Neumann KC 1 Cable Brace

Set of two braces to secure cable connection on gooseneck of Neumann Miniature Clip Mic system

Cable brace for the Neumann Miniature Clip Mic MCM system to additionally secure the connection cable to the gooseneck if required. The cable brace comes with the gooseneck; however, it can also be purchased separately as a set of 2.

The Miniature Clip Mic System MCM is designed for close miking all acoustic instruments without many of the “natural” compromises the industry has experienced, including that in sound, ease of use, and mounting options, Orchestras, theaters, and rentals can soon rely on the full signature sound of every acoustical instrument.

The Neumann KK 14 cardioid capsule redefines the standard for a rich, natural sound in close miking as well as the signal fidelity and precision that electret Systems can deliver. Due to a completely new production process, the KK 14 overcomes former limitations like inconsistencies in sensitivity and tonality. It can take any SPL; users will not have to work against microphone tolerances any longer. Built from titanium, this capsule will last not just for a season, but for decades, lowering the cost of ownership tremendously. You get next-level sound and a great variety of self-adjusting, pro-level mounting options.

An integral part of the Miniature Clip Mic System MCM is an exhaustive palette of microphone mounting clips that allow for simple and reliable microphone positioning on any instrument. They are gentle to even the most sensitive surfaces and make mounting quick and easy. Users can mount the Miniature Clip Mic System MCM in a matter of seconds, with only one hand for most instruments.

In order to interface natively with all relevant wireless transmitters, there are four interchangeable cables with either a
3,5 mm jack, Lemo, 4-pin mini-XLR, or MicroDot connector, eliminating the need for adapters. The microphone also works on a wired connection using the high-end output stage.

The Miniature Clip Mic System MCM redefines the sound for close miking acoustic instruments, reduces efforts for sound check and mounting, and lowers the overall cost and investment. All parts of this modular System are available individually; every part is easily replaceable. It might look small, but it will expand the possibilities that your key accounts can promise. And, of course, it connects to all major wireless solutions on the live market.


Miniature Clip Mic System MCM:

  • Elevates electret technology to Neumann standards: Defines an audible new reference in sound for miniature close miking
  • 153 dB Max SPL – one capsule for both loud and very soft instruments
  • Interfaces with most transmitter bodypacks (3,5 mm jack / MicroDot / Lemo / 4-pin mini XLR)
  • Manual assembly in Germany to achieve superior tonal consistency of microphones
  • No twisted cables thanks to the gooseneck connector that allows for rotation
  • Comprehensive line-up of instrument-specific mounting solutions for reliable mic placement that are gentle to the instrument and easy to use
  • Neumann aesthetics and handling
