CHOIR STICK MICROPHONE (#CSM-41x, #CSM-61x) GENERAL DESCRIPTION
ACE #CSM-41 and #CSM-61 Series Choir Stick Microphones offer the ultimate performance of an overhead hanging choir mic in a totally portable configuration. The low profile, light weight, black, aluminum, space age alloy Stick mic is available in both 40” and 60” models. The Boom Stick places the microphone element ideally above and over any choir. This versatile Stick microphone mounts on any standard microphone stand with any standard taper-body mic stand clip. It is extremely stable and will not easily tip over. Two (2) Shure® pick-up pattern cartridge choices mean one will be right for your needs. Use the Choir Stick Microphones for children or adult groups on the stage steps, portable risers or anywhere.
The CSM-41 (40” long) and CSM-61 (60” long) Choir Stick Microphone features Shure®‘s miniature electret condenser elements. The elements are then assembled into an ultra light weight aluminum boom shaft (.312” Dia.) for long reach, high performance microphone applications. The aluminum boom shafts are made from #6061 - T6 and have a thickness of .049". Each Stick microphone version is supplied with a Taper-Body Clutch Stand Mount and a U-U Clip ready for use with any standard microphone stand. The Shure® Choir Stick Mic uses a miniature electret condenser microphone.
The Shure® series of Stick Mics are available with two interchangeable pick-up cartridges. Shure® pick-up cartridges include Cardioid (115º) and Supercardioid (130º). All Choir Stick Mics are designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, and other demanding sound pickup situations. The small-diameter gooseneck design permits highly flexible positioning while maintaining a smooth, well contoured appearance. The Output Connection Power Module for the Shure® Stick microphone is an Integral 3-pin XLRM-type, phased with Phantom Power Requirements of 11-52V dc, 2.0mA typical and an Output Impeadance EIA rated at 200 ohms.
GENERAL INSTALLATION OF CHOIR STICK MICROPHONES (#CSM)
Ace Backstage Co.’s Choir Stick Microphone is a wide-range miniature condenser microphone designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television, and other demanding sound pickup applications. It requires 9V to 52 V DC from an external phantom power supply (usually provided by the mixer). A recessed switch on the power module permits the choice of flat response or low frequency roll-off to help control undesired ambient noise. Two interchangeable Shure® pick-up cartridges (Cardioid and Supercardioid) are available to permit selection of angle acceptance from 115° to 130°.
SHURE® SUPERCARDIOID ELEMENT CHOIR STICK MIC CONFIGURATION AND INSTALLATION (#CSM-41SC and #CSM-61SC)

Note: Figures 1 and 2 assume that the element in place is a Supercardioid element (115º). The combination of small size and excellent response makes the Choir Stick Microphone ideal for choirs, instrumental groups, or theater stages. A uniform 115° angle of acceptance from the cardioid element provides well-balanced audio pickup. The microphone should be located forward of the front-most source (24”-36”) and above the rear most source (approximately 24”-36”), and “aimed” between them (Figure 1). Increasing the height of the mic above the sources will tend to equalize the sound levels between them, but may also increase the background/reverberant sound pickup. Whenever possible, the distance from the mic to the rear-most pickup should be no more than twice the distance to the front source, to maintain front-to-rear balance (Figure 1). Width of the pickup is approximately 2.5 times the distance to the closest performer.
If additional mics are needed for wide sources, they should not be closer together laterally than 2 to 3 feet, to avoid phase cancellation (Figure 2). This typical spacing is approximately 2.5 feet apart. To orient the mic element in the proper direction, bend the gooseneck housing until the desired location is found. Note: All Shure® elements will have somewhat different configurations depending on the element(s) being used. With the exception of the Supercardioid Element (115°), all element configurations will have broader coverage patterns, leading to variations in the distance to the front-most source, the angle of acceptance (element polar patterns), and so on. Since applications may vary, please use this spec sheet as a guide. All drawings and measurements are for reference only.
