Cardioid Solid State Condenser XLR Microphone

The Neat Worker Bee II is a solid-state cardioid condenser microphone with an internally shockmounted, medium-sized 25mm capsule and discrete Class A electronics that can handle high sound pressure levels with a wide frequency and dynamic range. The Neat Worker Bee II is the ideal creation tool for recording, podcasting, and streaming applications. It sounds great on guitar amps, brass, live recordings, drums, and other “big” sounds, but retains a level of detail that brings out the nuances in vocals, spoken voice, and plucked instruments such as acoustic guitar and percussion. Plus, the Neat Worker Bee II’s compact size is perfect for positioning in tight spaces. Let a Neat Worker Bee II loose in your home or studio and you’ll quickly be rewarded with the hardest working mic in the industry!
