Wilsonville, OR (February 24, 2004)–Audix’s latest innovation, the I-5, is a dynamic microphone that can be used for any instrument miking application for stage and studio. With its sleek styling and unique design, the I-5 features a durable cast zinc alloy body, dent resistant grill, and black E-coat finish. Every model is laser etched with its model and serial number.
The I-5 is designed with a cardioid polar pattern, allowing it to focus on the particular instrument that is being miked without picking up other instruments or ambient noise on stage. With a smooth and uniform frequency response of 50 Hz-16 kHz and an ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB, the I-5 can be used for a wide variety of applications and for all genres of music.
Audix VP of sales and marketing Cliff Castle stated, “The I-5 was brought about by demands from our dealers and customers for a general purpose, high performance instrument microphone at a very competitive price. Over the past few years we have produced a wide variety of application specific mics for drums and percussion–the I-5 is a synthesis of everything we have learned along the way. Even though the I-5 is aimed at a very wide audience and will be produced in high volume, it will still maintain the same tight quality specifications and quality control standards that is now a trademark of all Audix products.”
With a suggested retail price of $179, the I-5 will be available for shipment in mid-April, 2004, and will include a heavy-duty mic clip and carrying pouch.
