With a smart design and the versatility to give top-tier performance on a wide array of instruments, the OD5 is a no-brainer! With the OD5, Austrian Audio introduces an active-dynamic microphone optimized for use on instruments. Handmade in Vienna and subject to the strictest quality assurance processes, the OD5 instrument microphone once again comes with some special features in the usual Austrian Audio manner.
Austrian Audio OD5 Active Dynamic Instrument Mic Features
Active Dynamic Capsule: ensures that even long cable runs have no negative effect on the signal.
Innovative Swivel Joint: allows 220° rotation of the microphone basket
Rugged Die-Cast Body: ideal for the most challenging live environments
Directional Characteristic: High Precision Cardioid
Switchable High Pass Filter: 80 Hz (2nd order), 120 Hz (2nd order)

Most noticeable is the “Swivel Joint” mechanism. To simplify the positioning of the instrument microphone, Austrian Audio’s engineers have developed a suspension system for the microphone basket that allows a 220° rotation of the field. This allows the microphone to be precisely aligned to the sound source or according to personal sound preferences.
A feature already known from the OD505 vocal microphone is the active-dynamic circuit. This ensures that even long cable runs have no negative effect on the signal. In addition, the active-dynamic design allows the integration of a proper high-pass filter.
As a very versatile instrument microphone, the OD5 will find many uses. Perfectly suited for use on various drums; a custom mount is available as an optional accessory; it’s also superb on guitar amplifiers, as well as in front of wind instruments.
