Bicycle Gear Models

These custom one-of-a-kind models utilize a tea-ball capsule basket held in a spring suspension in a mid-sized reclaimed bike gear. Visually striking, singular and elegant. The mic body is built from heavy copper and brass plumbing components.

Classic cardioid pattern, with excellent off-pattern rejection and plenty of output, making her easy to use live. With the clarity, gain, feedback resistance, and full, natural frequency response to change the game when it comes to live single-mic situations. She has a pleasing high end with no harshness, and a sound that performers, audiences, and engineers all describe as astonishingly natural.
