Product Description

The Worker Bee creates a living situation in the hive that supports the brood - and this Worker Bee does exactly the same for recording. The internally shock-mounted 25 mm medium diaphragm capsule, combined with custom Class A discrete electronics, can handle high sound pressure levels with a wide frequency and dynamic range.

While the Worker Bee is the perfect complement for guitar amps, brass, live recordings, drums, and other big sounds, it retains a level of detail that brings out the nuances in vocals, plucked instruments like acoustic guitar, percussion, and much more.

  • Medium Diaphragm Capsule
  • Perfect mic for recording guitar amps, brass, live recordings, drums, and others
  • Includes Pop Filter and Shockmount
The Worker Bee package includes the Honeycomb pop filter and Beekeeper custom shockmount. For a condenser mic that can handle just about anything with extreme accuracy, the Worker Bee is ready to serve you.

Neat Microphone Work Bee
Honeycomb Pop Filter
Keep P, B, and other plosive sounds from overloading your Bee mic: the Honeycomb not only protects the bees from blasts of air, but over-enthusiastic vocalists. Simple to use, the Honeycomb snaps around the mic in seconds, and despite the effective protection, is engineered for sonic transparency.

Beekeeper Shockmount
Vibration transmitted to the mic through its stand can create low frequency rumble and artifacts capable of ruining even the best take. Effortless to set up and use, the Beekeeper banishes any predators by isolating the mic from the stand, while locking the mic securely in place with ingenious angle mounts.

Product Review

The Worker Bee is an excellent mic for acoustic and electric guitars. Works well on vocals, but will not give you all the fullness you'd get from a large diaphragm condenser. Little eq is required to get your instruments where you need them. Overall, this is a very nice microphone for the price. It would have been nice to have a case instead of the over the top packaging they include. One thing about the shock mount that bothers me is the lack of ability to turn the mic upside down if needed. The bulkiness of the mic and mount make it difficult to fit into more precarious positions, which means you have to be more creative on placement. These are minor issues compared to the quality sound this microphone produces and at this price, it's a no brainer.

Excellent Microphone That May Be Overlooked By Weird Design

Product Review

At first I ignored Neat, but watched a video with Craig Anderton, the excellent writer who now works for Neat. He turned me around in that video. Then I found an excellent price at AMS. Though it says dent and scratch, it was brand new in the box. Neat is from the founders of Blue Mics. Though their Bee motif is a bit weird and can turn you off, the microphones are excellent and over-built. I used the Worker Bee miking a guitar cabinet with excellent results. The cable is heavy, thick and over the top in quality. The shock mount is excellent and the design is superb. Highly recommended at this incredibly good AMS price.
