The Countryman B3 Omnidirectional Microphone is a miniature lavalier microphone for general public speaking, interviews, stage performances, video and film shoots, houses-of-worship applications and much more.

The capsule measures 0.2" 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).

A wide variety of colors and connections are available for use with various wireless transmitters. This version is tan and features a Locking 1/8" (3.5mm) Mini connector for Sennheiser transmitters.

Miniature Unobtrusive Capsule
The miniature capsule measures only 0.2" (5.08mm) in diameter. The B3 is available in various colors that will virtually render the entire microphone invisible against the skin. This version B3 is tan 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 Strong Vocals
The B3 is available in two sensitivities. This version is optimized to accurately capture strong audio signals without peak distortion and noise, also providing optimum results when placed in hair for theater applications.

        Comments about Countryman B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Tan):

        I work for a small theatre company. We bought 3 of these tan B3s. On one of them the connector was unscrewed and open. At first the connector appeared broken (the threads seemed not to line up and it would not screw together), and it was causing a lot of static. Later we were able to get the piece together and now it is working fine.

        Really it was just a frustration that the mic was not ready to go when we bought it.

        Now that we have it working all three mics work great.
