Neat Microphones King Bee Condenser Mic

Just like a bee hive, the King Bee is all about reproduction. Its large-diaphragm condenser design is ideal for applications requiring low noise and high sensitivity -- the King Bee excels for vocals, drums, electric guitar, piano, and most acoustic instruments, including complex sources like saxophones, flutes, and strings. Thanks to custom Class A discrete electronics, careful mechanical design, and a precision, gold-sputtered microphone capsule, what you hear at the output is what the King Bee hears at its input.

The King Bee package includes the Honeycomb pop filter and Beekeeper custom shockmount, and is also compatible with the optional Beeline quad conductor XLR mic cable. With outstanding versatility and sound quality, the King Bee will quickly become one of the most useful -- and commanding -- mics in your hive.

Features:

- Large-diaphragm condenser mic
- Class A discrete electronics
- Gold microphone capsule
- Perfect for vocals, drums, guitar, piano, and more
- Includes pop filter and shock mount

Honeycomb Bee Pop Filter:
- Eliminates/reduces "P" popping sounds
- Protects against the accumulation of moisture on the microphone element
Immediately improves the sound of vocal recordings
- Simple and easy to set up
- Stops plosives from reaching the microphone while leaving the sound uncolored
- Designed for transparency of audio passage and does not interfere with the movement of sound towards the microphone

Beekeeper Shockmount:
- Eliminates unwanted low frequency rumble and vibrations that are physically transmitted via direct surface-to-surface contact with the microphone
- Simple and easy to set up
- Perfect for isolating the mic from vibrations transmitted through the mic stand
- Adjustable angles lock the into place

"Neat King Bee"
Overall: Too bad it's funny lookin'. Great mic. Quite similar to the Blue Blueberry ($1000.00). Grab these while they are cheap. I've got a pair.

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.
