The Apex 415 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone that was manufacture in China if I am not mistaken. It has a switch on the it that can access the pickup patterns ( cardioid, omnidirectional and figure of 8) also a high pass switch to roll off the low frequencies. The microphone seemed to be pretty well built and made of a heavy material. We used this microphone for a few applications back in 2006 or so, but the microphone came out years before that. It is a nice looking microphone and will spice up your set up when people see this microphone because of its shiny appeal. Never seen it used in a live situation though, only in studio recordings which is where it excels at .


For the price, you get a good quality microphone and you couldn’t expect much more out of it. All of the recordings with the Apex 415 seemed to be full of life and warm. I have heard a lot of rumors regarding the life span of these microphones not being very long. Ours was fine, but others have told me that these microphones and start to go out on your after the first year you purchase it which is more of a reason to buy a warranty on it. But I didn’t feel the need for a warrant on a microphone that was this inexpensive. Plus I never had a issue with it while I was using it. I was happy with this microphone while I was using it, if I could make the choice all over again I would choose the same mic. I have tried a few other Apex microphones before and during the same time as this one. But the 415 could be my favorite one in this price range by far. This microphone was a must try back in 2006, and I still suggest trying it out now.
