Small hanging capacitor omni-directional microphone for unobtrusive stage use.

  • Hanging microphone for live stage use or recording
  • Omni-directional pick-up pattern

The BM 180 stage microphone is a compact member of the micon series of studio condenser microphones.

The BM 180 comprises a BMK 180 omni-directional microphone capsule and the BMV 190 microphone preamplifier.

A classic 48V phantom powered condenser microphone design, the BM 180 ensures a high degree of intelligibility and clarity for speech, vocals and music.

The design makes it particularly suited to suspension above stages. Sound engineers in Theatre, Opera and Television will be particularly impressed by the visually unobtrusive appearance of the microphone.

Use of a special capsule with a cardioid characteristic achieves excellent attenuation of undesired acoustic interference in the vicinity. The suspension coupling provides a secure positioning and precise orientation of the microphone.

The microphone has a balanced frequency response and ensures a neutral capture of sound. The electronic circuitry employed generates a negligible noise level. The low output impedance means that XLR cable extensions can be used where required.

A LEMO system provides an easy way to exchange the BMK 180 omni-directional capsule with a BMK 190 cardioid capsule should this be required

Setting up
The stage microphone capsule is attached to the suspension coupling with a swivel clip. After connecting to the microphone capsule, the connecting cable is plugged into the BMV 190 pre-amplifier and the microphone is powered from the 48V phantom power supply via a 3 pin XLR.

Finish: dark bronze
