The Shure Microflex Overhead Microphone MX202W/C White, Cardioid mini-condenser microphone; includes cable, in-line preamplifier, and stand adapter. Compact and flexible overhead microphone captures sound from speakers, choirs, and stages unobtrusively from above.
The Shure Microflex Overhead Microphone, MX202W/C (Cardioid), is part of the highly flexible Microflex range. It's hard to believe that such small, unobtrusive microphones can produce such great sound, but it's true. Available in black or white finishes, and with in line or plate mount preamps, the Microflex Overhead condenser microphones capture Shure quality sound in a compact, adjustable package. Each model features one of the three interchangeable condenser microphone cartridges (a cardioid cartridge is included with this MX202W/C model) attached to a flexible, four inch gooseneck with a 30 foot cable. The preamp options available offer easy installation in ceilings or microphone stands, and when combined with the high sensitivity cartridge's wide frequency response, these microphones provide accurate sound reproduction with a minimum of RF interference or electromagnetic hum. The Microflex Overheads feature interchangeable cardioid, supercardioid and omnidirectional condenser cartridges that fit every model in the Microflex product line for enhanced convenience and consistent sound. Easily hung from ceilings, Microflex Overhead Microphones capture sound from speakers, choirs, stages, and more conveniently and unobtrusively from above.
