The Easy Way to Put a Mic on Your Ensemble!

The MicroBoom MB8450 mic/boom system pairs the fantastic, long-reach Audix 84" MicroBoom arm with their high-quality M1250B mini cardioid condenser mic; it's an outstanding all-in-one package for overhead stage miking of orchestras and choirs, ambient room miking, drum-miking, and more. The boom in the MicroBoom MB8450 package can be used in either a horizontal or a vertical position, while the upper end of the boom holds a mini-XLR connector to securely hold the mic in place. The mic has a built-in low noise preamplifier so no bulky external supply is needed. If you want a clean, professional, and elegant miking solution, you'll find it with the Audix MicroBoom MB8450!

Audix MicroBoom MB8450 Cardioid Condenser Mic/Boom System at a Glance:
  • M1250B Mini Cardioid Condenser Mic
  • MicroBoom-84 Boom Arm

M1250B Mini Cardioid Condenser Mic
The Audix M1250B delivers superb sound. It has a fully integrated preamp and detachable cable, as well as strong shielding from interference. It's a great overhead mic for choir and group vocals, on acoustic instruments, for ambient room miking, symphonic area miking, speech presentations, cymbals, and more.

MicroBoom-84 Arm
This high-performance, long-reaching MicroBoom arm combines with the M1250B condenser microphone to provide discreet, simple-to-use overhead miking. This 84" carbon fiber boom attaches to any microphone stand, and it weighs in at only 4 ounces. Carbon fiber is one of the most lightweight and durable materials on the planet — which is why it's being used to make parts for race bikes, aerospace crafts, motorcycles, and more. The MicroBoom is certainly discrete, but it's also rugged; it has a mini-XLR connector to securely hold the microphone in place while high-quality Mogami cable is used internally to deliver excellent sound to the bottom of the boom, where a mini-XLR male connector awaits.
