The B3 is essential to any well-stocked pro audio toolkit: it captures the highest quality audio available in a lavalier mic, with field-selectable high-frequency response caps and extremely low handling noise.
Whether you need a tie-clip lavalier for an interview, a hidden hair mic for drama, a water-resistant mic for reality TV, sports, or hurricane reporting, or simply a small mic to hide in a prop flower vase, you'll never run out of applications for Countryman's B3 Lavalier.
And that's exactly why they made the B3 so rugged. The cable is protected from stretching by a rugged aramid core, and the mic's protective caps are extremely resistant to water, sweat, and makeup.
You'd never expect such a mic to be so affordable, making the B3 one of the highest-value audio investments in your kit
EXCEPTIONAL SOUND QUALITY:
The highest-quality audio available in a lavalier mic. Low distortion at SPL up to 140 dB on 48 V Phantom Power. The aramid cable and ultra-thin diaphragm combine to set a new standard for low handling noise. The tiny size and natural sound pickup make the B3 easy to position for ambient noise and feedback rejection.
Looks great when you want to see it, virtually disappears when you don't. The B3 is easily hidden on the body or on set, with five colors to match clothing, hair, and skin tones. Use a felt tip marker to color the white caps for near-perfect concealability. Never suffer the hassle and degraded sound quality of under-clothing miking again.
