The Apex787 delivers natural tone and the stunning realism of classic vintage ribbon microphones, with the advantages of an increased overall output and more consistent frequency response when used with various mixers and microphone preamps.
The integrated active electronics of the Apex787 deliver higher output that a classic ribbon design, rivalling the levels of any side address studio condenser microphone. Unlike a dynamic ribbon mic design, the Apex787s overall tone is less affected by the variable impedance of the input channel or preamp
This innovative design makes the Apex787 the ideal solution for any critical recording where the tone of a ribbon microphone is preferred, but the reliability, output and performance of a condenser microphone is required.
The asymmetrical figure-8 pickup pattern has an extended sweet spot on the rear face of the microphone allowing the recording to accurately reproduce the natural space and ambient reverberation of a good sounding live room.
The microphones chassis is precision-tooled aluminum alloy with a dent resistant stainless-steel wire-mesh windscreen. The included shock-mount virtually eliminates vibration and handling noise, while at the same time safely securing the microphone in any position needed during the recording process.
The Apex787 includes a vintage yoke-style microphone standmount and ships in aluminum carry case.
