Your Price: $69.99 CDN
4 models to choose from:

Limited stock available in select stores only

The Apex775 delivers professional high-quality reproduction for drum, percussion, and instrument amplifier miking applications. The uniform hypercardioid pickup pattern isolates the intended source while reducing background interference even on the loudest stages while the internal capsule shockmount reduces handling noise.

Rugged all metal construction ensures the Apex775 will survive the punishment that can occur when close miking high volume sources like guitar amp stacks, or endure the occasional stick hit inevitable to occur when miking snares and toms.

Features

• 40 to 15,000 Hz Frequency Response Ideally Suited for Instruments
• Delivers Crisp Sharp Response on Vocals
• Pneumatic shock-mount system cuts down handling noise
• Extremely Durable All Metal Body & Windscreen

Got this mic when I was younger, and it still works, The plastic end is a little broken but i've hit it woth a drumstick a fair few times, maybe consider glueing it. Recently gave this to my electric guitarist and he LOVES it! Not quite an SM57, but for the price, I would 100% buy this again.

When I was starting out as an audio engineer, I didn't have the money to spend on an SM57 so I decided to try this one out. It sounds great on Indian instruments. I was surprised how similar it sounded when I tested it with a SM57. The durability isn't really there, but this mic will serve you great as an entry level instrument mic. I 100% recommend this mic.

I have a few of these, pretty good noise floor, and great quality considering the price. They are nothing like an SM57, much different character, but they are pretty clean and certainly good for scratch recording for projects and home studios. Pretty good buy, but don't expect it to deliver super high quality recordings.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
