Apex 460
The Apex460 tube condenser microphone is perfect for recording both critical vocals and instruments. The dual diaphragm multi-pattern design gives you nine different polar pattern settings to get the perfect microphone sound for every studio application.

The Apex460 features dual 1-inch gold sputtered 5-micron diaphragms in a shockmount capsule. The 12AT7 vacuum tube pre-amp and capsule is suspended in a solid machined casing to further reduce tube-induced noise. The included external shock-mount suspension virtually eliminates vibration and handling noise, while at the same time safely securing the microphone in any position needed during the recording process.

One unique feature of this microphone is the nine different selectable polar patterns easily available from the selector switch on the front panel of the external power supply. Rather than limiting the user to the three popular patterns (Omnidirectional, Cardioid, and Figure Eight pattern) most commonly available, the Apex460 has three gradient stages between each pattern.

This allows the studio engineer or home recordist far more versatility. In vocal applications where an omnidirectional pattern isn't quite 'fat' enough, but cardioid is too narrow, you now have three additional steps to find the right subtle mix between the two standard patterns. There are also three additional steps between cardioid and figure-8 pattern.

Due to their rugged construction, high SPL handling capability and affordable price, the Apex460 is also an outstanding choice for live sound reinforcement or live recording. They have proven themselves as overhead mics for drum kits, for guitar or bass cabinets where superior sound quality and high sound pressure handling is required, or as the mic of choice for saxophones, flutes, acoustic guitars or acoustic bass where subtlety and clarity is paramount.

  • Selectable Polar Patterns (Omni-Directional, Cardioid & Figure-8)
  • -10db Pad & Low-Frequency Roll-Off Switches On Mic Body
  • Warm, Extremely Smooth-Sounding FET Design
  • Wide Dynamic Range With Low Noise Floor
