The following You Tube clip is from a concert that I performed
in Vienna last week, with the organizers providing a live video
of my performance.
The performance was recorded using a Zoom H4 with no EQ or
effects being added. What was interesting is the "big sound"
that is obtainable using the MiniFlex 2Mic Model 5 as well as a
Fishman piezo pickup - with the main sound coming from the
In particular, listen to the little percussion part in the
middle of the video - at 2:26.
I just used the MiniFlex 2Mic Model 10b today. It was great! It
outperforms any other Microphone that I have ever used. My banjo
sounds clear and natural like it is supposed to! That is the
best mic I have ever used! By the way I got several compliments
on the tone and people had never seen your microphone before I
am very proud to be the owner of one.
I just wanted to send a quick note that your custom MiniFlex
2MIc Model 1 with bass rolloff is amazing! I have now used it
for many gigs, everything from stage work to battery powered
beach wedding, and it has been 100% reliable. It is a true
pleasure to know that my tone will be consistent using different
Very little EQ is needed, and when I perform with a more
percussive attack, the thump is like a big John Bohnam kick
Thanks so much for sending me the custom model and I look
forward to many stress free, great sounding shows!
Jason McGuire's Review of the MiniFlex 2Mic Model 1
"Ken Donnell's MiniFlex 2mic Model 1 - is blowing my mind today.
Outrageous stage levels without feedback. I EQ matched it to my
DPA4099 and it sounds nearly identical and allows me easily
double the volume and increased isolation.
You do need a system
with fully parametric EQ and the ability to notch out problem
frequencies to get the most out of it. Inverting phase on the
channel took care of most feedback issues.
With my QSC Touchmix
8 - it is a breeze to dial in. This can beat ANY piezo system."

Andreas Ober Andreas recorded a new personal acoustic guitar composition
entitled, "Already Home". On this recording he used a
custom Hanika classical guitar with Thomastik-Infeld KR 116
strings. For the mics he used a MiniFlex Mode 1 - 2mic and
two Rode Nt5 condenser mics - recorded into a Zoom H6. Recording software was FL Studio.
In the recording, the two rode mics are positioned one on the
right and one on the left. The MiniFlex 2Mic had two tracks
almost in the middle with one track positioned slightly
left and one track positioned slightly right. So 50% of the
recording is the rode mics and 50% of the recording is the
MiniFlex 2Mic. Effects used were a parametric eq and the Valhalla
