‘Black Ops’ is a ruggedised version of our popular BM9 ribbon microphone. It is designed to withstand the higher sound pressure volumes found close up in front of guitar amps and other loud instruments (and voices too). The black label and grills distinguish it from the standard BM9.
The transformer has iron-rich laminations to take a higher signal level before saturation, and a lower inductance to compensate for the bass proximity effect. This gives a clear, detailed response when working within a few inches of the sound source.
