Neumann released the BCM 104 with broadcast professionals in mind. What they didn’t necessarily expect was the number of home, project, and professional studio owners who have fallen in love with what the BCM 104 does to studio vocals! Designed to capture the emotion of a voice performance, the BCM 104 has quickly become the essential kit not only for broadcasters and podcasters, but for music recording engineers who want to capture vocals and instruments with stunning clarity, presence, and authority.
Neumann is famous for their large-diaphragm condenser capsules, and the one used in the BCM 104 is specifically designed to capture the human voice without coloration or undesirable artifacts. The mic has a fixed cardioid polar pattern with outstanding off-axis rejection. Its linear frequency response features a gentle presence boost around 4kHz, and a subtle shelf boost above 10kHz to enhance intelligibility. The microphone’s outstanding transient response is optimized to capture every nuance of the human voice in brilliant detail. The BCM 104’s wide frequency response makes it perfect for much more than speech applications — it’s also stunning on sung vocals and acoustic instruments.
The BCM 104 is equipped with an integrated pop screen that prevents take-ruining plosives in vocal recordings and also effectively protects the diaphragm from moisture and particulate contamination — a common issue with vocal mics. The pop screen can be easily removed for cleaning without the use of tools.
The BCM 104’s electronic circuit features extremely low self-noise of just 7dBA and can handle high sound pressure levels up to 138dB without distorting. Its balanced output operates transformer less to ensure minimal hum interference and excellent common-mode rejection of extraneous signals. A subsonic filter suppresses frequencies below 20Hz. A switchable 100Hz highpass filter compensates for proximity effect, and a 14dB pre-attenuation pad is also provided to reduce the mic’s output level, allowing you to use it with a wide range of preamps. The filter and pad switches are accessible inside the microphone body, as these options are usually selected only once, during setup. The BCM 104’s impressive sensitivity and robust 152dB SPL rating (with the pad engaged) enhance the versatility of this amazing mic, making it ideal for capturing everything from the quietest whisper to electric guitars and drums!
Neumann BCM 104 Broadcast Microphone functionally optimized design features an integrated pop screen and a shock protected large diaphragm condenser capsule, specially developed for speech. Feel fabulous to shop with Sound Town Electronics.
