Organizer “TWBEATBOX.com” said, “This is the biggest beatbox competition event in Asia and we are honoured to make it happen in Taiwan. Fortunately we cooperated with Taiwan’s number 1 microphone manufacturer, MIPRO. They are a well-known brand locally and internationally, who provided us this newly minted, fantastic microphone MM-59B as our official Asia beatbox microphone. It is certainly well deserved to be seen on the world stage.”
MIPRO was also the main sponsor of the event.
“When we knew they wanted to find a microphone for beatbox, we recommended and custom-made our latest dynamic microphone MM-59. After testing, they really liked the sound quality and we decided to base and develop the MM-59B for them,” said MIPRO CEO, K.C. Chang.
The coordinator of TWBEATBOX.com, Mic Lee, said, “For beatboxers, the beatbox microphone should be able to sustain extremely high SPL, otherwise when we make drum sound effect, the high pressure will result in cracking sound.
“Besides, the frequency response should be extended in high frequency as much as possible, to help our vocal percussion techniques to be heard clearly. The MM-59B dynamic microphone completely satisfied our requirements!”
Double, the so called Chinese beatbox master, commented, “The vital gear for beatbox show is the microphone. This time we’re glad to cooperate with MIPRO to make MM-59B for Asia Beatbox Championship. Comparing to other microphones, MM-59B has two strong points, its anti-vibration microphone capsule and anti-pop capsule module. The capsule suspension design can eliminate the resonance from the housing and increase the sound clarity as well as the frequency from high to low is covered so well. The anti-pop grille can be easily detached for easy cleaning for hygienic practices, and ensures uninterrupted sound reproduction.
“Based on using beatbox microphone for tens of years, I have to admit that so far MIPRO MM-59B is definitely the best beatbox microphone in the world.”
