Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Miniature Lavalier Microphone

Only one tenth of an inch in diameter, the B6 is the smallest lavalier in the world and outperforms microphones many times its size. The changeable protective caps provide moisture resistance and colour options and let you shape the frequency response to suit different applications or to match other microphones. With exceptionally low handling noise and rugged construction, the B6 is the ideal choice for theatre, broadcast, churches, and general lavalier applications.

  • Nearly invisible. With a diameter of only 0.1” (2.5 mm) — the size of a No. 2 pencil lead — the mic capsule virtually disappears when worn.
  • Rugged cable. Aramid strength members and engineered alloys ensure that our cables provide extreme tensile and flex strength.
  • True colours. Our colours are precision-matched to theatre make-up shades to blend with a wide range of skin tones and clothing.
  • Water resistance. Our mics are water-sealed so you can use them in the hair or against the skin under hot theatre lights without "sweat-outs".

Included Accessories

  • Carrying case
  • Black and white cable clips
  • Windscreen
  • Protective caps (+0, +4, and +8 dB)

Which sensitivity should I choose?

Making a microphone more sensitive to catch soft sounds means it will overload sooner for loud sounds. Because sound pressure levels vary between individuals and applications, we provide three sensitivities with three overload or clipping characteristics.

  • The most sensitive (W4, grey band) is for general speaking, such as presentations or sermons, where the mic is positioned on the chest or lapel
  • The middle sensitivity (W5, red band) is ideal for use as a head mic in theater
  • The least sensitive mic (W6, blue band) with the highest overload sound level is a good choice for instrument applications, opera, or where the microphone will be positioned very near the mouth.

Which cap should I use?

The B6 Lavalier should always be used with a protective cap in place to keep sweat, make-up, and other foreign material out of the microphone. The three omni caps each have a different high-frequency response characteristic that controls the amount of “crispness” or “sibilance” (response at 15 kHz). To identify caps, compare size to the drawings. The omni ships with the +4 dB protective cap fitted to the mic. This will boost the perceived amount of presence in your sound, while leaving the lower frequencies unchanged. If you experience problems with high-frequency feedback, you should switch to the 0 dB cap.
