Violet Design the Black Finger Microphone “The Finger” in Black or Gold is a microphone uses medium size, single diaphragm, cardioid pattern capsule and is designed for close to neutral, very detailed sound – with smooth, transparent highs, optimal presence and natural low end response.

“The Finger” uses a single medium diaphragm transducer to provide detailed sound with smooth transparent highs, optimal presence and natural low-end response with a unidirectional polar pattern. “The Finger” has a unique body design with an integrated tapered reflector which reduces resonances, removes reflections and optimizes the microphone’s cardioid polar pattern. Integrated damping of the transducer reduces stand rumble, outside infrasonic interference and mechanical shocks.

The optional and unique FRR Reflection Ring (shown here) is a reflector disc which can be positioned at the head or anywhere along the body of the microphone to alter the polar pattern, frequency response and sensitivity. Positioning the FRR at the end point of “The Finger’s” reflector alters low-frequency response and adds proximity effect. The FRR can also be used to separate the front and rear sides of the capsule and to reduce reflections and reverberation from reaching the capsule. Positioning the FRR on the capsule head’s top produces a polar pattern closer to a half-sphere pattern with less coloration at different angles, less proximity effect and adds sensitivity to all except high frequencies. It is even possible to use 2 FRRs, positioning one on the top of the head and one elsewhere on the body for effect. “The Finger” is available in 2 styles. “The Black Finger” has polished nickel-plated hardware and a matte black body. “The Gold Finger” has polished gold-plated hardware and a matte black body. Matched stereo pairs can be special ordered. FRR is an optional unique reflection ring accessory which is used as a tool to slightly alter directional characteristics and frequency response by positioning at different points along the microphone body.

FRR Reflection Ring is a reflector disc which can be positioned at the head or anywhere along the body of the microphone to alter the polar pattern, frequency response and sensitivity. Positioning the FRR on the top produces a polar pattern closer to a half-sphere pattern with less coloration at different angles, less proximity effect and adds sensitivity to all except high frequencies. Positioning the FRR lower of “The Finger” reflector alters low-frequency response and adds proximity effect. The FRR can also be used to separate the front and rear sides of the capsule and to reduce reflections and reverberation from reaching the capsule. FRR adds warmth, reduces acoustic feedback and protects against wrong handling of microphone. You can manipulate with sound using FRR.

Description

Violet Design Global Pre Microphone

Violet Design Global Pre Microphone is compact hi-end quality electrostatic microphone preamplifier body. Fully covering today’s high resolution audio recording demands it was designed as an alternative to expensive historical vacuum tube microphone preamplifiers.

The Global Pre body is fully compatible with Germany made vintage M-series interchangeable capsule heads, and B-series & VIN-series interchangeable capsule heads made by JZ in Latvia.

Phantom powered, linear, class-A discrete solid state transformerless preamplifier electronics provides extremely low self noise and hard to measure all kind of distortion. Symmetric output with XLR-3 type gold plated contact output connector provides balanced low impedance output and stable connection.

The Global Pre body comes in a wooden box with included GSM adjustable angle compact studio shock mount.

Polar patterns and applications fully depend from interchangeable head different specifications.
