No flash plug
Blue Microphones has expanded their enâ€¢CORE live stage microphone series with the addition of the enâ€¢CORE 100i, which they describe as
a versatile and rugged instrument microphone.
John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones, told us, "With the enâ€¢CORE 100i, we have taken our stage vocal mic technology and tailored it to instrument applications . Now, the entire band and background vocalists can enjoy the quality
and capabilities of the enâ€¢CORE series, whether it's in a club, church, or stadium."
Here's more details from Blue Microphones...
The enâ€¢CORE 100i gets its technology and rugged good looks from the enâ€¢CORE 100 dynamic vocal microphone,
but is designed with a wider and flatter frequency response to capture a variety of instruments and tighter polar
pattern to reduce off-axis noise. The mic is built around Blue's proprietary dynamic capsule with a custom-
designed diaphragm and coil windings that are matched to a tuned acoustic circuit, custom-built transformer for
low noise, and high-pass filter to reduce stage rumble. These matched components provide an accurate and
consistent sound even at high volume levels on stage.
While sporting a smaller grille for easy placement in tight spaces, the 100i shares the same road-worthy build as the
enâ€¢CORE 100 and 200, with a reinforced guard ring to protect the capsule, heavy cast zinc barrel for incredible
strength, and electroplated and hardened paint finishes for scratch resistance. Small side vents add to the unique
look of the enâ€¢CORE 100i while reducing resonances inside the capsule chamber and aiding in low frequency
response. Pricing and Availability:
The enâ€¢CORE 100i will be available in February 2010 for $89 MSRP at authorized Blue Microphone retailers.
