About this product

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 of 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.

What direction does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has a cardioid recording pattern which means that the microphone records from a single direction. This will allow you to aim the direction for maximum effect to get the best sound quality and to minimise background noise.

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone is fitted with an XLR connector that can connect to a wide range of equipment such as a mixer, an amplifier or a recorder. The XLR connector will allow you to setup the microphone in a matter of minutes using a suitable length cable to prevent it getting in the way or becoming a trip hazard. This means that the microphone can be positioned exactly where it is needed to create the best recording. The microphone can be used to record vocals such as singing or a presentation, or even record many different instruments such as acoustic guitars or piano.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great condenser microphone I was very surprised at the sound and clarity for the price. It compares with a lot of high end mics without the high cost..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great guitar or piano vocal microphone Bought one for guitar vocal who doesn't eat the mic. Works great - up close as well. Just set your gain for the distance you need. No feedback issues for me. Bought 2 more and all work great.
