The mic is enclosed in a rugged, low reflectance matte black finish making it ideal for instrument micing in any studio, broadcast or live applications where a high performance overhead mic is required. The APEX190 requires phantom power to operate, and is shipped with a microphone clip and windsock.
APEXApex 110 Condenser Microphone$0.00
Apex 110 Condenser Microphone
The APEX110 is also the ideal multi application, compact studio condenser microphone. For the budget conscious studio owner looking for one all-purpose condenser, the APEX110 is great for vocals and easy to record with. Crisp top end and predictable proximity effect characteristics mean the APEX110 performs amazingly well with digital recording systems, computer-based studios and high performance analog recording systems. It also can effectively be used for recording woodwinds, strings and acoustic guitars. As a live sound reinforcement mic, its compact size, light weight, and impressive specifications make it the mic of choice on lecterns or in any broadcast environment where performance is required from an unobtrusive source.
APEXApex 460 Tube Condenser Microphone$0.00
Apex 460 Tube Condenser Microphone
The APEX460 Vacuum Tube Condenser Microphone continues to raise the bar on performance while continuing to lower the price barrier for studio quality microphones. The APEX460 Tube Microphone is an aggressively priced, yet superior sounding, large diaphragm studio condenser capable of competing easily with much more expensive microphones in this class. One unique feature of this microphone is the nine different selectable polar patterns easily available from the selector switch on the front panel of the external power supply. Rather than limiting the user to the three popular patterns (Omnidirectional, Cardioid, and Figure Eight pattern) most commonly available, the APEX460 has three gradient stages between each pattern. This allows the studio engineer or home recordist far more versatility. In vocal applications where an omnidirectional pattern isn't quite 'fat' enough, but cardioid is too narrow, you now have three additional steps to find the right subtle mix between the two standard patterns. There are also three additional steps between cardioid and figure-8 pattern. Improved quality in affordable recording equipment has brought serious power to the home studio enthusiast or small project studio. The microphone is the first, and often most important link in the signal chain. The APEX460 is high performance, yet truly affordable large diaphragm condenser microphone. They are an outstanding choice for the main microphone for any professional studio, home studio, or any of the computer based direct to hard drive recording systems now available. Due to their rugged construction, high SPL handling capability and affordable price, the APEX460 is also an outstanding choice for live sound reinforcement or live recording. They have proven themselves as overhead mics for drum kits, for guitar or bass cabinets where superior sound quality and high sound pressure handling is required, or as the mic of choice for saxophones, flutes, acoustic guitars or acoustic bass where subtlety and clarity is paramount. Vocalists can use the proximity effect to their advantage, adding fullness and more "bottom end" to the voice. Experienced vocalists can easily incorporate it part of their overall microphone technique. Again, experimentation with mic placement during the recording process is the key. The omnidirectional polar pattern does not exhibit this effect
APEXApex 170 microphone$0.00
Apex 170 microphone
The APEX170 is designed for use in any live sound reinforcement or recording application where a tight, controlled pickup pattern is preferred. The APEX170's cardioid polar pattern reduces unwanted background noise and feedback potential. Its smooth response and clear imaging make it an ideal choice for acoustic instruments like violin, viola or guitar. With a frequency response from 80 to 15,000Hz, it also suits cello, background brasses or acoustic basses where isolation and performance are needed. The APEX170 is also a very cost-effective solution to overhead mic'ing a drum kit, or micing the area around a percussionist. The APEX170 also has the ability to power its electret condenser capsule with phantom power OR a single 1.5V AA internal battery when phantom power is not easily available.

Apex-DP1 Drum Microphone Pac
The Apex-DP1 drum pack contains four of the essential dynamic microphones for miking a basic drum kit. Designed for use in most live applications where cymbals and overheads don't need to be reinforced, but the kick, snare and toms needs to get into the mix ''with authority''. One Apex125 large diaphragm dynamic microphone is included in the package. Ideally suited to handling the extremely high SPL and extended low frequencies that most bass drums can produce, the mic's element is protected in a solid zinc die-cast outer casing and can easily handle 165dB SPL at the input. The three Apex126 mics in the Apex-DP1 are designed from the ground up for a drum kit, and are ideally suited for the demanding job of micing the snare and toms. Made of a rugged zinc die-cast casing to protect the mic's elements from the occasional stick hit that is inevitable over a drumhead, the Apex126 is the perfect blend of performance and toughness. A cardioid polar pattern offers maximum rejection 180 degrees off axis, handling high SPL with a minimum of cross talk in the drum mix. The Apex126 can easily handle up to 145dB SPL at the input, and comes equipped with a rubber shock-absorbing clip made for mounting on the drum rim. This clip is solid, designed not to shift position or to damage your snare's chrome or brass rim. Features ? One Apex125 large diaphragm dynamic microphone ? Three Apex126 dynamic microphones ? Three Apex-DC drum rim clips for mounting Apex126 The APEX110 requires phantom power to operate, and has a frequency response of 70 to 18,000Hz, and a 65dB signal to noise ratio.
