Earthworks FW430TPB Cardioid FlexWand Microphone

The Earthworks FW430TPB Cardioid FlexWand Microphone is a FlexWand Series 4’ integrated microphone offers floor stand solution for instrument miking applications. A unique combination of microphone, microphone boom and stand with tripod base, the FW430TPB provides near perfect polar response and the ability to reject sounds from the rear of the mic, making it a perfect solution for choirs and vocal groups.

The Earthworks FW430TPB Cardioid FlexWand Microphone is a combination of a high definition microphone and a low profile microphone stand with tripod base and a boom in a single unit. It allows the microphone head to be positioned as high as 4.7 feet and as low as 10 inches from the floor or any-where in between.

Performance

When you do not want to compromise appearance for sound quality, the Earthworks FW430TPB FlexWand™ provides the best of both worlds. Combining a 30kHz cardioid microphone, low profile microphone stand and boom as a single freestanding unit, the Earthworks FW430TPB delivers a low profile and flexible miking solution for instrument and vocal applications.

Its near-perfect cardioid polar pattern is consistent across all frequencies, which simplifies microphone placement and and ensures more gain before feedback. With 32dB of rear rejection, it is ideal for live performances where there may be bleed from surrounding instruments.

Additionally, the Earthworks FW430TPB FlexWand’s wide coverage area allows for the use of fewer Earthworks microphones with better coverage and sound quality.

With a low noise floor and extended frequency response, the Earthworks FW430TPB is ideal for a wide variety of instruments, both in the studio and live onstage.

Beyond its improved audio performance and coverage, the Earthworks FW430TPB FlexWand™ is designed with functionality in mind. The microphone head can be positioned as high as 4’ 7” feet and as low as 10 inches from the floor or anywhere in between, allowing a nearly unlimited number of microphone positioning options.

Additionally, there are no visible wires or cables above floor level. Instead, the microphone cable plugs into the base of the microphone, making it incredibly low profile and clean.

Construction

Standing 4’ 7” tall (m) and measuring just .75 inches (19mm) at its widest point, the Earthworks FW430TPB FlexWand™ provides both height and a very low profile appearance, virtually disappearing from sightlines in the audience or on camera.

The Earthworks FW430TPB incorporates a large flex section near the center of the stand that couples the stand and the wand, allowing you to adjust the microphone from its tallest height at 4’ 7” (1.4m) to 10” (0.25m) above the ground and anywhere in between. The mini-gooseneck between the end of the wand and the microphone head lets you precisely and quickly position the microphone for optimal coverage.

The sturdy cast iron base provides enough weight so that there is no concern of the Earthworks FW430TPB FlexWand™ falling over if it is bumped into. Rather, the microphone easily stabilizes itself.

Optional 2 and 3 foot extensions available separately for added height.
