Vocomotion announced today the release of The Thumper TH70, the latest update in The Thumper series of throat microphones designed for vocal percussionists, beatboxers, and bass singers. Like previous Thumpers, this new model is designed to pickup throat sounds at the source, optimizing the bass response by filtering everything but the lowest, thumpiest frequencies using Vocomotion’s active filtering technology. The TH70 features a new water-proof collar assembly, new removable mic strap, and an extremely reduced retail price.
“I’ve known for a long time that the price of the Thumper mics was too high for the average vocal percussionist,” said Freddie Feldman, creator of The Thumper. “I’ve streamlined the manufacturing process and redesigned the collar completely, bringing the costs down significantly. Now performers at all levels will be able to enjoy the improved bass response that The Thumper offers.”
The Thumper website has been completely overhauled to herald the release of this new model. Built using Flash, the website provides a great way to get to know The Thumper throat microphone.The new Thumper TH70 throat microphone is available from Vocomotion with a retail price of $250 (USD).
