f5

Affordable Dynamic Instrument Microphone

The Fusion Series microphones represent affordable excellence.

The f5 dynamic instrument microphone is an ideal choice for snare, toms, percussion, and acoustic instruments in live and studio applications. A hypercardioid pick-up pattern helps to minimize feedback and isolate the instrument from ambient sound.

The f5’s low impedance and balanced output allow interference-free performance.

Designed, assembled, and tested by Audix in the USA.

“The affordable f5 possesses much the same sonic signature as its slightly more expensive sibling (Audix i5 Professional Instrument Microphone). That’s just what I want from a snare sound, so I didn’t need to EQ a thing here.
