Every microphone has response patterns that mean results are affected by the position of the sound source relative to the microphone - so getting that mic into the best spot is definitely important. And while they're not usually the first type of mic to come to mind when thinking of recording, boom microphones definitely have an edge where positioning is concerned. So if you're open to thinking outside the box and you're looking for a mic with enough reach to handle some of the most awkward recording locations, this could be the right section to find exactly what you need. From the stage to the studio to the field, they can come in handy just about anywhere.

For an example of what a boom microphone can offer, check out the Audix MB5055 MICROBOOM-50 With M1255B Microphone. It's available with multiple polar patterns including cardioid and hypercardioid, so you can pick out the best fit for the kind of recording it will be used for. The capsule uses a 12mm gold vapor diaphragm that's designed to handle distance miking with ease and isn't affected by RF interference. It's a fantastic mic for choir, ensemble vocal, orchestral zone and location recording, and the 50" boom has enough reach to make it a good overhead microphone as well. Of course, if you need a little more distance, there's always the Audix MB8455 MICROBOOM-84, which packs the same capsule and increases boom length to 84".

Recording boom microphones are a lot more than just a novelty - for some recording needs, they're an essential. When you want to get a mic overhead but there's no good place to hang it, or if you need your microphone to reach out to one side to get over a cluttered equipment layout, one of these boom mics will have you covered. Add on the high-end capsules in a variety of polar patterns to suit all kinds of recording situations, and you're looking at an incredibly flexible package that's one heck of an ace to have up your sleeve during recording sessions that call for something more than a run-of-the-mill microphone.
