Placid Audio Copperphone Mini Microphone
The Placid Audio Copperphone Mini Microphone was originally designed for harmonica players as a hand held alternative to the Copperphone. It does have a similar nostalgic character to the sound because it operates within a limited bandwidth. But only for harmonica players, we don't think so!
The Copperphone Mini uses a higher performance modern element and does not utilize a resonant chamber. The result is a microphone that is more sensitive and sounds more direct than the Copperphone. The Copperphone Mini is constructed from quality rugged materials and is likely to withstand a high degree of shock or other physical impacts. The Copperphone Mini can also withstand extremely high sound pressure levels without damage to the diaphragm.
The Copperphone Mini does not require phantom power as it uses a passive dynamic element. It uses a Switchcraft 3 pin male XLR connector and can be connected to any audio gear with 3 pin female XLR connector via an XLR cable. Accidentally applying phantom power will not harm the microphone or affect its performance.
Because the sound of the Copperphone Mini has a character unlike many other traditional mics, it makes a great addition to any recording enthusiasts arsenal of microphones. It can be used as an all out obvious effect on its own or it can be paired with other traditional microphones for infinite blending possibilities.
The Copperphone Mini can be used live. As with any microphone, feedback can be an issue. Results will vary depending on the application, the overall volume of your band, the quality of the sound system and the experience of the engineer running the sound system. However very careful adjustment and equalization of the Copperphone Mini in the monitors can yield acceptable results.
