The Crown® Sound Grabber II utilizes the Pressure Zone Microphone® technology in which sound waves reinforce themselves in the area nearest a flat surface.
Because of this new technology, Sound Grabber II offers you the opportunity for vast improvement in the quality of your recordings. The Sound Grabber II will pick up sounds at distances you never thought possible and it will pick them up with a clarity that other microphones, because of the limitations of their construction, simply cannot match. The Sound Grabber II does not need to follow the action, since it has a wide-angle pickup pattern. So long as the mic "sees" the sound, in whatever direction or angle, it will pick it up clearly; it does not need to be between you and the other person. Speakers or vocalists can move freely around the Sound Grabber II without their tone quality changing.
Did You Know...... that while boundary mics are widely utilized in conference rooms and training applications many Audio Engineers use them as drum recording mics. It's true! Musicians and Audio Engineers can benefit from a pair of boundary mics by placing them on the floor on both sides of a kick drum, on the walls or even inside the kick drum. Have fun experimenting to find your killer drum sound.
