Sennheiser to Demonstrate its Unique Laser Drum Microphone Concept at 2014 NAMM ShowDaily Demonstrations Will Feature Concept Microphone Developed by Sennheiser Technology and Innovation Lab, San Francisco (January 21, 2014) Anaheim, CA, January 21, 2014: Audio specialist Sennheiser [Hall A, Booth 6577] announced that it will exhibit an advanced concept microphone at the 2014 NAMM Show, which is designed to improve drum sound pick-up. The concept, developed by Sennheiser's Technology and Innovation Lab in San Francisco, is unique and based on a recording technology supported by lasers. In the past, Sennheiser has used exhibitions such as the NAMM Show as sounding boards to gain insight and feedback on its latest developments in its Pursuit of Perfect Sound. The new laser drum concept will be demonstrated on the Sennheiser stage to visualize the idea. Typically, many microphones are used to capture the sound of a drum kit. However, each single microphone usually captures many other sounds in addition to its intended source. This is why many engineers have used gating techniques to keep the sonic image focused and avoid what is commonly referred to as comb filtering: a series of delayed signals that create sonic interference.
