The K&K Sound CXM5 Saxophone Microphone is a clip-on microphone specially designed to deal with the unique challenges of amplifying the saxophone. Its linear sound condenser capsule is suitable for higher sound pressure levels, while still transmitting a crystal clear signal. The mic's soft cardioid polar pattern means that the musician can aim the microphone very close to the bell without losing brilliance.
K&K designed the CXM5 Saxophone Microphone to ensure that its transmission is free of any mechanical key noises by combining a flexible microphone head suspension, a gel embedded capsule mount, and a cushioned clamp. The specially designed goose neck retains 100% solid positioning.
The supplied CXM5 preamp/power unit powers the CXM5 microphone and features high grade pre-amplification with ultra low-noise circuitry, an active balanced output, an integrated volume control, minimum power consumption and a convenient belt-clip. The preamp works on either phantom power supplied via the XLR input or with a 9-volt battery (not included).
