Thank you for purchasing the Electro-Voice® PL35. This product is a
professional-grade supercardioid dynamic microphone designed to
deliver the power, punctuation and natural tones of toms and snare
drums in any size sound reinforcement system or recording studio.
With its frequency response designed for that special tonal area
toms and snare drums occupy, the PL35 delivers all of the “dialed-in”
tone and percussive impact detail professional drummers and sound
system engineers require. The PL35’s tight supercardioid polar pat-
tern is designed to minimize off-axis information from nearby drums
and instruments entering the capsule, and allows for a very isolated
instrument sound and higher gain before feedback.
Cable clutter and positioning in tight spaces can always be an issue
when miking toms and snares, and the PL35’s clever cable exit angle
of 37.5° relative to the body reduces the vertical space above the
drum required for the XLR connector and cable. The PL35 is supplied
with the unique DRC-1 drum rim clamp which eliminates the need
for a floor stand and boom, and allows easy-on / easy-off attach-
ment of the microphone to virtually any drum brand steel rim.
Application Notes:
As with most directional microphones, the low frequency response
of the PL35 microphone varies with the distance from the sound
source. Known as “proximity effect”, the bass response of the
microphone increases as the working distance to the microphone is
reduced. This “bass boost” is only audible when working at distances
closer than 6 inches. Therefore, working close to the microphone will
produce a more robust sound. Using this microphone at distances
greater than 6 inches provides minimal coloration from proximity
Close-up positioning of the microphone will also reduce the poten-
tial for feedback from the sound reinforcement system. Then, the
bass boost provides an increase in overall microphone output level.
The mixer gain may be proportionately reduced, resulting in a reduc-
tion of the system’s sensitivity to feedback caused by sound entering
the microphone from the loudspeakers.
This Electro-Voice® PL35 product is guaranteed against malfunction
due to defects in materials or workmanship for a period of three (3)
years from the date of original purchase. Please refer to the Limited
