Thanks for posting!

Arnaud Jacobs asked for a special microphone. With his stethoscope mike he explores contact sounds. Not only on the body, but he also uses this aevox microphone as hydrophone in lakes, rivers etc. The sound is far more linear and the dynamics are better maintained when compared to most common contact mikes.

In the meantime the stetho microphone lives a life of its own. More people want one, so we can offer them at 357€. Peter Bach Nicolaisen from Denmark commented "I received the microphone today and I've already tried it a little. Really amazing response when used as a contact microphone on some of my primitive instruments such as tibetan bowls. I'm looking very much forward to use it more.".
All reactions and suggestions are most welcome at info@aevox.be

His contrabasflute has 2 custom build Aevox microphones. 1 Tiny is placed near to his lips, one mic is inside the flute, permitting special effects.

MkII sets new levels of performance
The quick worldwide acceptance of Aevox microphones and the enthusiastic reactions from recordists, musicians, film crews, etc, was a strong incentive to develop a new generation of our products. After more than one year of development the new MkII versions of our microphones offer features never seen (and heard) in mobile recording microphones.

Extended frequency response
Aevox MkII microphones have extended non aggressive highs giving you that bit of extra definition and spatial feeling. Our ultra low noise floor is your guarantee for recordings free of any blur. Deep lows have always been our trademark.

Reduced handling noise
The first generation of Aevox microphones were considered to be the best on the market when when low contact noise and high mechanical strength were considered. On the Classic M MkII and IE MkII we took this one step further by adding an extra suspension.

High End cable
A flexible High End OFC cable with excellent electrical characteristics is now used on every microphone. With 3mm thickness but very flexible it's your guarantee for quality and survival on the road. No competitor goes this far. Our minijacks are in robust metal and goldplated versions can be provided as an extra. Aevox is your best choice when looking for a high grade mobile recording microphone!

techtalk: why windshields work (www)
Windshields mostly come in two flavours: foam or a holder with a nylon or metal mesh.
Actually there are more complex designs as well such as those developed by Rycote or DPA.
But how do they work?
Wind builds up a high pressure on the membrane of the microphone. This translates to a plopping or rattling sound and it eventually can damage the microphone.
When we use a windshield the air pressure at the outer side of the shield increases. The wind blows trough the tiny holes. But behind every mesh or fiber of the screen is a zone of low pressure. Once passed the screen, the wind pressure tries to even out and turns toward this zone of low pressure. Turbulence is born, and most of the wind energy is lost in this.


One of the most crucial factors to make this work is to leave enough space for this process. That's why we use the long windshields with the extra air pouch on the Classic M, which now comes as a standard.

with our velcro straps our microphones can be fastened everywhere!

for standard recordings a easy to find spring clamp does the job.
