The 1700VP is a continuously-variable pattern condenser overheadmicrophone system with remote polar control and carbon fiber miniatureboom. The variable polar pattern with remote control allows the user toprecisely adjust the shape of the pick-up pattern for best performancefrom a remote location. Utilizing a two-conductor shielded cable (maxlength 2,000 feet) between the microphone head and the pattern-controlbox, the user can adjust the polar pattern in real time withoutchanging capsules, microphone positions, or inducing noise in the audiochain.
Special attention has been given to thefrequency response and sensitivity of the microphone while utilizing the variable-pattern control to precisely alter the shape of thepick-up pattern. The large-diameter, low-noise elements produce afrequency response of 40Hz to 20KHz with a selectable, recessed 80Hz,12dB/octave high-pass filter that removes unwanted low-frequency energywhen engaged. The filter control is conveniently located on the controlbox. The microphone head is made of commercial grade aluminum, thecontrol box is made of hardened steel, both are powder coated and madein the USA. The microphone head is painted matte black for anunobtrusive yet stylish appearance. The remote polar-pattern controlbox can be mounted in a single rack unit shelf with optionalaccessories.
