WES 2000

New Product!


WES 2000 is a diaphragm condenser microphone that has been acoustically designed with cardioid, figure-8 and omni polar patterns to make the microphone suitable for use both in the recording studio and on stage. The diaphragm is made of a plastic foil that is gold-sputtered on one side to prevent short-circuits to the back electrode even at the extremely high sound pressure levels.

A switchable pre-attenuation pad allows you to increase the maximum SPL capability to your microphone by 10 dB or distortion-free close-in recordings. 

A high-pass filter that is switchable reduces low-end distortion due to uncontrolled rumble or wind noise even further. The built-in grille is ideal for vocal use. A safety flange on the connector shaft prevents the microphone from falling out of the grille suspension or stand adapter even when mounted microphone.

  • Electret microphone.
  • 3 selectable polar patterns: Cardioid, Omni-directional, Figure-8.
  • Balanced output of low impedance.
  • 10 dB pre-attenuation pad (switchable).
  • High pass filter.
  • Condenser cartridge with low mass diaphragm for superior response without distortion.
  • 48V DC phantom power.
