Klover Introduced Equalized “Natural” Sound for Parabolic Microphones at 2016 NAB

Klover Products, a maker of parabolic microphones, introduced a custom equalized microphone that provides a natural sound directly out of their parabolic microphone systems.

Klover said the new parabolic mic capsule was built for the company by Countryman Assocites, based on their popular, water-resistant B3 line of microphones.

Klover’s Paul Terpstra said his company also demonstrated a new accessory bracket for the Klover nine-inch parabolic mic. This bracket allows the mounting of two shoe-mount accessories at the base of the parabolic without an accessory bar.

Klover also released the new “TE” version of the Klover MiK 26 — a 26-inch parabolic mic. The front flange of this new version is shaped slightly differently so that it can fit in a Pelican style case or a smaller shipping container.
