The B-5 is a professional gold-sputtered diaphragm condenser microphone featuring two interchangeable capsules for different pickup patterns (cardioid and omnidirectional). It is good for acoustic instrument, vocal and overhead miking applications. Its ultra low-noise transformerless FET input eliminates low frequency distortion. The -10 dB attenuator can be used with high volume signal sources, while the low-cut filter eliminates floor rumble. The microphone is delivered in a rugged hard case with stand adapter and windscreen.
