OVERVIEW

A professional high-performance mic specifically designed for harmonica and beatbox vocalizing.

The FireBall-V mic from Audix is well-suited for both chromatic and diatonic harmonicas. The FireBall-V is a dynamic microphone with sleek styling and a unique design. It features a dent-resistant ball grill with a deep red internal pop filter and is contoured to fit comfortably within the palm of the hand. A full-sized dynamic capsule featuring VLM (Very Lo Mass) technology provides big, full-bodied sound that is very clean and accurate. The FireBall is resistant to feedback and is capable of handling sound pressure levels in excess of 140dB without distortion. Made to be cupped, it will operate as if in an open-air environment even under the most demanding conditions. A smooth and uniform frequency response of 50Hz-16kHz and a cardioid polar pattern allow it to focus on the particular instrument being miked without picking up other instruments or ambient noise.

CNC machined out of a solid bar of aircraft-grade aluminum, it then goes through an elaborate 3-stage anodizing process for a distinctive look. Each FireBall is attractively laser etched with its name and serial number. Includes a heavy-duty mic clip and carrying pouch.

FEATURES
  • Dynamic moving coil transducer
  • VLM (very low mass) Type B capsule
  • Cardioid pickup pattern
  • Volume control
  • Aluminum housing
  • Anodized finish
  • 5 oz

A pleasant surprize

By danthebluesman

from Undisclosed

Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

Having owned several harp mics, I was looking for something different than the usual green bullet or retro style harp mics. The fireball is different in regards to tone and quality. It gives nice high frequencies and solid mid frequency tones. It provides crisp, clean sounds with most amp setups, including right through sound board. It takes little eq adjustments to bring out bright punchy leads. Volume control is a plus and it works well with a good preamp and compressor. It is easy to produce hand wha wha's with and just plain feels good in your hand. It feels lite in your hands not bulky like the bullets do. The more I use it the more I like it. You will too. Give it a try. Happy Harping.

Audix Fireball V microphone

By Mark Howard

from Oregon

Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

Feedback has always been a nagging problem while playing blues harp with bands in public venues such as bars, restaurants, festivals. I had to keep my amp volume low to avoid the feedback. Someone recommended the Audix Fireball V and I bought one. I immediately found I could turn the volume on my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp a few notches higher without getting that annoying, screechy feedback. With my other mics -- Hohner's Astatic JT-30 clone, and Shure's Green Bullet -- feedback forced me to keep my amp volume down to a point where I'd be blown off stage by bigger guitar amps. The Audix mic also is lightweight, and cups well. My bullet mics have been retired to the bottom of my gear case.

A good little harp mic.

By Tim from Cold Train

from Union, CT

Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

I have been a front man / harp player in rock bands for 25 years. My sound was a Green Bullet and a tube combo amp. I bought this mic because it claimed to have low feedback, easy to control the volume knob, looked comfortable and it was priced right. I've been looking for something like this for quite some time. I have played out with this mic for 4 months now with very good results. Two thumbs up from my sound man. How long it lasts? I will soon find out.

In service for over a year now

Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

I have used this mic for over a year and have come to really love it. Sturdy construction well made comfortable to hold and cup with a harp.Havn't had any issues with it so far. I have been in another rock , blues, country band for almost a year now. Recording and gigging with this mic has been a success. I was using a green bullet for blues thru a tube amp with good results but some thing was missing. I discovered I can still get that fat blues tone and tube break up all blues players lust for with this mic ran thru my vintage tube amp plus I have this clarity I never had before with less feed back. I will admit the green bullet sounded better thru a Hohner HooDoo box amp. But this amp I'm using now loves the FireBall. Looks like the bullet just got bumped back to 2nd place.Give this mic a chance I done't think you'll be sorry!

Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

Since it is a low impedance XLR device, it can be plugged directly into a PA amplifier. Often handy. I use a tranfsformer adapter to plug in to a guitar amplifier.

    Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

    nice, compact mic. Fits in hand, cups easily. Can cup it tight to fatten it up, or relax your grip to get a cleaner sound. A bit louder than my bullet mic. Does require a HI-Z adapter to go into a guitar amp, add this to your shopping list.

      Comments about Audix Fireball-V Harmonica Microphone:

      I play mostly jazz chromatic, plus some diatonic blues, country and bluegrass. I like a clean sound, not much distortion, so the Fireball-V is perfect for my uses. It's sound is similar to the Sure SM58 I've used for years, but is much lighter and has a volume control. Love it.
