NAMM06: New Boundary Microphone From Sennheiser
Any colour as long as it's off-white or black

Sennheiser have unveiled their new boundary microphone in the ‘evolution’ line: the e 912. A companion to the e 901, a boundary model specially developed for bass drums, the e 912 has been designed for picking up speech, vocals and acoustic instruments, especially pianos and concert grands. According to Stephan Scherthan, Sennheiser´s product manager for wired microphones, "The e 912 is an ideal solution for a wide range of applications - from musical instruments to theater or opera house stages, from conferences to churches or lecterns."
The e 912 is a prepolarized condenser microphone with half-cardioid pick-up pattern. It has a wide frequency response (from 20 to 20,000 Hertz) and a maximum sound pressure level of 136 dB. Its very flat housing makes the microphone nicely inconspicuous, although it is extremely robust and can well cope with rough treatment.
A rubber plate on the underside of the e 912 ensures that vibrations are not transmitted; it has mounting slots underneath enabling the microphone to be installed securely on a stage, on conference tables or lecterns. The e 912 weighs in at 350 g, enabling it to be stably positioned even where installations are not fixed. The preamplifier electronics are already integrated into the microphone; the gold-plated XLR-3 connector is surrounded by the enclosure in such a way that the connector of the microphone cable is also protected. The e 912 is available in two colors - off-white and black - that help it blend in nicely with the installation environment.. More info:
