Common name: BeesNeez Judas
Production Status: In production
The Judas is a bidirectional ribbon microphone. It has a clear and flat frequency response that makes the mix phase a dream by remaining punchy and defined in the mix with minimum post processing. The Judas started its life as a straight ribbon microphone. However, over time, BeesNeez found the need to create an exceptional phantom-powered circuit for the Judas. BeesNeez choose to do this two reasons. Firstly, residual phantom power from preamplifiers, even after the switch was turned off, was still present, thus occasionally blowing out the ribbon element. which would then need to be replaced. The use of a phantom-powered circuit removes any chance of ribbon damage. The second reason for BeesNeez exceptional push-pull phantom circuit is that many customers wanted condenser-like output with no noise. That circuit does exactly this. The element in the Judas is cut from a tape roll of pure aluminium. Is is then crimped and fixed it to BeesNeez neodymium magnet assembly. The microphone includes a shock mount.
