Countryman B3 overview

  • 1Description

The tan B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with TA5F Connector for Lectrosonics Wireless Transmitters from Countryman is a water-resistant, miniature lavalier microphone for capturing high-quality audio. It can be used in a variety of applications such as a tie-clip lavalier in interviews, a hair-hidden mic for drama, a water-resistant mic for water sports and hurricane reporting, or simply a small mic to hide in a prop flower vase.

The capsule is resistant to moisture, which allows for placement in the hair or on bare skin, and its omnidirectional polar pattern minimizes handling noise, wind noise, and plosives (popping). Furthermore, a variety of skin-matching colors are available. The B3's cable terminates to a TA5F connector for direct connection to a Lectrosonics M185 or M187 wireless bodypack transmitter. Additionally, a carrying case, two cable clips, a windscreen, and three protective caps are also included.

Unobtrusive
Looks great when you want to see it, virtually disappears when you don't. The B3 is easily hidden in hair or on costumes, with five colors to match clothing, hair, and skin tones. Use a felt tip marker to color the white caps for near-perfect concealability. Never suffer the hassle and degraded sound quality of under-clothing miking again.
Rugged and Reliable
The B3 is resistant to makeup, sweat, and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps, and works well in hair or on the body. The protective caps are easily removed for cleaning or replacement, and the aramid-reinforced cable gives it world-class survivability.
Refined Sound Quality
The B3 provides high-quality audio with low distortion at SPL up to 150 dB on 48V phantom power. The aramid cable and thin diaphragm combine to offer low handling noise. The flat frequency response accurately captures voice or instruments, and the small size makes the B3 easy to position for ambient noise and feedback rejection.
Versatile
Changeable protective caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. Versions are available for different speaking or singing styles, with high overload capability for recording instruments.
Sensitivity
Standard, for most uses.

    Countryman B3 reviews

    B3 Omni Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with TA5F Connector for Lectrosonics Wireless Transmitters (Tan) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, solid build, good sound quality. We have replaced tram mics in our Lectrosonic wireless kits with these units and have had them in service for several weeks now with no issues. The crew used these for several days straight in hot conditions on talent that moved a lot, moisture and clothing rustle were not issues. The mic heads are small and easily hideable using Rycote undercovers and stickies. We haven't had need to use any of the accessories yet, but I'm a little concerned for the durability of the plastic tie clips so I'm hesitant to give it 5 stars, but I will.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Wireless Lav For Any System I like these wireless mics better than the Sanken COS11-D that I previously bought for my Lectrosonics L Series. They may not have the fidelity of the Sanken mics, but they are very clear sounding with nice low end presence (without it being too much). I prefer these lavs over others for their all around great sound while being extremely durable.. These can withstand heavy use, while the Sanken COS11-D metal windscreen quickly was scraped and dented in regular use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value priced lav mic I use the mic with a Lectrosonics wireless transmitter for commercial and short film production. I have purchased a few of these mics for different production companies I work for, and have always been impressed with its performance in the field. Great size, clear audio, nice little set-up with its case and variety of caps for different frequency response.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The B3 is GREAT!!! These mics are used for all our newscasts throughout the day, 7 days a week. It has a very clean and clear sound. A drawback would be that the capsule sometimes come loose and the mic cuts out until you can get it screwed back on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mic. Worth the money. I was looking for a higher quality mic got my Lectrosonic wireless. I am happy with my purchase. It's small, high quality and appears to be durable. The sound quality is also very good.
