This high output mic faithfully captures a wide dynamic range with exceptional mid-range clarity. Its supercardioid pickup pattern provides maximum gain before feedback, while an updated body design and pneumatic capsule shockmount minimize handling noise.

Why So Superior?

The Q8x’s superior reproduction stems from the linear frequency response of its neodymium dynamic mic element. The response is flat with a slight lift around 8kHz. This makes fitting vocals in live mixes extremely easy with minimal EQ adjustments. The mic also features a supercardioid pickup pattern with excellent off-axis rejection. This enables the Q8x to pick up all the nuances of any performance with maximum volume and clarity, while reducing feedback and unwanted signals not originating in front of the mic. In addition, a high saturation level audio transformer further rejects hum and noise.

Not Just for Vocals

The Q8x is not just a great live vocal mic. It’s an extremely versatile tool in the studio, perfect for numerous recording applications. As the Q8x is equipped to withstand high sound pressure levels up to 150dB SPL, it allows vocals to sound huge and crystal clear, but can also handle close miking instruments such as piercing snare drums, screaming guitar cabinets and much more.

New and Improved

With a newly-designed rugged die-cast body and hardened steel grille, along with an improved pneumatic capsule shockmount for minimizing handling noise, the Q8x provides reliable performance in even the most demanding environments.
