Join Bill Gibson for an in-depth discussion in this video Dynamic moving-coil capsule, part of Microphone Techniques: Essentials.
- [Instructor] The dynamic moving coil microphone capsule … is the most rugged and solid. … When compared to condenser and ribbon microphones … it's easy to understand why they hold up so well … and why they're a great choice in many applications. … In fact the Shure SM57 and and SM58, … likely the most popular microphones ever … are dynamic microphones. … A dynamic mic capsule operates on a magnetic principle … using a magnet at it's core surrounded … by a cylindrical coil made from copper wire. … On top of the copper coil is a diaphragm made … of thin plastic that resonates, … sympathetically vibrates, to the audio sound waves. … This copper cylinder is suspended over the magnet so … that the entire coil moves up and down … around the magnet in direct correlation … to the influence of the audio waves on the diaphragm. … The movement of the copper coil … around the magnet causes a constant variation … of the north south magnetism in the magnet. … That also directly correlates to the audio waveform …
