Description

Choir microphones have always presented a unique design and installation challenge—the traditional solution is to use an angle guide on the microphone's lead to aim towards the performance venue. The problem with this approach is that either a very small microphone had to be used to keep aimable weight within practical limits—or locate the microphone's electronics at some considerable distance from the element—inviting losses and noise. The ChoirMic Series solves all of these problems. Earthworks' C30 cardioid condenser hanging gooseneck microphone provides pristine audio quality without spotlighting and more gain before feedback while picking up almost no sound from the rear of the microphone. It is ideal for miking choirs and orchestra or band in front of the choir.
