Front of House Magazine's George Petersen has road-tested our new 2028 handheld mic.
Here are the key takeaways from the review:
"The 2028 does exhibit a nice, smooth — but not overblown — proximity effect when used up close, and performers that actually know how to “work” a mic may really appreciate this. Another nice factor is the effectiveness of the three-stage pop filters, and breath noise was never a problem, even up close. Combined with the (very effective) internal capsule shock mounting, LF problems from stand-borne stage thumps and handling noise were essentially non-existent.
As expected, the supercardioid polar pattern is fairly tight — so vocalists who like to move a lot around the mic while singing may need a slightly more forgiving pattern. However, if your singer understands proper mic technique, the 2028 will pay off big-time in terms of reducing stage bleed. Meanwhile, the mic’s off-axis response was spot-on — definitely attenuated, but uncolored; the 2028 scored high marks in the gain-before-feedback department, and the polar pattern remains consistent at all frequencies — all of which made monitor mixing a much easier task."
