[NAMM] Sennheiser MK 4 Condenser Mic
At the Winter NAMM show 2011 in Anaheim, California, Hall A, Booth 6579, Sennheiser will be presenting its new MK 4 large-diaphragm true condenser microphone.
Manufactured in Germany, this cardioid microphone is presented as Sennheiser’s first large-diaphragm side-address microphone.
The MK 4 aims at professional users in project studios, as well as other recording environments. It is also rugged enough for use on stage, according to Sennheiser.
The MK 4 has a 1-inch diaphragm spattered with 24-carat gold. The metal housing and the elastically mounted capsule are designed to make the microphone tough enough for the most energetic recording situations. The open front of the suspension mount is designed to enable the MK 4 to be positioned close to the sound source.
The microphone is said to have a maximum sound pressure level of 140 dB, and its self-noise of 10 dB(A) is very low.
The MK 4 starts shipping from Winter NAMM 2011 and comes with a microphone clip and a protective pouch. Optional accessories include an elastic suspension, a foam windshield and a popshield.
