Can Anyone Explain what's inside an E-V 666?

...EV data on these, of which I have and use two. I wonder offhand if it relates to the 666R version which rolls off the lows more. 150 versus 250 can indeed be a meaningful difference in circuits of the era. For example, lots of remote mixers used to have unbalanced...

Name that mic!

EV-666, AKA the devils mic. Also could be the 667, that's a 666 with a dedicated preamp. was also a 666R version with the same shape. predecessor to the RE-20 that's more forgiving in an imperfect room. You also need to take into consideration back then it was all high end tube preamps used for stuff...

Product Description

The Model 666 is a cardioid microphone of the dynamic type. The cardioid pattern is obtained through use of three sound entrances located in the microphone case at different distances in back of the diaphragm. The three sound entrances, each utilizing the proper acoustical impedance, combine to form one effective back entrance, which varies in distance from the diaphragm inversely with frequency. The resulting phase and amplitude conditions produce a uniform range at the flat position on the preamplifier. This variable front-to-back distance along with dynamic con*struction affords high resistance to mechanical shock and produces virtually no proximity effect. The front-to-back ratio is double to triple that of the average cardioid microphone.
