BeesNeez Elly Microphone Producer Series

  • $ 719.00


The BeesNeez Elly is a Large Diaphragm Fet Condenser microphone that has a rich and warm rounded tone that will work in many applications but is optimised for vocal applications due to the fixed cardioid pattern. The Elly fet microphone is supplied with an elastic suspension mount.

In the design phase of the Elly, a few deciding factors were addressed - portability, self noise and sibilance. The end result; a phantom powered, transformer balanced fet microphone optimized for the low voltage bias version of the BeesNeez K7 Capsule.

Electrically and acoustically the Elly fet microphone is a superior build quality to many microphones. The head grill is bronze with brass mesh that is then nickel plated with a bright nickel finish. The body tube and base are made from brass giving the Elly a substantial weight and great structural integrity. As with all BeesNeez Producer Series Microphones, the Elly is all made in the BeesNeez factory in Kyogle, NSW Australia including the Capsule, Capsule saddle, Body, base and head grill.

The Elly uses the BeesNeez K7 capsule as is used in the BeesNeez Arabella and Tribute 1. The K7 has a near linear response up to the upper mids and above 2000 Hz there is a slight boost of 2 to 3db which then starts to roll off at 17,000 Hz. The head grill that houses the K7 capsule has been designed as a triple layer unit that not only smoothes annoying highs but also acts as an effective plosive and moisture barrier.

The CineMag 2510 transformer in the Elly fet microphone ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the audio signal whilst giving the mic the warm, non-clinical timbre that is so desired in modern recording.
