“We found a supplier and fabricated a six-inch piece of stainless steel that slides right over the gooseneck,” adds Durisko. “This sleeve provides the strength and support needed, allowing it to work. With a bit of the gooseneck revealed at the top, we are able to turn the mic toward the speaker. We painted the stainless and it not only looks great, but with the DPA capsule it sounds flawless.”
Designed to be placed on a table or podium, or attached to the ceiling or even the wall, the Microphone Base is available in two colors — black and white — and comes with either a MicroDot connector, an XLR connector, or unterminated leads for connections to Phoenix blocks. The d:screet™
capsule is mounted on a sleek boom that, for the table top version, has a gooseneck at the top and the bottom, allowing users to position the mic exactly where they want it. The ceiling version consists of one gooseneck. In both versions, the cable can exit to the side of, or beneath the unit.
