At A Glance: MicFX’s Microphone Sleeves are designed to allow you to customise the look of the body of your live microphone. The sleeves come in a wide range of designs and and can be used with any wireless or corded hand-held microphone. They are used by several professional artists around the world, who want to add some sparkle or colour to their mic, and should fit most live mics from all major brands such as Shure, Sennheiser, TC, AKG and Audio Technica. They are available from America and come with a free soft carrying case.

High Notes: MicFX’s microphone Sleeves are handmade in the USA and are available in a wide range of designs including crystal rhinestones, glitter, camouflage, flags, metallic and skulls. If you order through the manufacturer’s website there is also an option to create a custom microphone sleeve with your name or the name of your band written on it. Fitting the sleeve to your mic is a simple process – simply unscrew the top grille, slide on the sleeve, and then screw the grille back on to secure the sleeve in place.

Off Pitch: The sleeves have no opening for on/off switch (or a mic control switch such as on some TC-Helicon’s products). As the designs available tend to primarily focus on more sparkly and glittery designs, they are not going to appeal to everyone’s tastes.

VoiceCouncil Reviewer Says: If you want to add some sparkle to your microphone, then MicFX’s microphone sleeves are a simple and effective solution. They come in a wide range of sizes, so you can find one to perfectly fit your favourite microphone. Providing you get the right size for your microphone, the sleeve will fit tightly to the body of the mic and there should be no worries about it falling off during your performance.  If you want to add a bit of glam to your stage mic, MicFX’s microphone sleeves are definitely worth checking out.
