  • A spherically-mounted high-intensity small diaphragm electret condenser capsule
  • All discrete class A transformer-less electronics
  • Active balanced outputs
  • Robust vintage-style solid brass hardware for versatile and stable positioning
  • Precision Manfrotto ball and socket mechanism for versatile positioning
  • Phantom powered electronics

According to the company, the SE-BB1 is an open-sounding microphone and effective as a drum overhead, hi-hat or percussion mic, or on anything requiring extreme transient detail at high SPL.

The SE-BB1 bova ball carries a manufacturer's suggested list price of CDN $579. (US $469.) and is available directly from the manufacturer.
