Blue en•CORE 300 Vocal Mic
Now shipping is Blue Microphones’ en•CORE 300, its flagship live vocal mic. The unique open architecture design of this studio-grade condenser maximizes air volume in the capsule chamber for consistent cardioid polar response, regardless of how the mic is gripped, and reduces in-chamber resonances for a more natural sound. The Blue logo glows to indicate the presence of phantom power. Retail is $199.

DAS Aero 8A Compact Line Array
The DAS Aero 8A ultracompact (9.6x20.7x14-inch) line array features a neodymium 8-inch woofer and 2-inch-voicecoil HF compression driver mounted on a new waveguide horn assembly and driven by Class-D bi-amplification (250 + 100 watts) and onboard DSP. The 8A can be used solo; with the optional LX-212A 2x12 powered sub; or in multiple unit arrays. Rigging on the trapezoidal birch-ply enclosure can create splay angles from 0 to 10 degrees for creating various column curvatures.

Audix CabGrabber-XL
Audix unveils an extended version of its CabGrabber™, a clip-on mic mount for guitar/bass amps and cabinets. Designed for both straight-front and slanted speakers from 14 to 20 inches deep, CabGrabber-XL is made of durable aluminum tubing and accepts any standard mic clip, securely holding mics weighing up to 16 ounces. The unit rotates 180 degrees and locks into position, so engineers can place a mic exactly where they desire. Retail is $89.
