The ND86 microphone is a dynamic, handheld professional entertainer’s microphone that features a strong, crisp presence and a powerful and warm low end. It is an excellent microphone for any kind of vocalist from tock to jazz to blues to folk, and has found enthusiastic endorsement in each of those styles. This model is particularly effective in loud, complex mixes in which vocal intelligibility is a challenge. Heavy background vocal pastiche, but the lead vocal needs to stand out? This is the mic. Arena rock in large venues? This is the mic. It has a neodymium element, which is far lighter and far more magnetic than the traditional magnesium elements we have all been using for years. Its hot output and muscular presence in even complex mixes is appreciated by audio engineers and musical artists the world over.
