Buena Park, CA – October 2009… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and audio/video professional, is pleased to announce the availability of two new microphone clips—the models MHR-422 and MHR-425. Manufactured from state-of-the-art materials, the new microphone clips are all but impossible to break and, as a result, deliver years of service.
The new Hosa MHR-422 and MHR-425 microphone clips are offered in 22 mm and 25 mm diameters respectively. These two sizes will readily accept the overwhelming majority of microphones currently available. The MHR-422 is designed for use with dynamic mics while the MHR-425 is designed for wireless mics. They are threaded for US compliance and will fit atop most any microphone stand sold in the United States. Additionally, a European (EU) adapter is included. Both models are RoHS compliant.
Both microphone clips are manufactured from a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). This cutting-edge material is a physical mix of rubber and plastic and yields the benefits of each. These new microphone clips offer a more “grippy” feel than traditional clips. This attribute makes them easier to handle and they will not scratch the surface of one’s expensive microphones. Thanks to their 90 Shore A hardness, these new clips are more durable and longer lasting than plastic models. The microphone clips are all but impossible to break if the microphone stand is dropped or experiences rough handling during transport.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology’s National Marketing Manager, commented on the new Hosa MHR-422 and MHR-425 microphone clips. “Microphone clips are the Rodney Dangerfield of professional audio equipment,” says Pusey. “They get no respect until such time as they fail—then suddenly the performer has a big problem. Even gaffer tape can’t resolve the inconvenience of a faulty microphone clip. Thanks to the thermoplastic elastomer used to construct these clips, the new MHR-422 and MHR-425 are extremely durable and are guaranteed to provide years of reliable service. This cutting-edge material makes it easier to insert or remove a microphone during the heat of performance and the two sizes will easily accept a wider range of microphones. I’m confident musicians and other performers will appreciate the build quality of these new workhorse mic clips.”
