The volume knob is conveniently placed and simple to use while playing. Characterised with a smooth uniform frequency response of 50 Hz-15 kHz, the FireBall V will handle both live sound and studio applications. The microphone is clear, accurate, and capable of handling sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB without distortion.
In addition to harmonica, the FireBall V can also be utilised for saxophone, brass, flute, and vocals. Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output allow interference-free performance, even with long cable runs. The FireBall V consists of a durable steel mesh grill with a die cast zinc body and durable e-coat finish.
Recording: The FireBall V, which has a very sophisticated, high quality transducer element, is an excellent microphone for studio application. The tight cardioid pick-up pattern of the FireBall V, along with its ability to handle very high sound pressure levels, allows the microphone to be used for 'close miking' applications to record a wide variety of instruments. In this respect, studio miking techniques for the FireBall V would be similar to those used for live sound.
Live Sound: The FireBall V is a professional low impedance microphone. Therefore, you will achieve the best results if you use either mic level input on the PA system, or if you run directly into the low impedance input of an effects processor.
If you are running directly into a guitar amp, you will want to purchase the Audix T-50K low to high impedance matching transformer. This will provide you with the proper gain structure and help you maximise the sound quality through your amplifier.
