Large Diaphragm Studio Condenser – all tube, multi-pattern, shock mount clip, seven pin cable

The Apex460B is a high performance wide diaphragm vacuum tube studio condenser microphone that delivers incredible versatility and tone. Competing easily with far more expensive microphones in its class, the Apex460B is an outstanding choice as the main microphone for any professional studio, home studio, or any of the computer based direct to hard drive recording system.

The 12AT7 tube in the Apex460B's preamp stage offers warmth and a smooth transient response not available in solid-state microphone design. The Apex460B has nine different selectable polar patterns easily available from a selector switch on the front panel of the external power supply.

Rather than limiting the user to the three popular patterns (Omnidirectional, Cardioid, and Figure Eight pattern) most commonly available, the Apex460B has three gradient stages between each position. This allows the studio engineer or home recordist far more versatility especially in vocal applications where an omnidirectional pattern isn't quite 'fat' enough, but cardioid is too narrow.

Due to their rugged construction, high SPL handling capability and affordable price, the Apex460B is also an outstanding choice for live sound reinforcement or live recording. They have proven themselves as a versatile overhead microphone for drum kits, for guitar or bass cabinets where superior sound quality and high sound pressure handling is required. They are also the mic of choice for saxophones, flutes, acoustic guitars or acoustic bass where subtlety and clarity is paramount.
