Dynamic Cardioid Microphone Specifically Tuned and Designed for the Harmonica
A professional high-performance & Ultra-small mic specifically suited for harmonica.
The Audix FireBall is a dynamic microphone with sleek styling and a unique design. Well-suited for both chromatic and diatonic harmonicas, the FirebBall mic features a dent-resistant round grill with a deep red internal pop filter. Contoured to fit comfortably within the palm of your hand. A full-sized dynamic capsule featuring VLM (Very Lo Mass) technology provides big, full-bodied sound that is both clean and accurate.
The FireBall is resistant to feedback and is capable of handling sound pressure levels in excess of 140dB without distortion. Made to be cupped, this harmonica microphone will operate as if in an open-air environment even under the most demanding conditions. A smooth and uniform frequency response of 50Hz-16kHz and a cardioid polar pattern allow the FireBall to focus on the particular instrument being miked without picking up other instruments or ambient noise.
Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the FireBall™ is a professional dynamic instrument microphone intended for harmonica (both diatonic and chromatic) and beatbox. Clear, accurate and capable of handling sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB without distortion, the FireBall™ is ideally suited for both live stage and studio recording applications.
The FireBall™ is characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control and is equipped with a VLM™ (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural sound reproduction with exceptional transient response.
With a smooth, uniform frequency response of 50 Hz - 16 kHz, the FireBall™ is lightweight, compact, and comfortable to hold. Roadworthy construction includes a precision machined aluminum body, steel mesh grill, unique three stage marbled anodized finish, laser etched model and serial number, and Switchcraft® XLR connector.
The FireBall™ is a low impedance microphone; when using the FireBall™ with a guitar amplifier, a high quality low-high impedance transformer (such as T50K) is required.
