Overview

The Audix f9 small-diaphragm condenser mic is known for its clear, accurate response-particularly in the upper-frequency range. Ideally suited for a wide variety of acoustic instruments, the Audix f9 mic is an excellent choice for cymbals, overhead, percussion table, and ambient room miking.

With a uniformly controlled cardioid polar pattern, the Audix f9 microphone captures instrument acoustics and at the same time isolates their sounds from the rest of the instruments on stage. The Audix f9 is equipped with a 16mm pre-polarized capsule with a gold vapor diaphragm and a frequency response of 40Hz-20kHz.

The Audix f9 is ultra easy to position, durable, and manufactured with high standards and tight tolerances. Its roadworthy construction includes a precision-cast zinc-alloy body, black finish, laser-etched model number, steel mesh grill, gold XLR connector, and a tension-fit heavy-duty nylon mic clip.

User tips:
The f9, an excellent choice to mic any kind of acoustic instrument. It has a cardioid pick-up pattern, which helps to eliminate sound from other instruments on stage from bleeding into the microphone. However, the f9 is much more sensitive than a dynamic and will pick-up sound from a greater distance. The acoustic nature of the instrument being miked, along with how loud it is, will determine how far the microphone should be from the sound source. For example, the f9 can be placed 1 - 2 feet above the cymbals of a drum kit and still pick up plenty of sound, whereas for a acoustic guitar, the mic will need to be placed within 8 - 12 inches to be effective. Allow a distance of 2-3 feet between microphones to avoid phase issues.

Phantom power operation:
The f9 will NOT operate without phantom power. The f9 requires 12-48V phantom power, which is available on most professional mic preamps and mixing devices. If phantom power is not available on your equipment, you will have to purchase a phantom power supply (such as the Nady SMPS #180162, or ART Phantom I #180266) ). Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone from a PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system is turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud popping noise, which could seriously damage the speakers in the PA system.

Audix f9 Condenser Mic

By Mike G.

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Audix F9 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

The Audix f9 Condenser Mic is a very versatile mic in that it can be used in a pair configuration for either live or, studio drum overhead mics, and they are excellent in that application (i.e. high SPL, full-sounding) but, they can also be used for general recording purposes for acoustic guitar, strings, etc. I have 2 of these as a part of the Audix FP7 kit and I would highly recommend them.

Comments about Audix F9 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

This product is not very good I would save your money and buy a better over head. It has horrable top end around 10-20k which for symbols makes them Krispy. It has a weird resonance in the 4K area that is just sounds god awful. These mics are a cheap and sound cheap I would rather use an SM58 as an over head than this!
