Audix Chosen for Yamaha Marimba Miking System

Audix microphones have been chosen to accompany the new Yamaha Marimba Miking System. Originally designed by Randall May, the system allows the microphones to be positioned within and parallel to the resonator chambers of the marimba, while the microphone slide rail pivots to enhance isolation and quality of sound.

The system promises effortless, instant positioning of the microphones while still allowing them to slide on the rail of the marimba for preferred mic placement and uniform octave levels. For greater adjustment, the microphones can also be independently pivoted to a desired angle.

Randall May of Randall May International decided to use the D2 model microphone from Audix, stating, “It was important to stay with a dynamic mic because of durability. And I felt the D2’s rugged construction, performance and frequency response, combined with its cost effectiveness, fit right into the window of what we were looking for. Audix was a natural choice since we also use the D4 and D6 with our internal drum miking systems, and they are outstanding mics. “

Marching artists currently using the new miking system include Bluecoats, Madison Scouts, Carolina Crown, and The Colts.
