The RingThe perforated aluminum ring with its 120-millimeter (ca. 5‘’) diameter is warp resistant and covered with sturdy two-component-paint with a structured surface, which has acoustic benefits.
The ring holes are finished with a smooth edge and a countersink, which is extra deep on the inside, so any undesired disturbing air stream can silently and quickly escape from between the two fabric linings of the P 120. This is a big advantage because a closed-in air cushion would influence the following voice impulses.
NEW in 2016: The Pauly-Gloss-FeatureAs of January 2016, the holes of the SuperScreen are being finished with a smooth edge and a 90°countersink on the inside after painting, showing the glossy aluminum. This makes the above mentioned effect of fast reduction of air cushions between both cloth layers even more efficient. The air can now escape through the holes faster and more quietly. Improved filter performance with disturbing sounds of the human voice during microphone recording is the consequence – and the ring looks even better now!
The FabricThe two layers of super thin fabric on the Pauly P 120 are positioned at an acoustically suitable distance and applied under two different optimum tensions. In addition, the fabric on each side of the ring is aligned in a different direction. Its structure is soft and diffuse.
That is why the Pauly-SuperScreen became a standard, especially in high-class recording studios, is being used by numerous radio stations, is being distributed by renowned microphone makers and went on a successful journey all the way to America. However, its qualities have also become indispensable in smaller specialized studios or with the production of radio commercials, audio books, newscasts, and radio interviews. It is understood that you should not save on one of the most important elements of the recording process.
The MountsThe mounts need to serve multiple mechanical purposes as well as absorb structure-borne noise.
The Pauly mounts meet both demands excellently.
The GooseneckThe “T-30” in the name stands for the 30-centimeter (ca. 12’’) Pauly-gooseneck, which enables ideal filter positioning by being both flexible and solid. Plus, it can be easily used with almost any type of microphone. In order to fit microphone stands in the U. S., the lower mounting eye is larger so that the gooseneck can be fastened to the standard 5/8’’ thread. The gooseneck was also designed by PaulyTon, which means years of use.
The Adapter-ConeAn Adapter-Cone developed by PaulyTon is available to mount the filter ring on a separate mic stand. Mounting on the standard 5/8’’ thread is possible after removing the metric reduction thread.
The Pauly Adapter-Cone is extremely versatile and, in addition to that, completely isolates the microphone in use from any structure-borne noise.
Due to its construction, the Adapter-Cone absorbs vibrations. This further reduces any wobble of the filter ring, which has a positive effect on filtering disturbing noise and gaining a lively signal.
