The MB5055HC Miniature Condenser Microphone with MicroBoom Rod features the company's M1255B-HC hi-output condenser microphone capsule with a hypercardioid polar pattern. The system offers a sleek, unobtrusive overhead microphone and integrated boom for choir capturing, orchestral recordings, theater, presentations, ensemble vocal capturing, and similar applications. The boom measures 50" (127cm) in length and is made of durable, lightweight carbon fiber. It can be easily mounted onto any microphone stand and allows for total control over the angle, rotation, and position of the carbon fiber rod. Additionally, the microphone capsule is positioned on a flexible metal gooseneck that allows for further flexibility and placement. There is a mini-XLR connector at the stand's base and an internally shielded cable, which is impervious to noise caused by RF interference. A 25' cable is also included.
