The GN 155 Choir is comprised of a 62" gooseneck module mounted onto a 15-lb shock-isolated, telescoping clutch stand that is height-adjustable from 6' to 9'. All five AKG Discreet series microphone capsules are compatible for mounting onto the GN 155 Choir to allow customization to the application. At the capsule mounting point is a status LED that illuminates when phantom power is applied to the microphone. The GN 155 Choir's 33' cable terminates in a 3-pin XLR-type connector. Within the XLR connector are two jumpers that may be removed to switch off the gooseneck's LED and/or engage a 6dB/octave @ 200Hz hi-pass filter. The finish is inconspicuous matte grey to blend in visually in any situation.
Low-profile hanging microphones have been used for years to mic choirs and large ensembles for house of worship and theater applications. In many installations, a solution was needed that allowed quick, easy changes of microphone positions and pickup pattern customization flexibility. The GN 155 Choir does that simply and elegantly.
Available microphone capsules that can be used with the GN 155 Choir include the CK 31 cardioid capsule, the CK 32 omnidirectional capsule, the CK 33 hypercardioid capsule, the CK 80 speech-optimized hypercardioid capsule and the CK 47 hypercardioid short-shotgun capsule. The distance-pickup superiority of the CK 47 and the CK 80 will make them the first choices for use with the GN 155 Choir in most applications.
