    Dynamic Microphone Specifically Tuned and Designed for the Harmonica


    While the contour the FireBall is designed to fit comfortably within the palm of the hand, there is a full-sized dynamic capsule within to provide big, full-bodied sound. Featuring VLM (Very Low Mass) capsule technology developed by Audix during the early 1990's, the FireBall is very clean and accurate, resistant to feedback, and capable of handling sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB without distortion.

    Even more astonishing is the ability of the FireBall to maintain its high quality sound reproduction even while the artist is cupping the grill ball. While this type of cupping action is necessary for style and effect, it can often cause the microphone to "boom out" or become muddy and distorted. Not so with th FireBall - it will operate as if it's in an open air environment, even under the most demanding conditions

    The FireBall is characterized with a smooth and uniform frequency response of 50 Hz - 16 kHz and and a cardioid polar pattern, allowing it to focus on the particular instrument that is being miked without picking up other instruments or ambient noise on stage.
