Axis

Professional audio engineers know having the right mic allows them to fully capture the complete essence of an artist’s performance. This is why world-class studios offer numerous microphone models – no matter what the engineer’s requirements are, the right mic is quickly at hand.

With advancements in recording technology providing the ability for many to make recordings in their own studio spaces, engineers are often faced with needing a single microphone that aptly and equally performs numerous tracking tasks across various music genres. Using a condenser microphone is the right step in this direction because of their ability to realize fine details over a larger range of frequencies without imparting noticeable color. Further, the more of an audio spectrum a microphone records, the more information there is to work with in the mix.

The Axis Condenser studio microphone offers this highly advantageous circuit design…and more. With a large surface gold-sputtered 34 mm cardioid polar pattern diaphragm, the Axis is equally brilliant on vocals, guitars, percussion, or any audio source where recording high clarity and detail is essential.
Discrete Class-A FET electronics ensures low noise operation.

The Axis is also ruggedly constructed ensuring years of worry-free studio use, and ships with a professional shock mount, a pop filter, a Scale Technologies 5-meter/16-foot length high-grade hand soldered 4-core twining XLR cable, a zip pouch, and a reinforced hard shell foam-lined carrying case. Now you can benefit from having an instant go-to high-quality versatile condenser microphone that delivers the platinum level professional features found on brands requiring a large investment.

At Fluid Audio, world-class quality and professional results no longer cost a premium.
