We will now build on demand modified Zoom H2n and a Brahma 1st order microphone on stem, terminated with a 5-pin XLR male connector. The Brahma wand can be used independently, either with four PIP sources, or a purpose built four channel balanced output module.
The Zoom H2n, modified with an XLR female connector is the default method for using this microphone.
The microphone is calibrated independently. If a modified Zoom H2n is purchased along with the mic, there will be a second set of calibration filters to match the Zoom.
Brahma wand – 500 USD
Modified Zoom H2n – 500 USD
(Prices include calibration)
Four channel XLR phantom module – XLR 5 pin female one end, 1.5 meters of four channel balanced cable, terminating in four XLR male connectors – 250 USD. Longer cables will be on a pro rata basis.
*a freestanding microphone with 14 mm capsules, with a DIN 12 M connector. This microphone needs to be coupled with a high quality four channel digital recorder.
*Brahma Ambisonic Studio Microphone using 25 mm capsules and low noise electronics. Uses DIN 12 M connector. This microphone needs to be coupled to a high quality four channel digital recorder.
Brahma-8, the second order, eight capsule microphone, with calibration for both AmbiX and SPS-8 formats. We are also working on a second order all digital microphone. It is still at an experimental stage,
We have started production of 25 mm studio microphones with high quality capsules and low noise front-end electronics.
The connector (DIN 12 M) and cables are common with the Free Standing Brahma microphone. We will provide a 1.5 mm splitter cable with the microphone, but other lengths and extensions are made to order. We will also include the shockmount pictured above, with sorbothane isolation.
Like all Brahma Microphones, these are made to order. They will be shipped within two weeks after we receive payment.
Brahma-in-Zoom is the most convenient and most popular microphone we produce. It is an ideal introduction to Ambisonic recording methods: it requires no cabling or complicated setting of levels. It is a genuine ‘one button’ recorder and the two AA cells last really long.
This is the newest iteration of free-standing Brahma microphones using 14 mm capsules that I started making about ten years ago.
The new version has completely new electronics which provide dynamics limited only by the capsules. The microphone looks more conventional; it is also very much more convenient, with a single industry-standard connector.
Higher order ambisonics till now has been based on synthesis and manipulation. There have been very few live recordings and very few microphones which can record in second order. So there is a lot of excitement for the arrival of a compact 2nd order microphone which can be directly plugged into an eight channel recorder.
Outputs are to two 12pin DIN connectors, one carrying channels 1-4 and the other carrying channels 5-8. We provide very flexible Mogami cables to connect these to the recorder.
Cables and other accessories can be made to order, such as this four channel balanced audio cable using high quality very flexible Mogami bulk cable with DIN 12 M on one side and DIN 12 F on the other. Made to any length.

Terminations : DIN 12 F one side (25 USD), DIN 12 M the other side (25 USD)
Or 4 XLR M (35 USD)
Cable per meter (20 USD).
We provide one 1.5 meter cable, DIN 12 F to four XLR M gratis with each Free Standing Brahma. But if you would like this splitter cable to be, let us say, five meters long, you have to add 3.5 meters x 20 USD = 70 USD to your cost. You can instead buy a five meter extension cable (DIN 12 F to DIN 12 M) and use it between the microphone and the splitter cable. That will cost you 160 USD. We can provide any length on this basis. And you do not have to buy a Brahma microphone to buy the cable. To use with the Sennheiser Ambeo for instance.
Shipping will be extra. We can send by international couriers like UPS or DHL, or lower cost India Post service. We will charge on the basis of estimates we receive at that time.
We are now able to provide Mogami 8-channel cable, a single cable option for Brahma-8 buyers. It will have 8 two DIN 12 F connectors one end, and 8 XLR M connectors the other end. The cable will cost 40 dollars per meter. plus termination costs. The difference will not be cost but convenience.
Composite shockmount, supporting a Brahma microphone and a 360 degree camera.
The top ring holds the camera, with standard 1/4″ screw. The microphone is suspended in the lower ring. which plugs into a standard light stand top. (Neither the microphone nor the 360 degree camera require accurate independent alignment) Currently it is designed for our 52 mm barrel 25 mm studio microphone and Brahma-8 2nd order microphone in the picture. But shockmount can be made for any diameter and weight. We also have versions for Zoom H2n and H3.
The two rings are joined with carbon fibre tubes to make a rugged and lightweight structure. The tubes can be removed for compact packing.
