Static large diaphragm microphone.
3 directional settings: cardioid, omni, and figure 8.
Requires 48V phantom power.


When unpacking, I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful aluminum box and the reassuring weight of the microphone.
It will mention the economic feet (eg Millenium) because they will be unable to maintain the SC1100 without their perch does slumps.
Directional settings are welcome and easy to use as easily accessible. The suspension has the same build quality as the microphone and it's all good.
Alas, I am a little disappointed with the "dark" side of the return of the microphone including recordings of acoustic guitars: farewell shimmering highs and defined my Ovation Custom Legend ... This model finally is very very close to the SC400 while costing twice as much. The solution should be doubled taken with a good dynamic mic. The alliance with the SC140 of the same brand proves excellent, I must say that it is an incredible deal and a must have without even considering its surprisingly low price. In transplanted guitar amp, the SC1100 does not depart from his character a bit dull but it goes much better and, again, it add a good dynamic proves that interesting as essential for the final rendering.
In summary, the SC1100 provides only little compared to most economic models of the brand if it is a choice between three types of directional. The excellent workmanship, this a real carrying case are undeniable advantages, but it is clear that it is very comfortable or for recording acoustic guitars or, to a lesser extent, for transplanting amplifiers. Have not tried the voice, so I will say nothing more.
