How do you sanitise your microphones against Covid-19?
Thanks to the Los Angeles based company, ViolaWave, this is simpler than ever.
The ViolaWave Bullet is a new ground-breaking sterilising system that will kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses (including Covid-19) on all your microphones within 3-5 minutes, and there is nothing else like the Bullet on the market at the moment.
A huge tragedy of the pandemic has been the loss of live music, entertainment and the arts, but there is hope on the horizon.
As regulations start to lift and the restrictions slowly come to an end, performers can begin their return to the stage but we must ensure that it is done as safely as possible for themselves, their colleagues, attendees of the events and the rest of the population.
Cleanliness and hygiene are now more important than ever, we have to do all that we can to make sure we do not spread the virus and our musical equipment and microphones are no exception to this.
How does it work?
So how does it work? Here’s the science behind it. This system uses a combination of Ultraviolet and Ozone lamps. The UVC light kills and inactivates the microorganisms, scrambling their DNA, stopping them from multiplying and performing their cellular functions. This is the same technology that is used by cleaning robots at airports and hospitals.
Unlike conventional spray disinfectants, ViolaWave's products do not need to be refilled. The Bullet is USB rechargeable using the cable that's included, it does not require any batteries so you can save those for your guitar pedals. The Bullet charges in roughly 30 minutes, and when we tried it, we managed to sterilise a whopping 19 microphones.
How to use
- You simply unscrew the cap.
- Insert your microphone.
- Reseal the cap.
- Press the button and your mic will be sterilised in 3-5 minutes.
Due to the size of the Bullet, it can accommodate a great range of condenser and dynamic microphones and its strong heavy-duty silicone body helps it fold down into this small packaging and fits into this box.
Who needs it?
The Bullet is essential for rehearsal and recording studios, broadcast and post-production, venues, musicians, PA hire, podcasting, open mic nights, karaoke and more. If you use a microphone you need to keep it clean and sterile, and the Bullet is the perfect solution.
