Product Description

Designed with home-studio owners and musicians in mind, the B-1 features a 1 in. capsule that captures your sounds with incredible realism, sensitivity, and accuracy. Its wide frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz is enhanced by a pronounced presence boost, making equalization unnecessary in many cases. Its cardioid polar pattern, switchable high-pass filter, and -10 dB pad, SPL of 138 dB and unusually low inherent noise make it perfect for close miking and extremely flexible. The B-1 also comes with a carrying case, shock mount, and windscreen.

Features

- Pressure gradient transducer with shock-mounted 1 in. gold-sputtered, single-diaphragm capsule
- Exceptionally wide frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz with pronounced presence boost
- Transformerless FET input circuitry for extremely low inherent noise
- Cardioid polar pattern ideal for diverse studio and live applications
- Switchable low-frequency roll-off and input attenuation
- +48 V phantom powered
- Extremely rugged construction with satin nickel-plated brass body
- Delivered in a rugged hard case with suspension mount and windscreen

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (302 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Microphone which makes you feel good, smart and satisfied."
Sound: Microphone sounds very good, I am not dissappointed at all. I would highly reccomend this microphone especially for the price. I recorded my son playing our upright piano and I am very happy with the sound. The recording was comparable to piano CD's we have. For those people who are interested I placed two microphones (the ones I am reviewing) near the back of the piano. The recording and sound was pretty clean, especially considering it was a home recording). I wanted and was able to capture a pretty "clean" sound, from this point one can add reverb to replicate different hall effects if I desire. Feature: The feature set for this microphone is absolutely the best and of high quality. The shock mount is impressive as well as the microphone carrying case. Quality: Very good quality all around. The microphone itself has a nice heavy solid feel. It is also nice to look at. Everything about this microphone including the accesories gives one a quality feel. Value: I shopped around for microphones, compared specifications, look at the functionality, looked at accessories as well as read reviews. There is no other microphone you can touoh for this price given all of the above. I bought two and may buy two more. Manufacturer Support: I haven't dealt with the company yet, but I am giving them the benefit of the doubt, there should be a NA rating along with the 1 to 10 rating. The instruction booklet should give more information/pictures in how to use the shock mount as well as explaining that there is a 3/8" brass adapter which needs to be removed to fit the standard 5/8" microphone mount. The Wow Factor: Aesthetically this is a very appealing microphone. The foam head accessorie is a bit large, brings some chuckels but isn't unattractive. Besides the microphone all the accesories have an appealing and quality look and feel to them as well. Before I even opened up the microphone case my wife saw the microphone case and was impressed with the case design. One nice thing about this design is that it is unique enough that people will identify with it quickly. Overall: If one is interested in recording I would absolutely reccomend this microphone. One thing I would suggest is to buy 30' of XLR cable, I bought 20' thinking it would be enough and I am about 10' short. My reccomendation would be to buy one 20' XLR cable and one 10' XLR cable per microphone. The enviroment I am in is home recording.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Unbelieveable value!"
Sound: Amazing sound for the price, sold my Neumann TLM 103 after comparing with the B-1. Feature: A hard case, windscreen and shockmount on a mic at this price point is unheard of. Quality: Overall quite good but the same fit and finish of a Neumann, it's more comparable to a Rode NT-2 (at 1/3 the price). Value: For the money amazing. If there is anything that can beat it at three times the price I'd be shocked. The Wow Factor: Very cool, makes vocals sound alive. Overall: Couldn't ask for anything more.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. 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.
