Manufacturer's Description from Earthworks

The FlexWand™ is a combination of a 30kHz High Definition Microphone™ and a low profile microphone stand and boom as a single unit. It allows the microphone head to be positioned as high as 7 feet and as low as 1.5 feet from the floor or anywhere in between. There are no visible wires or cables above floor level. Visually it is low profile, smooth, sleek and clean. The FlexWand™ is the ideal solution for applications where the utmost in sound quality and a low profile is required. Now you don’t have to find a mic, attach the mic clip to the stand and then dress the cable around the stand. Just pick up the FlexWand™, position it and plug the mic cable into the base.

Frequency Response: 30Hz to 30kHz ±2dB at 6 inches
Polar Patern: Cardioid
Sensitivity: 10mV/Pa (-40dBV/Pa)
Max Acoustic Input: 145dB SPL

About Manufacturer

Earthworks was formed by David Blackmer, the inventor of dbx, to realize his vision of upgrading the entire audio chain to a new standard of sonic realism. David's goal of creating high definition tools with which to capture the sound and experience of "being there" is based upon a strong evidence that there is more to human hearing than the range of frequencies which can be heard as tones. We are convinced that audio equipment with extended frequency response and faster, cleaner time domain performance will yield more life-like results. Traditional audio methadology appears to be based on working around the limitations, imperfections, and personality quirks of the equipment, and calling the ones you like "assets". WE believe that any part of the audio chain can be improved to the point where the standard is so high that any product meeting it will be indistinguishable from any other product meeting the same standard, and that an audio system built to such standard can achieve sonic reality. This standard, for electronic equipment, is met by our Zero Distortion Technology. We support the concept of recording acoustic events accurately enough to capture the sound as it happened in the room. This approah allows you to make sonic coloration and texture choices later, when you can consider them carefully and still have recourse. Life-like accuracy is the best starting point for whatever unique coloration you may wish to add.

Specifications

  • Cardioid polar pattern
  • Frequency response of 30Hz to 30kHz
  • Near perfect polar response and the ability to reject sounds from the rear of the microphone, making it a perfect solution for choirs and vocal groups
  • For applications requiring a tighter pickup pattern with greater off-axis rejection
  • Large flex section near the center of the stand that couples the stand and the wand
  • Mini-gooseneck between the end of the wand and the microphone head
  • The lower section of the stand is 3/4” in diameter and the 24-inch wand is 5/16” in diameter with a 4.5” mini-gooseneck connected at the end which connects to the High Definition Microphone™ head
  • The combination of a mid-flex section and the mini flex on the wand provide an infinite combination of placement options between 1.5 feet and 7 feet
  • Substantial improvement in gain before feedback
  • The near-perfect polar response of the FlexWand™ allows the use of fewer microphones on choir, with better sound quality, no spotlighting and incredible rejection of sounds from the rear of the microphone
  • Ideal where bands or orchestras are placed in front of a choir, as the FlexWand™ will reject much of the sound of the band or orchestra
  • The sturdy 12-pound base will not allow the FlexWand™ to be accidentally knocked over
