Neat Worker Bee II Cardioid Condenser Microphone

A budget-friendly fave, updated with a classy black body, the 2nd-gen Worker Bee delivers clean, uncolored recordings on voiceover, vocals, and instruments.

The Neat Worker Bee II is a solid-state cardioid condenser microphone with an internally shock-mounted, medium-sized 25mm capsule and discrete Class A electronics that can handle high sound pressure levels with a wide frequency response and dynamic range. The ideal creation tool for recording, podcast, and streaming applications, it sounds great on guitar amps, brass, live recordings, and drums, while retaining a level of detail that brings out the nuances in vocals, spoken voice, and "plucked" instruments such as acoustic guitar and percussion. Let a Worker Bee II loose in your home or studio and you'll quickly be rewarded with the hardest working mic in the industry!
