The ISOMAX 2 is a Countryman classic, still delivering the industry’s tightest pattern control for an all-purpose mic. Available in omni, cardioid, hypercardioid, and bidirectional/figure 8 versions, the ISOMAX 2 offers truly frequency-independent patterns unlike competing mics that become omnidirectional at low frequencies. This precise response captures strings, wind, brass and percussion beautifully, with exceptional gain before feedback and excellent rejection of the rest of the band. What’s more, they’re so affordable, you’ll find plenty of ways to use them.
- Textbook-perfect polar patterns for excellent stereo separation and rejection of unwanted sounds.
- Very low distortion at the high sound levels encountered inside instruments, with superflat frequency response for an uncolored, very clean sound.
- Directional pattern is frequency independent, so the microphone doesn’t become omni at low frequencies.
- Excellent gain before feedback
- Handles very high SPL.
