[NAMM] Samson CS Series Microphones
Samson’s CS Series (Capsule Select) Microphone offers the capabilities of two dynamic microphones in one package.
With Vocal and Instrument mic capsules, the CS Series mic is designed for capturing vocal performances or miking your favorite instruments.
The CS Series mic features both the CS1 (vocal) and CS2 (instrument) selectable mic elements, as well as a handheld base. Both neodymium capsules offer a supercardiod pickup pattern, but are further designed to support different miking applications. The base’s threaded twist-off construction is designed to make it easier to change capsules. The base also features a gold-plated XLR jack (mic cable not included) for connectivity.
The CS1 Vocal Microphone is intended for live performance applications, suited for musicians, front-of-house professionals and more. It has a 60Hz–18kHz frequency response.
Specifically tuned for drums, guitar cabinets, brass and other instruments, the CS2 Instrument Microphone is intended for miking your favorite instruments. The capsule’s flat steel grill is designed to allow for a wide frequency response on the low end (50Hz–18kHz).
You can visit Samson at NAMM 2012, located in Hall A – Booth #6848.
