The microphone box

ca. 1999:
On set, I have always struggled with the problem that the sound from my guitar comes out through the PA differently every time. It made me crazy, even though I had placed my mic in front of the loudspeaker exactly the way I had seen every other guitarist do, but the beam-effect was actually the cause of the problem.

At that time I wasn’t aware that every tiny centimetre change to the mic made a huge difference to the production of the sound. After countless sessions in our rehearsal room, one thing became clear: I needed an add-on to the microphones – and ASAP!

I developed a box with these holders built-in. At every gig, I simply place the microphone-box in front of the loudspeaker, which fit perfectly together.

From then on, I have been really pleased with the stable microphone position and the even sound quality. Over the following years, I continually improved the box. I had solved the puzzle of the microphone, but it would still be a long and difficult road before the Deeflexx was born. A detail that then didn’t seem significant would eventually lead to the solving of the ‘beam’ problem in 2008.
