CXM5 Saxophone Microphone System

About the CXM5 Sax Mic System

The CXM5 Saxophone Microphone is a clip-on sax mic specially designed to deal with the unique challenges of amplifying the saxophone. Its linear sound condenser capsule is suitable for high sound pressure levels, while still transmitting a crystal clear signal. The mic's soft cardioid polar pattern means that the musician can aim the microphone very close to the bell without losing brilliance.

We designed the CXM5 Saxophone Microphone in a way to ensure that its transmission is free of any mechanical key noises by combining a flexible microphone head suspension, a gel embedded capsule mount, and a cushioned clamp. The specially designed goose neck retains 100% solid positioning.

The supplied CXM5 Preamp powers the microphone and features high grade pre-amplification with ultra low-noise circuitry, an active balanced output, and minimum power consumption and a convenient belt-clip. The preamp works on either phantom power or with a 9-volt battery.
