Time for Tea
The ZVEX TB-1 Tea Ball Microphone is actually built inside a stainless steel tea ball. It is designed for specialty use and will reject sounds from sources further than an inch away from its grill. On stage, in a loud environment, it can be plugged directly into a guitar amp that’s turned up to a level that would normally cause the mic to squeal. In a studio, when live recording a vocal track, it will reject the amplifiers and drums. The soft tea ball mesh protects your teeth and can be disassembled and washed in soapy water.
The Sennheiser Digital 6000 microphone system was designed to address the challenges of the shrinking UHF spectrum in live performance settings. The two-channel system incorporates Sennheiser’s Long Range transmission mode. The receiver is available in two versions, a bodypack and handheld transmitter, and a 19-inch rack-mount charging unit. Up to eight receiver units can be daisy-chained without the need for an additional antenna splitter.
Lewitt LCT 640 TS revolutionizes the recording process by allowing you to change your recording setup after the fact. When the large diaphragm condenser microphone is set to Dual Output Mode, its front and rear diaphragms use two independent circuits. Any desired polar pattern such as omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid, figure-eight, or anything in between, can be created before and after recording. You can even rotate the microphone’s directivity by 180° after recording. Plus, Dual Output Mode allows recording in stereo with just one LCT 640 TS.

Rediscover your mic locker! Cloudlifter unleashes your microphone’s true potential by adding up to +25dB of ultra-clean gain, loading the mic with the proper impedance, and improving the overall sound quality with an elegant gain stage prior to the preamp, while drastically reducing noise. The Cloudlifter’s patented circuit is ideal for dynamic, tube, wireless, headset, and ribbon mics. Powered by phantom power from your microphone input device, the Cloudlifter does not pass phantom to the mic, making it a great solution for passive ribbons. Cloudlifters are available in one-, two-, and four-channel configurations. Additionally, the pictured the CL-Z adds continuously variable input impedance (150-15kohm), and a variable HPF, giving you total control over the microphone’s tone and character.
