The CBL 99 is a
high-quality boundary microphone designed to deliver superior
results for a multitude of recording applications. The boundary
layer technique is well-known for recording and offers
non-directional pickup that is frequencyindependent.
Succeeding the proven C 562 BL, the CBL 99 is small,
lightweight and easy to place . no stand is needed. Since the
transducer sits in a metal plate only 5 mm (0.2 in) thick, the
plate doesn’t interfere with or color the sound. Frequency
response is very uniform within its hemisphere and it captures
the “room sound’’ of an instrument very accurately.
The CBL 99 can be permanently attached to the floor or wall of
a studio using the screw holes in the plate or attached
temporarily using the supplied adhesive compound. Its 3-pin
output connector also has a switchable bass-cut filter to
minimize surface-born noise.
Easy to use and sonically versatile, the CBL 99 is a great
addition to the “mic locker’’ of any studio.
