New budget Single-Diaphragm Mic 08/07/02Press Releas With the all-new B-1 (€ 119,00 MSRP exc. VAT), BEHRINGER complements its line of professional microphones with a single-diaphragm condenser microphone that was especially designed with home-studio owners and musicians in mind. The B-1 is capable of reproducing sound with incredible accuracy, realism and sensitivity and meets today’s musicians and recording engineers demand of clarity and dynamic range in both vocal and instrumental performances. The B-1 features a shock-mounted 1” gold-sputtered single-diaphragm capsule and delivers an exceptionally wide frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz enhanced by a pronounced presence boost with a level peak at around 12 kHz, which makes equalization unnecessary in many recording situations. Its cardioid polar pattern, switchable high-pass filter and -10 dB pad, maximum SPL of 148 dB and unusually low-noise transformerless FET circuitry make it the perfect tool for close miking in a variety of live and studio applications. The B-1 is +48 V phantom powered and features extremely rugged construction with a satin nickel-plated brass body. It comes in a rugged, attractive hard case with a suspension mount and windscreen.
