Product Description

The Audix MB5055's 50-inch carbon boom allows you to place a high output Audix M1255B mic (supplied with the MB5055) wherever you need exceptional coverage and unsurpassed audio fidelity. Equipped with an adjustable clutch for mic stand mounting, the laser thin carbon fiber boom is very light, very portable, and non reflective so that it never blocks the action even in video applications.

Features

- Lighweight, rigid
- Portable, easy to position
- Clean, elegant appearance
- Exceptional sound quality
- Attaches to any mic stand
- Can be used horizontally or vertically

The MB5055 was designed for choir or group vocal applications where you need to place the M1255B mic capsule high enough to capture the top tier singers, at stage front where there is minimal to no mic coverage, or for overhead micing at recitals and symphonic productions. The MB5055-M1255B MicroBoom combination provides fast and easy mic placement and uncompromised audio quality live or in the studio.

Applications:

- Overhead mic for choir, group vocal
- Acoustic instruments
- Ambient room micing
- Symphonic area micing
- Speech, presentation, podiums
- Cardioid pattern

The MB5055-MB1255B MicroBoom has complete immunity from RF interference caused by cell phones and GSM devices and the black matte finish minimizes glare in video applications. Requires 18-52 volts phantom power and ships with 25-foot cable (mini XLR to standard XLR connector), mic stand adapter mount and clutch, and windscreen.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "my experience"
Overall: This microphone is the best that I used for for miking my choir and ensembles. when I bought it I was surprised that a $400 mic is small with high sensitively, it pics up up the sound so well that you can even hear every part in great quality. plus its easy on the eyes the carbon fiber micro boom lets you see everybody without distraction. Not only that you can turn the microphone into a hanging mic all you have to do is buy a holder. so all the $150 hanging mics in most churches are not even close to this mic, imagine 3 of the $150 micophones inside one of m1255B microphone. Thats how perfect this mic is. So lets say you want to buy 4 or more of the cheaper microphones for a choir of 40 people, is it really worth it? Verses this mic youll need only 2 because one of the M1255B covers 20 people. Overall no other mic pleased me for miking a choir and recording. I recomend this mic to anybody that has choir. Infact if you have the a choir with a band including a drummer you can buy the M1255B hypercardiod itll focus on the voices in the choir, that way your choir will stand out perfectly in the midst of a band. For a decent person it is wise to not spend less than $400 on a microphone that is going to be used for choirs and over 700 unless you go for better quality and your rich. so buy this mic and youll be amazed like I was.

While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
