is nowhere near so obvious. It's a BIG microphone - the Variable-D system means the capsule itself is quite big so the housing is bigger still. So for the job I had in mind, I'm very happy. Then I tried it on the kick drum. My band is a tribute band - the Beach Boys, and we try to sound as authentic as we can, so a kick drum that goes BOOOOOM is not on the list. I quite like the AKG112 which we use, but that is maybe a little too light. Selecting the kick position on the EV 320 works really well, and the shape allows it to sit closer to the head than the 112. Using a stand is a bit tricky because the hole in the front head is quite low, so the longer reach of the 320 helps. If you use it without the kick position being selected, you DO get the bigger boomy sound, which I guess some people might like.

The mic clamp supplied fits over the XLR socket tube, and is pretty sturdy and well made, and there is a small grub screw that prevents the thing sliding off. For radio station use there is a suspension mount to stick it on an anglepoise type arm, but for me, I don't need that.

There are lots of comments on the net about the dire effects of covering up the side vents, which some people feel the need to do, but I tried it with hardly any impact at all. It certainly didn't make the mic more prone to feedback, which is what I expected.

It's not a bad price and does two jobs - a shame I didn't discover it earlier!

Great mic from E.V.

27.05.2015
I bought this mic mainly for live kick drum reinforcement, budget not quite stretching to an RE20! The 'kick' frequency switch is a very handy little addition, making a really noticeable instant difference in tone- more punchy and aggressive than the flat setting. Each time i've used this mic so far i've needed to do very little in the way of E.Q- I like my kick tuned for a nice round "thump", something the RE320 is right at home handling. If you're looking for a more clicky, modern sound then i'd recommend checking out the Audix D6 instead.

When put in front of the Bari sax in my Ska band, I got a lovely full, bassy tone, without losing any of the aggressiveness that the music requires. It also sounded great for mic'ing up Bass cabs and studio vocal work.

The metal chassis feels really solid and will be able to take plenty of abuse (if you're clumsy like me), the mic also comes with a handy padded carry case. Be warned that this mic is heavy- you'll need to really tighten up those mic stands to avoid sagging, and you may need a screwdriver handy to tighten up the supplied clip.
