Common name: Turner 500
Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage
The 500 is a dynamic cardioid microphone providing smooth and wide frequency response. Each microphone is extensively tested and adjusted for consistency during production. The cardioid polar pattern response is very selective with excellent front-to-back discrimination making it ideal for critical applications where feedback is a problem. An internal windscreen reduces wind, breath and pop noise when used close to the source. Mechanically transmitted noise is attenuated by the internal rubber shock-mount. 500 series microphones are finished in satin chrome except for the 510 finished in non-reflective broadcast grey. The 500G and S-500G models are also available in gold finish for house of worship use. All models except the FM500 are switchable between high and low impedance and supplied with a Cycolac swivel stand adapter and detachable 20-foot, three conductor, shielded black PVC jacket.
