Mic for bass accordion, percussion. Fixing clamp, small swivel gooseneck.
Electret microphone requiring 48V phantom power on the table.
A version of CX-506W (W for wireless) are, in mini-XLR for connection to the HF or Shure brand, or use a box mix of PS-PS-500 battery.


Use since 2010: I spent my accordion and singing in HF to play among the dancers.

Before that I used the AKG microphones MicroMic or other kind tie.

Sound quality: from the microphones I was using previously, I found a good balance of sound, a medium neither aggressive nor tormented. In short, perfectly fine for bass.
Construction: correct and without risk of breakage important. Reliable (no failures, no spitting). Mounting clamp and convenient mini-gooseneck not bulky.

Small problem: the gooseneck does not rotate 360 ​​degrees so depending on where you want to capture, we must put the clamp in one direction or the other. It's a shame, it should not change much in the manufacture ...

Price / quality: unbeatable! 90 euros for a micro mini-gooseneck good quality, with its built-in phantom power XLR, what more ;-)
