The GAUGE ECM-47 microphone is a high quality, variable pattern, studio microphone utilizing vacuum tube electronics and a gold sputtered, ultra-light diaphragm in an advanced capsule design. Each GAUGE ECM-47 comes complete with a high quality pop-screen and a precision-made, flexible shock mount to minimize the effect of floor vibrations reaching the microphone through the microphone stand. The GAUGE ECM-47 also comes with its own proprietary power supply and cable.

Pickup Patterns
The GAUGE ECM-47 pickup pattern control switch is located on the front of the power supply. The directional pattern of the ECM-47 is fully adjustable through 9 pickup patterns; from Omni-directional to Cardioid to Figure-of -Eight.

Cardioid Pickup Pattern
The Cardioid (or Directional pattern) is ideal for recording musical instruments, vocals and speech. It is the most common pattern as it is best suited for capturing sounds located directly in from of the microphone. The Cardioid pattern allows the microphone to be directed at the desired sound source while offering a measure of rejection to sounds approaching the microphone from the rear and to the sides.

Hyper-Cardioid Pickup Pattern
The Hyper-Cardioid pattern is an exaggerated version of the Cardioid pattern. It isa narrower pickup pattern than the normal Cardioid response and it is very directional, greatly reducing sound from the sides and rear.

Omni-Directional Pickup Pattern
The Omni-directional pattern means the microphone will capture sound equally from all directions. The Omni-directional pattern will not exhibit the proximity bass boost effect inherent in Cardioid or Hyper-Cardioid patterns.

Omni-directional microphones have a very natural sound. This pattern is often used where there is a need to capture the sound of the room acoustics or where there are several musicians or singers performing together. Omni-directional microphones are often used for stereo recording of ensembles or when the sound is coming from many directions or if the sound source is moving.

(Bi-Directional) Pickup Pattern
The Figure-of-Eight pattern means the microphone will capture sound equally from both the front and rear of the microphone, but not from the sides. Sound arriving from the sides will result in equal air pressure on both sides of the diaphragm & consequently there will be no electrical output. Conversely, on-axis sounds produce the maximum pressure differential & hence the maximum output. Figure-of-eight microphones are often used in stereo recording applications and where a high degree of rejection of off-axis sounds would be useful.
