This microphone has all the performance features that you demand from a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone. It's the perfect solution for recording vocals, acoustic instruments and for use as and overhead drum mic. Featuring a large, dual-layer 19mm diaphragm with a cardioid pickup pattern, it produces a smooth flat frequency response. Its two ultra-thin sensor membranes pick up far more detailed sounds than any dynamic coil. The result is a mic that captures accurate, detailed and smooth audio with warm bass tones and extended top end. You'll hear the strings and wood of your guitar, the breath and resonance of a singer, or the brassy shimmer of a ride cymbal with crystal clear clarity. The design includes a heavy gauge mesh grill, gold-plated XLR connector and an LED for monitoring its 48V of phantom power. It also comes with a swivel mount that can be attached to any standard microphone stand. This is simply one of the best values available from a professional recording microphone.
