The new e 912 boundary microphone
At prolight+sound, audio specialist Sennheiser is unveiling its new boundary microphone in the "evolution" series: the e 912. A companion to the e 901, a boundary microphone specially developed for bass drums, the e 912 has been designed for picking up speech, vocals and acoustic instruments, especially pianos and concert grands.
"The e 912 is the ideal solution for a wide range of applications: from musical instruments to theater or opera house stages, from conferences to churches or lecterns," says Stephan Scherthan, Sennheiser´s product manager for wired microphones. The prepolarized condenser microphone with an integrated preamplifier has a half-cardioid pick-up pattern. Its wide frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hertz guarantees a detailed sound image, while the high maximum sound pressure level of 136 dB ensures distortion-free sound even from loud sources.
The flat e 912 is extremely robust and can easily cope with rough treatment. A further feature is that the housing encloses the gold-plated XLR-3 connector in such a way that the connector for the microphone cable is also protected. A rubber plate on the underside of the microphone prevents vibrations from being transmitted. Mounting slots underneath allow the e 912 to be installed securely on a stage, a conference table or a lectern. The microphone weighs in at an impressive 550 g, which means that it can be firmly positioned even if it is not secured to the ground, for example when miking instruments. The e 912 is available in two colors, off-white and black, that help it to blend inconspicuously into the installation environment.
