Audix in Wilsonville, Ore., is introducing Cabi5 ($190 MSRP) and Cabf5 ($150 MSRP) kits. Each pack contains either an i5 or f5 instrument microphone, mic clip and the CabGrabber mic mounting system for miking a guitar amp in live or recording applications. Audix's dynamic cardioid instrument microphones are now bundled with the company's CabGrabber microphone mounting system.

The Audix i5 dynamic cardioid mic can handle up to 144 dB SPL, with a stated frequency response of 50 to 16k Hz. With tailored frequency and polar response patterns and the ability to perform in high volume applications, the i5 is a natural choice for guitar amp use.

The f5 dynamic hypercardioid mic offers tight pattern control and performance up to 136 dB, with a stated frequency response of 55 to 15k Hz.

Both microphones are constructed of a precision cast zinc alloy body, steel mesh grill and black finish.

CabGrabber is a spring-loaded mic support that grips cabinets from the side or top with soft rubber pads. It is designed to mount in seconds, with no tools required, and quick and easy repositioning. A curved arm and locking choke assure accurate and repeatable mic placement. Final adjustment is made with the mic clip's angle.

The optional "Boom CG" allows for even more placement flexibility. Integrated cable clips keep everything neat and secure.

The packaged CabGrabber can accommodate guitar cabinets from 8 to 14 inches deep and can mount to recessed, flush or slanted designs. The soft rubber pads protect cabinet finishes. The optional CabGrabberXL accommodates larger cabinets measuring 14 to 20 inches deep, including bass amps.

Both kits are available through authorized Audix retailers. For more information, visit
