What can I use this microphone for?
Great for performing to a crowd or getting the perfect sound for your recording, the P220 has a rugged and hardwearing metal design for tough daily use. Pick up vocal, acoustic guitar, brass and other instruments in a clear warm sound with 34dB sensitivity. Get a clear sound, even with loud performances, with a gold spluttered diaphragm to prevent shorting even at a high sound pressure levels. The P220 comes with a shock mount and a carry case to protect it between gigs.

In what positions does this condenser microphone pick up sound?
The P220 has a large one-inch diaphragm and a switchable attenuation pad which can handle up to 155 dB sound pressure level – giving you great performance even at high volumes. The microphone uses a cardioid polar pattern to pick up sounds in front of the microphone with clarity, and reduces the sound to the sides and behind the microphone – making it perfect for live performances and recordings. With a switchable bass-cut filter, you can further cut down on rumble and footfall noise. You can also use the spider-type shock mount to reduce even more noise and give yourself a clear, rich sound.

What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all the audio of an instrument or voice. Using phantom power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds. The P220 can be connected with a standard XLR lead (not included) with a male connector on the microphone to your equipment.
