Studiospares SB400 Boundary Microphone

The SB400s capsule is cardioid which gives it greater directionality making it ideal for a variety of applications from conferences to theatre. The low profile of the microphone body prevents comb filtering by reducing the delay between reflections, keeping phase interference above the audible range. Some applications for directional boundary mics are picking up actors' voices onstage in drama or musicals, picking up the footwork of dance troupes, picking up speech at conference tables and boardrooms and recording small musical ensembles or soloists. A smooth wide response is guaranteed by using a back electret capsule powered by phantom powering or any voltage between 9 and 52 volts.

The underside of the die cast alloy body has a rubber pad to avoid stage borne interference. Output is via a mini 3 pin XLR. Supplied complete with a connecting lead for conventional 3 pin XLR inputs. The response is substantially flat from 50Hz - 20kHz. Max SPL 130dB. Designed to withstand the rigors of the road and represents incredible value for money.

    I used two of these microphones placed on the stage at the front to pick up actor's voices in a theatre. They replaced a pair of small-diaphragm condenser microphones on stands. These are much less visible but provide a higher gain-before-feedback, a double win for live sound. The sound quality is plenty good enough for speech. I placed these on sheets of thin foam to reduce footstep noise. The producer and director of the production both commented that the sound was much clearer with the boundary microphones. Definitively a win, and at this price you can't go wrong.

    The packaging was really good quality, while the mic itself feels really well built. Heavy enough to feel substantial. I can't comment on sound quality yet, but it looks and feels good.

    I used two of these above a proscenium stage,with a Studiospares mic. combiner, to feed sound to an induction loop amplifier.
