The predecessor to the SM58®, The 565SD Classic Unisphere® Vocal Microphone is a dual-impedance, unidirectional dynamic microphone famous for its spot on the Woodstock stage.
It features highly effective wind and "pop" filter for vocals and a durable, wire-mesh front grille. Shipped connected for low-impedance operation, the 565SD provides excellent vocal or speech reproduction onstage, and can also be used with public address systems.
Versatile, high-quality microphone with sound characteristics similar to the SM58®
Selectable dual-impedance operation
Silent magnetic reed on/off switch with lock-on option
Frequency response: 50 to 15,000 Hz
50 to 15,000 Hz
Cardioid (unidirectional)--uniform with frequency, symmetrical about axis
Dual. Microphone rating impedance is 150 ohms (250 ohms actual) for connection to microphone inputs rated at 19 to 300 ohms and "High" for connection to high-impedance microphone inputs. Wired for low impedance as supplied.
Output Level (at 1,000 Hz)
Low: Open Circuit Voltage* -56.0 dB (1.6 mV)
High Open Circuit Voltage* -34.0 dB (20 mV)
*0 dB = 1 volt per Pascal (1 Pa = 94 dB SPL)
Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 (with respect to pin 3).
Built-in magnetic reed on/off switch with lockplate.
Cartridge Shock Mount
Internal rubber vibration-isolator
565SD-CN: 6.1 m (20 ft) two-conductor shielded, rubber-jacketed, detachable, with XLR connectors.
Positive action, adjustable through 90 degrees from vertical to horizontal, permits easy removal for handheld use, suitable for mounting on stand with 5/8"-27 thread
