This is a multi-pattern condensor microphone from Samson Audio. It's a recording microphone with an XLR connector. It's a good starting microphone for those who want to take a step into the intermediate field of recording with three pattern options and three EQ options. It requires 48V Phanton Power for use which is usually included on any mixer with a built-in Preamplifier, or interface.


What I like most about it is the ability to choose your pattern and EQ. For hip-hop lyrics, for example, one would choose the regular cardioid pattern, but use a low shelf to get rid of the excess boom in the lower frequency levels. It's a great mic, and I'd recommend it to anybody who's got a little higher of a budget. It's simple and easy, and mounts in most shock mounts. The sound is on point, and I'm pretty well versed in microphones, yet I still sometimes break this one out for vocals.
