Micro pressure gradient hypercardoïde double ribbon.
Used in music as in the sound film, this microphone is used by many engineers as the renowned Pierre Gamet.


I use it for 2 years now.
I had the opportunity to try it during my studies and since I do not separate more.

I will use the microphone to the sound film as music. For the sound film is not very easy to use, it is perched very close and have a very good mixer in order to ensure the pre-amplification, (it's a very insensitive micro). But what a sound! Low medium warm and present, acute and non-aggressive nature is a real pleasure to work with. Moreover, its low sensitivity has saved me in many situations. It is the same for the sound of music, c ' is a real gem of a guitar amp and brass.

Quality / price ratio excellent. It's a microphone that I recommend to all the world
