At booth #6579, Sennheiser will show a new condenser boundary microphone, the e 912. A companion to the e 901 boundary mic for bass drums, the e 912 is designed for picking up speech, vocals and acoustic instruments, and, in particular, grand pianos.
"The e 912 is an ideal solution for a wide range of applications: from musical instruments to theater and opera house stages, from churches to conference centers and lecture halls," says Robb Blumenreder, Sennheiser's MI product manager. The pre-polarized condenser microphone with half-cardioid pickup pattern has a wide frequency response (from 20 to 20k Hz) and a maximum sound pressure level of 136 dB. The e 912's very flat housing makes it virtually inconspicuous, while its robust design copes well with the rigors of being used on a stage floor.
A rubber plate on the underside of the e 912 ensures that vibrations are not transmitted and mounting slots on the underside allows the microphone to be securely fastened on a stage, on a conference table or lectern. The e 912 weighs in at a mere 350 grams (approx. 12 ounces), enabling it to be easily positioned in a variety of applications.
The preamplifier electronics are integrated into the microphone and the gold-plated XLR-3 connector is surrounded by the enclosure in such a way that the connection isn't compromised. The e 912 is available in two colors: cream white and black.
