Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier for Yamaha Recorders with Left-Ch Audio & Standard Gain (Tan)


Countryman B6 Overview

The tan B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier from Countryman is a miniature lavalier microphone measuring only 0.1" in diameter. It features a 3.5mm locking connector and connects to select Yamaha Pocketrak recorders with audio on the left channel. The B6 microphone provides high-quality audio with low distortion at SPL up to 120 dB on 48V phantom power. The aramid cable combined with the ultra-thin diaphragm ensure low handling noise. And the tiny size combined with natural sound pickup make the microphone easy to position, for ambient noise and feedback rejection.

The included changeable protective caps (+0, +4, and +8 dB) provide moisture resistance, allowing you to adjust the frequency response to suit different applications or to match other microphones. Each of the three omni caps has a different high-frequency response characteristic that controls the amount of crispness or sibilance (response at 15 kHz). This microphone ships with the attached +4 dB protective cap that boosts the perceived amount of presence in your sound, while leaving the lower frequencies unchanged. You can switch to the 0 dB cap in case of problems with high-frequency feedback.

With low-handling noise and a rugged construction, the B6 microphone is a suitable choice for theater, broadcast, places of worship, and general lavalier applications.
