BeesNeez Producer Series Lily Ribbon Microphone

BeesNeez Microphones Producer Series Lily

BeesNeez Microphones is proud to introduce officially at the Musikmesse 2011, the first instalment in our range of ribbon microphones; the Lily.

Nearly all ribbon microphones manufactured today have adopted the small body and ribbon concept. Our Lily is different, we have adopted the larger body and larger ribbon styling and we feel that this styling and build have greatly added to the sonic and physical beauty of the Lily, so much so that we could not be happier with the end result.

Our internal ribbon element is the source of the lily’s beauty. We have settled on a very large ribbon with low self resonance (5.1mm wide and 40mm long) with no dampening and a 60 degree crimping style. The frequencies captured by the lily range from below 30hz through to 20k+ and are reproduced with a smooth elegance that is very forgiving with a unique tone that flatters any source.

You will notice when you see the Lily for the first time that it is truly unique, there is no plating above the base, just 3 different shades of metal that finished to a glistening lustre. This is not just for beauty’s sake. Ribbon microphones rely on a strong magnetic vortex in which the ribbon vibrates to create the small amount of electricity that is then amplified by the transformer. If another ferromagnetic surface ie; a nickel or chrome plate is introduced within the near vicinity of this magnetic field, it can and will create a polar disturbance that will affect the sonic reproduction of the microphone.

Our many hours of research and development will bring to you many years of amazing sounds.

The BeesNeez Lily ships with suspension mount and waterproof case.

The BeesNeez Lily is priced at 1299.

Hi All, thanks for the feedback thus far.

In the factory today we decided to record a few samples. The samples are raw and include Matt Gulliford (BeesNeez Microphones Manufacturing Manager), Millicent Ivaschenko (my young apprentice) and me.

These were all one take raw, signal chain is mic (BeesNeez Lily) - pre (fairlight sx-20 built in). No eq, comp or editing.

The sax is me and mine, it is a new t992 bronze Yanagisawa and was cold with no warm up (unfortunately with Messe next week, we are very short for time).

I hope you can hear in these clips, the complexity of the tone in the Lily and the forgiving nature of the response.

Let me know what you think.

cheers

Ben Sneesby

Thanks. we have paid alot of attention to the overall build of the mic giving it the desired look and sound. Our non ferromagnetic surround also plays a big part.

I wish I could be there - I'll just have to hang out here waiting for my Jade to arrive and dreaming that I'm in Frankfurt...

Hi there, the transformer is the cinemag 9888, this is Tom's RCA 44 replacment. It is a great sounding transformer and has it's own mu can to help keep things whisper quiet.

Oh, cool! Thanks for that.

I'd love a pair for overheads and probably just about anything, actually.

I think I just plain want some :D

How does the output compare to other ribbons on the Market? Does it need a lot of gain?

Hi Jeremy, output is good but all ribbons can be a little low. We will have available in about 3 weeks, a 20db phantom powered buffer called the BeesNeez Angus (designed to BEEF up you ribbon mic) so if there isn't enough gain, this will float your boat.

cheers

Hi everyone, just introducing myself to those who don't know me. I am the co-owner of Beesneez Microphones and lucky enough to be married to Ben. My role is that of Director of Operations. Ben is extremely busy at the moment, so i am hoping that i can help to answer questions that you might have, when Ben is not able to. I am also going to be at Musik Messe, so if you are around, i am happy to talk.

Now lets get back to the fun stuff and talk microphones.

Absolutely! Driving over there tomorrow (from London... Not OZ!) Will be great to see another aussie, and to check out your craft.
