  • The Shure Model 596LB is a compact, hand-held dynamic, low-impedance communications microphone with a 200 to 5,000 Hz frequency response. Designed especially for voice communications use, it is an economical unit for applications in budget-restricted paging and other installations. The 596LB microphone is compatible with many popular paging amplifier inputs. Its tailored frequency response provides clear, intelligible operation. The ARMO-DURcase is small, light and sturdy, and fits comfortably in the palm of the hand. It has a long-life push-to-talk switch, and a durable coiled cable for years of reliable performance. The 596LB has a low-impedance output.

    • Omnidirectional pickup pattern for optimum off-axis operation
    • Frequency response from 200 to 5,000 Hz, tailored for voice communications
    • Economical-the perfect choice for modest paging installations
    • Rugged and dependable under most operating conditions
    • Silver-plated switch contacts for long-term low contact resistance and reliable performance
    • Long-life vinyl-jacketed coil-cord for years of trouble-free operation
    • Output impedance matches most paging amplifier inputs
    • Virtually indestructible ARMO-DUR case
    • Sturdy, convenient mounting button for attaching to equipment or nearby surface using supplied mounting bracket

    The 596LB can be wired for balanced-line operation and is recommended for use where long cable lengths are required, or conditions where severe hum pickup may exist.The 596LB can be fed directly into a standard low-impedance amplifier input, or a Shure A95 Series Line Matching Transformer (at the equipment end of the cable) can be used for coupling the 596LB to the input of a high-impedance amplifier. A two-conductor shielded cable can be used for extending only the microphone circuit. If both the microphone and the remote circuit are to be extended, a four-conductor with two shielded conductors should be used.The microphone circuit of the 596LB is normally open when the microphone switch button is not depressed.

    MOUNTING:The 596LB is provided with a rear-case hang-up button for use with a mounting bracket on or near associated equipment.The bracket has mounting holes with clearance for No. 6 or No. 8 screws (not supplied).
