SWAN-NECK MICROPHONE

The swan-neck microphone is a studio quality electret mic mounted on an annealed copper stem. It attaches to the instrument by means of pads of self-adhesive hook-and-loop tape and the stem can then be bent into position to obtain the best sound reproduction.

The swan-neck must be used in conjunction with a Microvox power supply.
