Check out our interview with founder Skipper Wise from CES 2015.

Just like a beehive, the King Bee is all about reproduction. Its large-diaphragm condenser design is ideal for applications requiring low noise and high sensitivity-the King Bee excels for vocals, drums, electric guitar, piano, and most acoustic instruments, including complex sources like saxophones, flutes, and strings. Thanks to custom Class A discrete electronics, careful mechanical design, and a precision, gold-sputtered microphone capsule, what you hear at the output is what the King Bee hears at its input.

The King Bee is ideal for large-diaphragm condenser microphone applications (like vocals) and earns its royal title with discrete Class-A electronics, superior sound, and a high-quality audio output transformer. The package includes the Beekeeper shock mount and Honeycomb snap-on pop filter. With its exquisite craftsmanship and engineering savvy from some of the most experienced minds in the recording industry, the King Bee is a microphone that, simply put, rules.

The King Bee has an externally polarized pressure-gradient, large-diaphragm condenser mic element with a center-terminated, 6μ pure gold-sputtered mylar capsule membrane.

Its very low noise rating (>7.0 dB) and high output make it the perfect choice for ultra-high resolution digital recording. Instead of integrated circuits (chips), the King Bee's Class A discrete amplifier circuitry ensures the most accurate and noise-free signal possible, with minimal distortion and coloration. You can position the side-address capsule, enclosed within its unique grille, for very precise placement.
