The Alien8 Microphone

The Alien8 is a figure 8 dynamic mic designed for low frequency sources that also need to have a focused mid range to fit easily into a mix. It sounds great on kick in or out as well as bass and guitar amps. It's our flagship mic and is known for having a 'finished sound' that needs little or no EQ.

All DrAlienSmith products are creative tools that help capture unique sounds without over complicating the recording process. They are designed and made by studio engineer Al Smith in his workshop in the Perth Hills, WA, Australia.
