Audix F9 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Part of Audix's Fusion series, the F9 small-diaphragm cardioid condenser is a great fit for drum overheads, hi-hat, acoustic instruments, or as a room mic.
This Audix F9 all-purpose pencil condenser microphone is suited for instruments requiring detailed reproduction in mid-high and extended high end frequency ranges in live and studio applications. A wide cardioid pick-up pattern paired with high sensitivity, allows close, overhead and distance miking.

With its low impedance and balanced output, the Audix F9 instrument condenser microphone has interference-free performance. This microphone operates on phantom power of 12-48 V.

The Audix F9 is a professional pre-polarized condenser microphone used for stage and studio applications. It's an excellent choice to mic any kind of acoustic instrument, has a cardioid pick-up pattern which helps to eliminate sound from other instruments on stage from "bleeding" into the microphone. However, the Audix F9 is much more sensitive than a dynamic and will pick-up sound from a greater distance. The acoustic nature of the instrument being miked along with how loud it is will determine how far the microphone should be from the sound source. For example, the Audix F9 can be placed 1-2 feet above the cymbals of a drum kit and still pick up plenty of sound, whereas for a acoustic guitar, the mic will need to be placed within 8-12 inches to be effective. Allow a distance of 2-3 feet between microphones to avoid phase issues.

Characterized with a uniformly controlled cardioid polar pattern, the Audix F9 is designed to capture the acoustics of the instrument being miked while at the same time isolating read more it from the rest of the instruments on stage. The Audix F9 features a 16 mm pre-polarized capsule with gold vapor diaphragm and a frequency response of 40 Hz - 20 kHz.

The Audix F9 is easy to position, durable and manufactured with high standards and tight tolerances. The Audix F9 is manufactured with a precision cast zinc alloy body, durable black E-coat finish and gold plated XLR connector.
