The Sony C 35 P is a microphone from Sony´s golden aera. It is a cardiod, small diaphragm, top adress microphone and needs 48v phantompower.The sound is somewhere between a Neumann Km 84 i and a Shoeps Colette. There´s a side adress version,the Sony C 36 P with the same capsule and soundwise very similar.These microphones are excellent for
room, piano, overheads, percussion, acoustic guitar... and a lot of other stuff.
Small diagphragm side address condenser studio mic. Aprox 300g each, these little mics are tipped with a side address capsule at the business end and the standard XLR at the other end. The handling noise is invasive, so stand-mount only. However these mics have a hi-mid presence which is distinctive compared to othe similar sized mics, and obviously attenuate low-end frequencies. Very different from the SM57, or the Neumann KM84, 'creamy' but well articulated.
