Your selection of a Shure UNISPHERE Cardioid Microphone will contribute significantly to the professional quality of your performance. This ball-type microphone has a wire-mesh screen with a special filter which provides protection from wind, blast and "pop" (explosive breath sounds). This feature allows you to work as close to the microphone as you wish, either indoors or out-of-doors. Another feature of your unidirectional microphone is that it effectively controls feedback (that very annoying loudspeaker "squeal") because it picks up sound only from the front of the microphone. Unwanted audience noise or other noises occurring at the rear of the microphone are eliminated or suppressed. This allows you to work at significantly greater distances from your microphone than with non-directional (omnidirectional) microphones, without picking up objectionable background sound or feedback. (See inside for infornzation on how to use your Shure Microphone more effectively.)
