This is my first post here !
I recently bought a XD-V35. I knew it would be a great product, since I'm very happy with my G50 (line6 wireless guitar system)
Anyway, it works very well, and I like the sound a lot.... but.... when the vocalist of my band sings powerful notes, there's a slight noticeable distortion in the high medium range. I'm wondering where the problem is located... maybe there is too much being asked of the capsule itself - though I doubt it. Maybe there's a small preamp in the transmitter just behind the transducer itself, that can not bear so much pressure without distorting. In this case, I would search for a 10 dB pad, but there's no such thing on the mic.
To solve that problem, I've been thinking of 2 ideas :
- Buying another capsule. Do you know other capsules more "accepting" in regard of high volume ? Are there capsules with/without preamp, with/without 10 dB /20 dB pad ? I must say that I tried a Beta58 capsule, but I was surprised by the fact that the output volume is *wayyyyy* quieter that the line 6 capsule - and then the S/R ratio is quite bad. Is this normal ? What about Heil capsules ?
- Buying a XD-V55 or 75 to replace my v35 (I will use the 35 for another application). Questions : is the Line6 capsule the same for the 3 models (I know the V55 and V75 add more mic emulations, but what about the physical capsule itself?) - (I need a cardioid - not super-cardioid). Is there a 10dB pad in the transmitter itself (I'm not talking about the volume adjustment on the receiver) ?
Any hint/ideas would be greatly appreciated !
Thanks a lot !
