APEX565

Online

The Apex565 is particularly suited for many different types of instruments including sax, trumpet, trombone, woodwinds, acoustic (especially classical) guitars, cello, Double Bass and drums. It has also been successfully utilized (with user modifications to the clamp assembly) on violins and violas, accordions and ducilmers.

Don't let its size fool you. This microphone handles the high SPL you would expect when close miking a tom or brass wind instrument. The Apex565's miniature design comes complete with shockmount assembly and gooseneck clamp, perfect for safe attachment to brass instruments, conga rims and drum rims without damaging or breaking the chrome or lacquer. It's unobtrusive, easy to attach to any instrument and almost impossible to accidentally dislodge, even during enthusiastic live performances.

Features

• Perfect Live Mic for Use on Toms, Brass and Woodwind Instruments

I use them (and the older 165) with a diatonic accordion, an Irish bouzouki and a banjo! They can be used with almost anything, wind, brass, strings, percussion... I was told that the XLR connector contains a pre-amp fed by the phantom power. All and all an excellent small mic, much cheaper than other brands and equally performing.
