Kick Drum, Cajon, Piano, Speech, Conferencing, Room Miking / Ambience, Stage Floor Miking
Bullet-proof, built like a tank and ready for the road, your secret weapon for a variety of applications such as kick drums and other high SPL sources. The BL8 is a half-cardioid boundary microphone, utilizing the same capsule as the celebrated sE8 small-diaphragm condenser. Its hand-crafted, true condenser capsule utilizes an ultra-thin three-micron gold-sputtered diaphragm for superior transient response.
Designed to reproduce low frequencies with stunning accuracy, the BL8 is perfect in combination with our V Kick, but can also be used alone without an additional outer kick drum mic. It is also compatible with The Kelly Shu Flatz™ Isolation System, making it ideal for touring applications.
The BL8 utilizes transformerless Class-A circuitry to ensure plentiful headroom without distortion, while its low-noise electronics deliver transparency and clarity. The integrated low-cut filter and optional EQ shaping switch make it a very versatile microphone, excelling at immersive ambience recording, detailed room miking, and it can even be used on acoustic pianos.
Thanks to its switchable attenuation pad, the BL8 keeps high-SPL sources from overloading your mixer’s input. Robustly built, the BL8 features an all-metal construction, a dent-proof grille, and gold-plated XLR contacts to ensure long-term reliability.
