Gooseneck microphone for accordion, recovery amp or possibly pianos, barrel organs etc..
Electret microphone requiring 48V phantom power on the table.
A version of CX-516W (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.
Supplied with 2 fixing pads to pass the microphone from one instrument to another.


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

Before that I used the AKG MicroMic.

Sound quality: from the microphone I was using previously, I found a good balance of sound, a medium neither aggressive nor tormented correct and finesse in the treble (this is important on a right hand accordion! !) Anyway, sounds quite good.
Construction: correct and without significant risk of breakage (no small tabs that break ...) Reliable (no failures, no spitting).

I find nothing wrong with this microphone, perhaps an aesthetic that might be a little more current?

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