The Audix FireBall V is a dynamic microphone primarily designed for close capturing of harmonica and other instruments that produce high Sound Pressure Levels (SPL) up to 140 dB without distortion. In addition to harmonica, the FireBall V is also ideal for capturing brass and woodwinds as well as vocals in live stage and studio.
The tight cardioid polar pattern rejects noise and off-axis audio at the sides of the capsule, minimizing noise and feedback. The 50 Hz to 16 kHz frequency response provides excellent detail and accuracy while minimizing low-frequency noise. The round, handheld design allows the user to hold the microphone close while applying a cupping technique with the other hand and has the added convenience of a volume control.
