WHAT IS IT?:
The Bock 5-ZERO-7 is a new approach in high end microphone design for it combines new and old: a brand new unique and patent pending elliptical capsule married to a vintage inspired mic amplifier and power supply. Designed to be the ultimate in studio vocal microphones, the 5-ZERO-7 compares favorably to the best vocal microphones, past and present.
WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT?
Bock/Cardas elliptical capsule design strives to resolve the chronic
in-band resonance issues of
both large and small
microphones. Round capsules have a relatively low frequency in
band resonance, typically
around 1K. Small diaphragm mics usually have a much higher in band
resonance, typically about 15K or higher. The elliptical capsule
offers the best
both, avoiding the constant distance "edge to center" of
round capsules, reducing in band resonances dramatically and expanding
application possibilities. The ZERO capsule also has many conventional
as the time tested 6 micron gold sputtered diaphragm used in the
BOCK 251 and edge termination design. The capsule is hand built
HOW DO I USE IT?
microphone itself is a large body type, to give singers and artists
a familiar feel in the studio to
vintage mics they
know and love.
The fixed cardioid nature of the microphone guarantees it will
always be in its most popular setting without switches and
long term reliability. The microphone sounds very big, utilizing
a carefully crafted proximity effect for that extra deep intimacy
and engineers alike. This sound is expected to be especially
popular on male vocalists but will be expected to outperform
mics on females
as well. There will be a wide variety of color available with
distance, so this will increase it’s flexibility. You
will find that the 5-ZERO-7 brings something new to voices,
past or present, at any price.
