VLM type-B, high gain capsule, excellent for toms, floor toms, and congas.Compact and lightweight, yet featuring full-size diaphragms, the D Series microphones employ exclusive Sub-Impulse Technology designed specifically to achieve the true 3-dimensional sound of instruments.Sub- Impulse Technology builds on the principles of the VLM diaphragm design to accurately pick up the subtle nuances of sub-impulse harmonics. These harmonics contribute substantially to the richness of the sound.Basically, the lower mass of the diaphragm coupled with an extra-sensitive internal air suspension allows the outer wall of the diaphragm to react to sound waves, harmonics and sub-harmonics quicker than other mics. The result is a faster, more precise sampling of the original sound.Housed in precision tooled blocks of pure aluminum, these mics offer the size, weight and ruggedness required for instrument mics.A tight hypercardioid pickup pattern allows clear definition of sound without the feedback problems commonly associated with placing multiple mics in close proximity.

...a while the HW just does something special...even the low end units. I'd actually like to add TC M-One and D-2. Fantastic units! Loved those back in the 90's.
