Many years ago, Ben Sneesby recognized a gap in the microphone market. It seemed that far too many companies were simply purchasing and assembling parts from Asia and calling themselves “manufacturers”. This led him on the quest to bring to market a product that would utilize the best quality components and materials, with the entire microphone assembly manufactured and assembled in his own factory. All BeesNeez Microphones are lovingly made in the factory that Ben owns with his wife, Veronica, and their children in Kyogle NSW Australia. The result has been amazing. Not only do BeesNeez Microphones look fantastic, but they also have an unforgettable sound.
Ben has experience in all aspects of the industry as a musician, producer, and engineer. Thus, understandably, he had (and still has) the desire to make the very best microphone available today. Ben’s unique microphone capsule design has been famed as the best capsule being made today. Each capsule is made from a brass or bronze rod, then turned, milled, and drilled, until the result is a piece of art. This is the building block of a great microphone and just one of the reasons why BeesNeez Microphones are now considered the leading boutique microphone manufacturer.
The electronics in all BeesNeez microphones are of the highest quality. The tubes used in our microphones are hand-selected from European and American new old stock (NOS). When deciding on a tube for our microphones, we don’t just test for noise. We burn them in and then listen, to ensure that every tube used meets our requirements.
So many of the microphones manufactured today are modeled and named after a U47, a 251 or a C12. These microphones are still, and always will be, among the greatest microphones ever made. So rather than just make another clone, we have decided to create our own designs. (Really, the world does not need another clone manufacturer.)
The BeesNeez Microphones range can be divided in four separate ranges: the Tribute, Producer, Classic, and Studio series. The Tribute series was designed not to clone the classics, but rather to be a tribute to them. The Producer series was designed with the recording engineer and musician in mind. The Studio series will meet the needs of both the professional and home recording studio.
