MESSE11: AKG Launches BBB DFive Beatbox Microphone

Official microphone for international competitions, designed specifically to meet beatboxers' requirements      08/04/11

Here's the AKG press release...
Beatboxing, one of the "elements" of hip-hop, involves imitating drum-computer type sounds and other percussion rhythms using the mouth, nose, or throat. With no surprise, beatboxers need extremely reliable microphones. HARMAN's AKG designed the dedicated BBB Dfive to cater specifically to the needs of beatboxers. It has been developed in cooperation with the Beatbox BattleĀ® network, the largest Beatboxing community worldwide.
As one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality headphones, microphones and wireless systems for professional use, AKG designed the BBB DFive by taking its world renowned D5 to a new level of performance, improving the acoustic clarity of the microphone already praised for its performance and reliability. In order to optimize D5 for beatboxing use, AKG added an even more effective internal windscreen that prevents unwanted explosive sounds without altering the brilliant sound of the microphone.
"The response to BBB DFive has been overwhelmingly favorable," explained Alfred Reinprecht, VP Marketing, AKG. "We are pleased to see our beatbox-focused mic is even more popular now among these sophisticated acoustic performance artists. This microphone is becoming the new standard tool for beatboxing."
The microphone made its performance debut at the German Beatboxing Championships in Berlin this February. The two finalists also used their BBB DFive Beatbox microphones at major German TV shows.
In addition, the BBB DFive Beatbox Microphone comes in a new type of packaging - a cool looking can, and is available on www.BeatBoxBattle.com. Pricing and Availability:
119 Euro More information:
