Special Order

Put This Unobtrusive and Effective Boom Mic on Your Ensemble!

The MicroBoom MB8450HC mic/boom system pairs the fantastic, long-reach Audix 84" MicroBoom arm with their high-quality M1250B-HC mini hypercardioid 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 MB8450HC 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 MB8450HC!

Audix MicroBoom MB8450HC Hypercardioid Condenser Mic/Boom System at a Glance:
  • M1250B-HC Mini Hypercardioid Condenser Mic
  • MicroBoom-84 Boom Arm

M1250B-HC Mini Hypercardioid Condenser Mic
The Audix M1250B-HC delivers superb sound, and its hypercardiod pickup pattern offers excellent rejection of outside sound sources. It has a fully integrated preamp and detachable cable, as well as strong shielding from interference. the M1250B-HC makes a great overhead mic for choir and group vocals, on acoustic instruments, for symphonic area miking, speech presentations, cymbals, and more.

MicroBoom-84 Arm
Audix designed the MB8450HC system with ease of use, and its advanced boom design is also visually unobtrusive. The high-performance, long-reaching MicroBoom-84 arm combines with the M1250B-HC condenser microphone to provide very clean and effective 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.
