This is a micro electrostatic pressure gradient.
It has 3 directional.

It may take a little while, however .... see below.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been three years since I have this microphone. It has an excellent signal / noise ratio. In addition, its ability to withstand the high pressure is impressive. However, I do not like to catch votes. The sound is not quite "open". Very late in the extreme treble, it lacks a nice medium. Down when a medium it is not well defined. The sound is "card" on the voice.
It can be great on saxophones, brass .... sometimes close on guitar amps ..... You have to find.
In any case this microphone has a color property to him absolutely. This is...…

In any case this microphone has a color property to him absolutely. This is one of its great quality.
Try at least one week before you buy

The value for money is good.

It is a micro electrostatic lectret and large diaphragm. This is the same capsule as the solid tube of the same brand, lamp in hand.
It uses a transformerless circuit, for against it needs a 48V power supply phantme.

3 selectable directivity are: cardioid, omnidirectional or hypercardiode.
It also has a-10dB pad and low cut with a slope -12dB/octave 100Hz.

it has a 3dB bandwidth of 20Hz 20kHz, with a little hollow to 2.5kHz and 4kHz a shelf that extends up to 15kHz before falling ...

It can collect a maximum noise level of 155dB, which is Whereas.

It promises to be multi-trs.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for ending for 9 months. I tried it in diffrent recording setups (voice and masculine fminines, congas, bongos, acoustic guitars, electric guitars) and I was able to express many positions from the source.

I use it in a home studio setup, so the acoustic quality of the catch is felt Scheer.

Russi I get excellent results on both guitars on percussion. each time a sound trs rich, open and dynamic with lots of treble for trs.

the voice, it is true that in some conditions of his, with no pramps tops, it can sound a bit "fermquot,. I agree with the view Previous done everything. But this occurs when the micro gnralement facing the sound source. dsaxe the Ds in that, the sound of the magnitude found.

In Manir gnrale, I would say that the microphone is sensitive to the placement trs, if (the) singer (euse) tends to move too much, the sound can be Ingala . Similarly a rotation of 10, placed between two micro congas will radically change the balance between them and the quality of the sound. (A recall ing a sound that had this same kind of problem with an AKG 414TL2 which has a relatively small aperture, which is also sensitive to the TRS investment, although the quality gn eral is a step up. Normal, it's twice as expensive).

This microphone has a high sensitivity trs to the point that I happened to record voice with the gain at least on my desk under penalty of saturation between converter ... (that true that the singer in question is the safe, but good). In addition he has a background intrinsque low trs, trs short a good signal / noise.

Since I acquired a good pramp (see presonus eureka), I redcouvre the microphone, the sound is now trs transparent, low mdiums have gained in precision The top has a mdium ct "sparkling" trs music while maintaining a warm ct.

MODELS in the compartment infrieurs range from AKG (C3000B), I find that it is more acute in the end, less garish (careful, it's a point of finesse), while having a c t warm. It is true that in premps means, ct chameureux can turn into a carton ct no better effect.

Finally I find the report quality and good price I think I do it again this choice. I find trs versatile, which allows me to not have to invest (for now) in a park of microphones while maintaining a quality sound perfect for what I do (The Neumann one day I, I have a soundproof booth for decision ...).

Pay 420 Euros on sale.

OVERALL OPINION

I have two for two and a half years.
It makes me a little correct torque, honest, but far from being big big sound.
In the same range I do not know if Studio Project is not better (check!)
Report honnte quality price.
The sound is excellent.
Studio (at least in that I work o) is chosen according to the micro range of the instrument, and grain that wants to make. That is why there agnralement trs that little eq taking this type of microphone. Having said that I speak for Neumann, Brauner, KM and Schoeps, this is not the same level.

But in the case of a vote taken with the 4000B, a eq s'avrera essential for the intelligibility and prsence voice. This is not a trs forcment correct operating mode (less than correct with eq API, but in this case on the 4000B has no place in your studio).

OVERALL OPINION

I have this microphone for 2 years. I almost always with a sutil prampli TLAudio 5051. This is my first true large capsule condenser microphone. I had the C1000 before. I AIM first sound much clearer, the output gain and the ability to choose its directivity. This is not necessarily a micro trs versatile and can sound a bit on some cardboard voice as the medium less than a Dfine AT4040 example. That said, I have so far not been complaining about it, considering the price (bought 400). The suspension is very practical book with easy to use and trs (unlike AT !!!). The look is a bit unusual but hey, it was not making the sound either ...…
