CBM-1 | Microphone for cajon and bass drum

Rumberger CBM-1 | Microphone for Cajon and BassdrumThe CBM-1 Cajon microphone was developed exclusively for the Salzburg Cajon manufacturer „PUR Cajon“. The requirement was to be able to mike a Cajon as easily as possible and reproduce it in a lifelike manner on every PA (acoustic system). It goes without saying that these requirements have been consistently and uncompromisingly implemented through our many years of experience in the development and construction of microphones. In close cooperation with PUR’s Cajon specialists, another special microphone with the best features for good live performance and high road capability was developed.

The integrated active equalizer allowed us to achieve authentic and natural miking of a cajon without having to adjust the equalizer on the mixing console. Our “Plug and Play” principle – simply plug in and get started, is 100 percent true with the CBM-1! In addition, the Cajon microphone has extremely low feedback and is therefore perfect for live miking.

The CBM-1 can be connected to any conventional mixing console with 48V phantom power and extended with microphone cables (XLR cables).

Our Cajon microphone CBM-1 works like a conventional boundary microphone, making it ideal for use in a bass drum. Even with a bass drum (kick) you get an extremely powerful, crisp sound without having to make any further adjustments on the mixer.

For Cajon players and drummers, on stage or in the studio

No matter who uses the CBM-1 or where it is used, the result will be convincing in every application. The live musician is happy when the bass drum from his drums brings the right “kick” to the PA. The sound engineer in the recording studio is thrilled when he can easily mike a Cajon and doesn’t have to set up a complete setup of microphones first, so that the Cajon produces a nice sound in the mix.
Of course in best quality, 100% Made in Germany – like all our products!
