Dynamic Instrumental Microphones

Dynamic microphones use a voice coil to convert sound into voltage. Due to their low sensitivity, dynamic microphones are often used for loud sources. Common use cases for dynamic microphones: recording high sound pressure levels, positioning the microphone at close range; due to the weaker signal-to-noise performance, it is not important here. Advantages: 1. A dynamic microphone can easily handle high sound pressure levels. 2. Dynamic microphones have low sensitivity, and even the high SPLs result in signals that can be easily processed by the next device in your recording chain without distortion. Due to their transducer principle with a voice coil, dynamic microphones are fundamentally indifferent to high sound pressure levels. Due to the low sensitivity you have no problems with the distortion of the input of the preamp (electric guitar).
