The MM5 provides the same level of precision as our MM4 mic, but with reduced sensitivity. This allows it to be used inside drums, saxophones and other high-level environments. The reduced sensitivity has been achieved by modifying the gain provided by the FET (amplifier) inside the capsule and this has enabled us to achieve a very low noise level.
The drum demonstration video below was recorded using two MM4 mics as overheads and two MM5 mics on the front and back of the bass drum.
