The I2 maintains excellent pattern control and frequency response at all angles, for uncolored recordings and reduced feedback issues.
The instrument-specific mounts for the I2 provide positioning freedom, allowing you to direct the microphone pattern to capture the natural tone of your instrument
I2 Instument Microphone mounts are designed to minimize vibration noise, including the use of viscoelastic damping materials to reduce transmitted shocks and key noise for clear audio recordings.
The I2 Brass Instrument Mount has vibration-damping jaws that tightly grip the bell, with an adjustable wire that can be positioned at the center of the bell or placed to capture sound through the keys.
The positioning arm on the I2 Cello Mount allows for a variety of microphone positions, including under the bridge or over the F-hole. Make sure the silver (active) side is pointed toward the body.
Omnidirectional microphones pick up sound from all directions equally.
Cardioid rejects more ambient noise compared to an omni while providing a wide front-lobe for flexibility in placement.
Hypercardioid provides the most rejection of ambient noise but has a narrower front-lobe.
Bidirectional picks up sound equally from two directions, and are commonly used in mid-side recording setups.
Brand is the manufacturer of the wireless transmitter or digital recorder which will be used with the microphone.
- Model is the model number of the transmitter pack or digital recorder. Choose “Hardwired” for a phantom powered XLR3 connection.
The I2 Violin and Viola Microphone has been engineered from the ground up for smooth frequency response, low noise, and precise polar patterns with deep nulls and natural on- and off-axis response. Its tiny size makes it perfect for distance miking that is invisible on camera. Flexible new close miking techniques are aided by Countryman’s Violin and Viola Mount, which sits securely behind the bridge.
