Great mic for loud or complex mixes.

The ND86 microphone is a dynamic, handheld professional entertainer’s microphone that features a strong, crisp presence and a powerful and warm low end. It is an excellent microphone for any kind of vocalist from tock to jazz to blues to folk, and has found enthusiastic endorsement in each of those styles. This model is particularly effective in loud, complex mixes in which vocal intelligibility is a challenge. Heavy background vocal pastiche, but the lead vocal needs to stand out? This is the mic. Arena rock in large venues? This is the mic. It has a neodymium element, which is far lighter and far more magnetic than the traditional magnesium elements we have all been using for years. Its hot output and muscular presence in even complex mixes is appreciated by audio engineers and musical artists the world over.


Shock-mounted capsule minimizes handling noise: Low frequency bumps and thumps won’t get into the PA

Humbucking coil guards against line hum: Use with confidence near speaker cabinets and EMF-generating equipment racks

Memraflex grille resists denting: Durable tight-mesh grilles withstand extraordinarily rough treatment

Present, smooth and detailed vocal tone: Designed to conquer the acoustical challenges common in large stage productions

Optimized for use in large venues: Reduction of low-frequency room tone through high-pass filtering and boosts & cuts in key high-mid frequencies separate the voice from the stage wash

Be heard. Be understood. Be EV.

Comments about Electro-Voice ND86 Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

I have an older EV ND 767a that I have been using for quite awhile and, I'm extremely happy with it. I thouhgt I would try out the new ND 86 and, see if EV stepped it up a little. I used at a couple of rehearsals and, it seemed to perform good but, the first time I used it at a gig after the first song I went back to the 767a and, the 86 went bye bye. I so happened to find a new 767a and, I snapped it up immediately.
