The Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Microphone is a miniature lavalier microphone for virtually invisible operation during stage performances, video and film shoots, houses-of-worship applications and general public speaking.

The capsule measures only 0.1" in diameter and is resistant to moisture, which allows for placement in hair and on bare skin. In addition, its omnidirectional polar pattern minimizes handling noise, wind noise and plosives (popping), making the B6 a favorite in theater applications.

A wide variety of colors and connections are available for use with various wireless transmitters. This version is black and features a Switchcraft TA5FConnector connector for Lectrosonics transmitters.

Miniature Unobtrusive Capsule
The miniature capsule measures only 0.1" (2.54mm) in diameter. The B6 is available in various colors that will virtually render the entire microphone invisible against the skin. This version B6 is black and more information on which color suits you best, can be found on the Countryman support page.
Moisture Resistant Frequency Caps
Three frequency response altering caps provide flat, bright and very bright high-frequency enhancement. In addition the caps are resistant to moisture caused by perspiration, make-up, humidity, etc.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The omnidirectional polar pattern is most effective in minimizing wind noise, plosives (popping) and handling noise.
Sensitivity Optimized for General Speaking
The B6 is available in three sensitivities. This version is optimized to accurately capture general speaking without distortion and noise. Placement on the chest or lapel provide optimum results and is ideal for presentations, sermons, speeches, etc.

    Comments about Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Black):

    Its size make it a great choice when you need discreet mic placement. Often the head can be exposed and still be virtually invisible. The negative (fragile/easy to break) is also its greatest strength (so tiny and thin). Its a challenge if you feel you need to change out the response caps (maybe just for me?) but I'd give it 5 stars as a situational lav, not an every day lav.......... Oh yeah, sounds surprisingly good, too.

      Comments about Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Black):

      Great sounding and incredibly invisible lav. I use it in docs for interviews or in narrative film for actors with tiny voices and wide shots where you can't get the boom close in. It is tiny, easy to hide and sounds quite good, especially combined with a pro wireless system like a Lectro.
