From a few hundred Hz up to 15kHz, it is nearly flat.

There is a broad peak around 120Hz IIRC.

Essentially a 270 ohm source.

The internal auto-tranny just ups the value by a factor of 20 from the 13 ohms capsule.

Reason why makers use a simple resistor for pre-amp specifications.

And the type does not matter !!
